My Lily-pie is in preschool this year. She was beyond excited about her backpack and lunch box. Her little backpack says, "bonjour" and 'happiness" all over it. When we saw it in the store she squealed with excitement and tried it on. Her little lunch box is bright orange (her favorite color) and she had to have it IN her backpack like her big sisters. I miss my little side-kick during the day. A lot.

Oh boy, can you tell Gwen is excited about being in 1st grade?! She searched and searched for the perfect backpack. When she found this gray denim hello kitty one the search was over instantly. She said, "other kids might say hello kitty is baby but I'll say, I LOVE her". I love Gwenner's confidence. She checked the computer daily tracking its arrival. So cute.
She loves her teacher and her class. Lily misses playing with her in the mornings and I do too. Gwen makes me so happy.
I can't believe my Ellers is in 4th grade!!! She loves her teacher and has a bunch of friends in her classs. This year she told me she had to get a BIG backpack because in 4th grade that's when you have lots of homework and BIG books. I love this girl so much.

The girls are back in school and are happy to have routine again in their lives -- I must say, I am too. I stopped at the flower stand today and got some fall flowers for the family room. Makes me happy. Our family room is finally coming together for me. The scale is difficult in this room because of the vaulted ceilings. That table in the corner is 60" across. It's a kitchen table and still gets swallowed up in the corner. I would love to have a round table there but this was one we just had and I've made it work. I now have a lamp that has the correct scale for the room. I love the silver. To the right of the fireplace there needs to be a chair to balance out the room. I have an amazing one in our storage unit that I found at a consignment shop over a year ago. I just need to save my pennies to get it reupholstered. Most of my day is with my sweet girls and doing laundry and grocery shopping and cleaning...fussing with my house is my hobby and passion and my creative outlet. Today just putting the flowers out and taking pictures made me happy.
