1st Day

So, so, so busy the last week or so. Plus I think I'm still adjusting to being back at this altitude. All I want to do is sleep!

School started today, and Jack is now a big kindergartner! He was so impatient to start all last year when Kate was there, but as the big day approached, he got more and more nervous (which manifested in some not-so-lovely behavior!) Fortunately the transition has been made easier by having the same teacher that Kate did, and once we were at school, he did great.

How can someone be so big yet so little
all at the same time??
Adjusting to the surroundings
Getting down to business
And my big 1st grader.
Styling all by Kate.
She did great. I knew she would.
Tomorrow I have a hair appointment. I've been pondering a pixie cut all summer (I had one post college and loved it!) but haven't been able to pull the trigger. I watched The Greatest a few nights ago, and Carey Mulligan's cut in the film has inspired me to go for it. Something like this...
Can't wait! Hopefully it will be easy and cool (so hot the last few days!) AND cute for my first triathlon this weekend! I've been a bit of a slacker since we got back from New England. Maybe good hair will help me slog through it? Ack!

Mikayla is starting kindergarten on the 30th and let's say that I just start crying thinking about it. She is so ready but I am not! Can't we just stick with preschool for a few more years?

Have fun with the haircut. It is always good to shake things up.

I did not know you were training for a triathlon. I have wanted to do one forever but never stuck with the training long enough. I could manage a sprint though. Good Luck and have FUN!!
