First day back to school

 
 Today was the first day of school for both Katharine and Matthew. No longer at the same school as little brother, Katharine started first grade today at her "big girl" elementary school, Stiles Point Elementary. I think it is going to be a great place and she went off to class like a trooper this morning.
Matthew is now a "butterfly" (pre-k) at ECDC and had no trouble getting back in to the routine of things.

First grade, here we come!

Tonight was the kick off for the school year with an evening for new students. We joined the PTA, bought sweatshirts (featured here), and took a tour from a very dynamic little 5th grader. We think it is going to be a great year! Go dolphins!

Horse Camp!

 This week Katharine spent half days at Stone River Stables where she spent lots of times with horses. She absolutely loved it and is featured here trotting.

She said she wants to go again next year but is hoping she can have "a black, fuzzy helmet (instead of a hard one), those tights pants the girls wear (jodphurs), and some black boots".

I took horseback riding lessons for years as a kid so I am so excited that KK enjoyed this experience. We'll see what the future holds!

Meet Rosie

Last Christmas when we mailed our presents to Nanna down in the Keyes, we included the pink flamingo you see featured here. At the time, we had no idea my mom and "Rosie" would become such good pals. Nanna loves to send us pictures of all the fun things Rosie gets into. As you can see here, Rosie was out sailing today and has left the Keyes to spend the summer in Massachusetts. Who knows what she will be getting into next.

Trip to the dentist

Conversation between Matt and the dental hygienist:

Hygienist: how many teeth did you bring to the dentist?

Matt: all of them!
