A very good first week.

The first week of Kindergarten was a success. Alexa wanted to know why she could not go back tomorrow. It's the weekend baby, time to enjoy it. She's made some new friends, had her first gym class and is getting used to eating lunch in the "big lunchroom." After a rough second day for Ava, at daycare by herself for really the first time, we haven't seen any more tears I'm happy to say.

We're taking a much needed break from visiting the cottages this weekend. Time to catch up on laundry and get ready for the new week. Besides the obvious stuff that goes with starting school, I am absolutely swamped at work. And then there is Jury Duty on Thursday. Blah. This is the 3rd time I've been called, and I've already served on a short Federal trial. Of all times for work, this couldn't of come at a worse time.

I forgot in the haze that was the last weeks of summer to post pictures from our Cedar Point trip. One last quick "hurrah" before school started. The girls LOVED it, and this year Ava was big enough to ride most kids rides. She even rode the Woodstock Express roller coaster. She was not a big fan of it, I'll have to find the picture and scan it in. Priceless.

Here are a few from the day:Next week I can post my September Apron Strings projects and I'll also be posting on their blog with more details on the canvas I created for the kit.

I love your Cedar Point pics. I was just going through some old family pics tonight and found the ones I took when we went there in 1996. Fun times! Glad Ava is loving kindergarten.
