Maelee would have started kindergarten last week, friends. She would have been so ready to take on the world of school. Her little pink-ish backpack. Her dress and sparkly shoes. Five years and four months old, our firstborn would have been no more baby and all girl. So yes, she has crossed my mind as I think about that milestone this year and prepare for that for our boy next year.
You bet I loved the fact I could take these photos of our rainbow boy this morning. He had a year of two-day per week preschool last year and he started three-day per week this morning. Eli K (since now there is ANOTHER Eli in his class!), was roaring and ready to go back to school to see friends. And the new Eli? He wore a yellow shirt today. That's all Eli really could say. He painted and played and life is just grand at four, folks.
And let's not forget about this adorableness that is our Annalee. She has really gotten into a handful of stuffed animals, a few special ones get carried around. Puppy has stayed at the top of the charts, even after a week-plus hiatus in Buffalo (I mean even Puppy realizes it's a happy place and decided to stow away under the bed - thanks for the return Great Gma and cousin Mike!).
So there's our two today. One in the morning, the other in the afternoon in this very lovely fall day in ND.
