Happy Birthday, Grandmommy!

For Grandmommy's 89th birthday, she wanted to see as many great-grandchildren as possible.  She and Granddaddy invited us to a kid-centric party including pizza, balloons, and Matchbox cars... not to mention, cake and ice cream!  Needless to say, we all had a lot of fun celebrating!  (Below see the birthday girl and her hubby with 5/6 of their great-grandchildren.)

For Chet...

...who taught Kira how to whistle.  (You can't really hear any whistling in the video, but she's actually getting the hang of it!)

John started preschool this morning.  He'll be in his 3-year-old class 3 days a week.  Day 1 went wonderfully!
Simon wanted in on the picture action.  He grabbed his bag to hop in the picture.  I think he thought he would get to go to school as well.  Sorry, Simon.  One more year with Mommy!

Pool Time

John, Simon, and I have headed to the pool a couple of times this week and savored the last month or so of pool weather.  As far as I'm concerned, eating lunch in a still wet bathing suit is one of the best parts of childhood.

As I type this, Kira is at school - her third day of kindergarten.  So far, so good.  She has gotten off the bus with a beaming face the past two afternoons.  (The sweet first grader who lives across the street and sits with Kira is a God-send!)  I can't get a lot of information out of Kira about the day, but everything thus far has been positive.  I can't quite believe my baby girl is in elementary school!
