First Day of School...

Tuesday was Marlow's first day of Pre-K.  So exciting and so sad all at the same time.  How do they get so big so fast?  I swear once you have a kid your life gets put on fast forward.  Do you agree?

 I made her skirt out of a hand me down button up shirt, with turquoise linen for the pocket.  Used black satin ribbon for the bow on the pocket.

 She was super excited about her hello kitty backpack!  I offered to make her one and she said "maybe we could just buy one."  Seriously? Well, ok.
 Favorite part of the day has to be our morning commute!
 It was hard to do, but the teacher rushed us out of the room assuring us she was old enough and independent enough, so we turned her loose and went on our way.  She had a great first day!

Goodbye summer...

 We spent the last (technically) day of summer vacation collecting seaglass along a beautiful stretch of just about desserted beach (upon which location I have been sworn to secrency).  We tagged along with my sister Heather and her boys Asher and Lukas.

So here's to summer, with its sense of adventure, endless days, and beautiful weather!  I'll miss you!
