Adios Summer

So much for being back at regular blogging. I've been a slacker and honestly, boring as can be, haha.

The last few days of summer vacation for Pi and I were coming to a quick close, so we made the best of it outside. We spent a lot of time exploring the local playgrounds. This particular playground has a tire swing that the kid is in love with.

It also has geese that just walk around the playground. They have no fear...they will follow you around without hesitation.

While Pi was exploring the local kid spots, anonymous hubby and I have been on a mission to find a good cup of iced coffee. We must have sampled half the places in this town and while they were all good, I still miss my Dunkins coffee. Good thing there is one by my job!

Today is the first day of school and if I do say so myself, I've got one cute 4th grader on my hands. I wonder where she could have possibly gotten that fabulous hair? heehee

Although, this must be someone else's child. Mine has never picked up a book in the morning. Alien Piper?

Yes, that's a Mary Kate and Ashley book. They never go away!

She was nervous this morning, and I was nervous for her. Who am I kidding...I'm still nervous! She doesn't get out for nearly 5 hours and I am tempted to go sit in front of the school and wait for her right now! The only thing holding me back is knowing that I would embarrass the crap out of her if her new classmates saw me sitting there.

It can't be that embarrassing, right? LOL.

The first day of a new school ... WOW ... Pi and Mom will be just fine!

Wow, school starts late there in the Northeast! My kids went back to school on August 24th. Pi does have very pretty hair - you both do. I'm totally jealous! : )

I'm sure Pi will be fine at her new school - she seems like an outgoing kid. My daughter started a new school this year for 6th grade (still Catholic school, but one for learning disabled kids). I was nervous about it, but she's doing great, and is much happier than at her old school. And I also started a new job (a real permanent job with benefits!). I need to update my blog - I've been lazy about blogging ,too.

I hope Pi enjoyed her first week at Public school. As a PS teacher, I hope she is getting one of the true professionals out there in the trenches!!! Best of Luck!!!
