Emma's first day of sixth grade. I love this picture. Parisian tote bag, lace flats, ruffle skirt and a style that is completely unselfconsciously Emma. I've never met a kid (or adult) so comfortable with who they are.
Emma's first ballet shoes for classes that begin this week. She is counting down the days.
The first pie my Sweet Hubby has ever baked. It is a Cushaw pie. Cushaw is a strange green and white striped gourd that is supposed to taste a bit like pumpkin. Rumor has it the pie is delicious. I have some serious food texture issues and couldn't get past the first bite so I can't be sure.
Maddie's first day of being a College Sophomore. I have no idea how my little baby got to be a College Sophomore.
Maddie's first textbook with Alice in Wonderland on the cover. How could you not like a class that starts out like that?
Lastly, today is my first day of being kid free since the middle of last May. A day just for me. The one I've been dreaming of all summer long. The possibilities are endless. Catching up on my reading, a new knitting project, finishing season one of Dawson's Creek on DVD. Yes, you read that right. Whatever this day holds, I'm going to enjoy every moment. I hope you do too.
