New Routine

 Mia loves school. The evening of her first day I overheard her telling Ellie, "I can't wait until tomorrow, so I can go to school again.... I love school" 
This made me smile. I am a huge fan of Christian education. Huge fan.

 Nate and I recently had a discussion on whether we were a pie family or a cake family. And probably there are families that are neither and sad to say, we like pie and cake. But we lean more towards liking cake. And cake-y pies. 

 She was not sleeping here, but I could tell she was tired. Elizabeth goes to afternoon K. 
It is going to be rough on her. Up until this point she has needed a nap every day.

 Today was her first day. She says she did not learn anything. And yet she was telling stories that left me know that she did learn.  How to respond in a classroom. 

Stu stormed around after his sisters were off to school. Did not walk home from the bus stop very cheerful, and then insisted on playing with the light switches until I put him to bed.

There is a beautiful adoption story over at one of my favorite blogs.

My Mom said she's getting me a hydo flask for my birthday. Excited. Keeps water cold very long and it does not sweat.

One more thing, Love my Rubbermaid Reveal Mop. I hope it lasts longer than the Swiffer ones I had before. The mop head itself is larger. There are no batteries to go dead. The bottle is refillable. Exactly what I wanted. Nate found it at WalMart the last time my swiffer died.

Camping 2012

 We might never want to do it again. But we had a great time camping this Summer.

Stuart did not like Smokey the Bear
