First day of school 2010-2011

Obligatory pictures. We are lucky her arm swelling went down and her cast was replaced. We couldn't fit any of her clothes over her elbow! The girl would have been wearing tank tops and undershirts to school. Not exactly in the bounds of the dress code.

Amelia was on a little camping trip with her grandma when we went backpack shopping. Tess picked out both of them. She did a great job. Last year Amelia wanted a messenger bag. After the first week of school, she came home and begged for a backpack. It was so heavy on her tiny body. When we asked her this year if she wanted a messenger bag she told us not til she grows a foot or two.

It was hard leaving Tess. Like, really hard. I cried. A lot. She just seemed so small and so tiny. I feel like I was feeding her to the wolves. I'm totally not. She has a darling teacher. We went and worked in her classroom on Friday and got to know her. She will be great. Tess has been so awesome this summer. She is sweet and fun and loves to hang with me and help. I will miss her terribly. Terribly!

Love Amelia too. She is great. She has to be the smallest kid in her class. It was hard to take her damaged to a class of kids who are all giant compared to her. We will miss her too, but we've done this already with her. She was so excited to go back and get into a routine. She misses that about school.

I am pretty grossed out by our school districts lunches. They cook it all at a central kitchen and ship it in. You can't exactly call that healthy. I miss the days when we had little old lady cooks who made everything from scratch. It was lovely. So this year we are doing Bento Boxes. As I get more into it, we will find cuter and easier ways to Bento it. We bought some "Fresh and Fit" boxes for our first run. These little boxes stack into a larger box and have an ice pack inside. I've ordered some more online and we will add as we go. When the hubster lived in Japan, he became a fan of the Bento. I'm glad we could incorporate it into our daily routine.

Love the pictures! Sincerely - your family is beautiful!
....and the Bento boxes? Good heavens, I completely forgot about those! What a great idea for lunches. Hum.....I may have to borrow the idea.
It was good to see you the other day....even if it was just in passing :) Was hoping to chat with you a second or two, but I guess such is the schedule of a mom.
Hope things are great with your family!

But those of us who have desire discarded the intuition in the miraculous still are in the coolness of revelations which are the purpose of faith. We too have our revealed religion.
