First day of school!!

First full day of preK school for both Catherine and Elisabeth! It's only 1/3 mile from our front door to the school door, so we will be walking daily.

It's hard to face it!!!

Actually they were delighted to be going!

It's only scary before you walk into the door....

And then as soon as they hung up their backpacks and found their special places to sit, fully equipped with TOYS, they made themselves right at home and never glanced back at Mom and Dad!



So Mom and Dad enjoyed a delightful 2.75 hours of freedom by . . . going grocery shopping. Wheee! And then we went back to get the girls. They both said they liked school and had fun! Walks with them always take longer than they take. There's always interesting things to stop and look at.

so what was everyone looking at? just yesterday when I pulled out the laundry hamper to take downstairs to the laundry room I found the Cutest!! little gecko, or some sort of lizard. About 2 inches long, brown and yellow mostly with a hint of orange.
I took him outside and let him go play in the bushes, I hope he lives.

Abbie started pre-K last week, too. How did they get so big?
