We tried to hide...

We played hard and ran fast but summer's end found us anyway. Last night we trudged uphill to the elementary school with heavy feet, longing for the freedom of flip flops and days spent at the pool. We met Avery's 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Reilly (yay!), and although we'd been resisting, we couldn't help but get caught up in the excitement and anticipation.

This morning we headed up the same hill. Today there was a skip in our step.




Although we will really miss having Avery around all day I know she is going to have a great year!

you guys are freaking me out with all this school stuff . . . and everyone saying how time flies. I just want him to be little for a long long time. Pretty please.
