Today was the first day of school! Last night we had a special dinner with a "Happy Back to School" cake, and ice cream. M. said it was missing two letters- U & N. I guess he was feeling UNhappy about going back to school! Some snazzy new Red Sox notebooks and folders seemed to lift his spirits. The little guy is doing Joyschool, and today was his first day too. He wanted me to stay with him on the first day, which frankly worked for me because I was getting a little panicky about sending him off without me! Hopefully we'll both survive his first "solo" Joyschool day next Tuesday. Another first for today- my Dad caught a "keepah!" (that's a "keeper" for you non Bostonians!) This means that today he caught his first striped bass of the year that was over 28" long, the minimum length to legally take home a fish. Here is Dad showing the little guy how to filet a fish. As Dad was slicing it up, he asked, "Can fish cry?" I sure hope not! Overall a pretty exciting day. Don't you just love September?
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
