First Day of School

It is finally here...
Annabelle stayed up for hours organizing her pencil case. I finally had to take it away from her or she never would have gone to sleep.
Grace filled Annabelle in on everything she could expect from Kindergarten. Based on her description, it sounds like a pretty good time.
The girls got up on time (we shall see how long that lasts) and didn't complain too much about me wanting to take pictures. Their only complaint was how heavy their backpacks were this morning, but I assured them that the first day was always like that and pretty much everything that they brought in today would be staying at school.

Let's hope this is the start of a wonderful school year.

Annabelle Lee

Annabelle has started a new craft project - making friendship bracelets!! It is pretty slow going, but she is working so hard. Hopefully she will have a finished bracelet to show you all soon.

Excellent Adventure: Take 2

Annabelle and Grace are off on another Excellent Adventure with Nami and Geet. They left at about 6:30 this morning (which is why Grace looks a little less than thrilled - she is actually very excited, it is just *very* early for her) to be able to make a Ferry ride this afternoon. I miss them already.

Stubborn Much?

Faith has been in no hurry to walk. At a little over 18 months, she is just now starting to walk around in the house - albeit only when absolutely necessary. At her last checkup, the pediatrician suggested we only pick her up when she could not get to where she needed to be on her own (as in when getting into her crib, high chair, car seat or stroller). He said she wouldn't like it at first, but eventually she would get tired of crawling and discover how much she loved walking.

I think perhaps he underestimated her will to crawl.

If in the first picture you aren't noticing anything unusual (besides the face of a child who clearly is not in the mood to be photographed), please scroll down to picture number #2. We shall call this exhibit A.
These bandages are covering the scrapes on her knees from crawling on the driveway. She had many toys to ride on, grass to crawl on, as well the ability to *gasp* walk around. Nope, she decided it would be more fun to crawl on cement until bloody.
One would think that crawling on cement would be painful, that there would be tears... Apparently not. She was laughing and chasing her brother around when I picked her up and noticed that she was bleeding.
And in true stubborn form, apparently she won't be keeping the bandaids on either.

It has been super hot here - just like everywhere else. Yesterday we beat the heat by filling up the mini pool on the deck and having popsicles.

Southern Snow

Here are some pictures from the "blizzard" that hit NC. Miss Faith stayed inside since she had a cold.

The Boy's First Real Haircut

The days of cutting Michael's hair in the kitchen in his high chair were long gone. He needed to go in for a real haircut and now that Daddy was home, he was just the guy to take him.

Michael did fairly well, with Daddy holding his shoulders and the man cutting his hair with a pretty firm grip on his head.
He looks much better now, and much older (which I am not too happy about).
He is thrilled about the cookies he got for behaving, he doesn't really care so much about the haircut.
