"School Is In"

"Now you may think I'm nerdy and telling you lies,
but I'm going out tonight to buy my school supplies

Cause this semester's gonna be a gas,
I said school is in at last

School is in, oh yeah
School is in, yeah yeah yeah, school is in

School is in, oh yeah
School is in, yeah yeah yeah, school is in . . ."

-Josie Cotton, Valley Girl Soundtrack

Yes, I'm excited. Can you tell? St. Mary's School starts this Monday, August 29th, promptly at 8:00 am with Mass. I'm even planning a trip to the uniform store tomorrow, after we deliver lunch, to update Sophia's school uniform needs. Most of the school supplies have been purchased. The only things left on our list is two red pencils and a ruler. I'm hoping that if Sophia and Harrison aren't together all day, every day, maybe they'll learn to appreciate one another. Of course in the back of my mind I know they may never appreciate one another, and if they ever do it probably won't happen until they're adults, but one can dream.

I can hardly believe my first baby is going into the first grade. Where did the time go? She actually is a very good kid. Despite my grumbling about her. Not as innocent as I would have hoped though. When she was three she told her grandma that she wanted to get her nose pierced. Where did that come from? And when we're out shopping, she always notices peoples tatoos. We may be in trouble here. And maybe it's the age, but her favorite past time is dressing up and putting on make-up. The dressing up part I get, but I didn't think she's be that into make-up until she was approaching her teens. It's not like I'm a great influence, I don't even bother with make-up most days. And a fashion diva, I'm not. My favorite shopping is grocery shopping, and I avoid the mall like the plague.

Whenever we're at the Wild Animal Park, I try to take the kids pictures in this fake egg they have. So these pictures are Sophia at 3 months, 6 months, and 4 years. Time to go and take another photo.
