Monday was literally the perfect day. Not a cloud in the sky, breezy enough to be comfortable and just hint that fall is coming. We took the boys out bike-riding which they loved, to the playground, to Calico and Creme for the very last day of home-made pie and icecream of the summer, and to Grammy's to swim. Who could ask for more?
On Tuesday my big boys went off to school. I was rather broken up about Liam going to his first day of preschool but he marched in with Daddy like a champ and didn't look back. Colin was thrilled to be back as well and as I drove him in and he asked what day it was, he exclaimed: "Good thing I'm going back to school after summer vacation, I forgot all the days of the week!" Liam is convinced that "MY Miss Linda" is his teacher while Colin has "HIS Miss Linda" and never the twain shall meet. I shudder to think what he'll do when he really grasps that "they" are one and the same.
The Boys. Dressed to kill for preschool orientation day. (It's also just easier to do a headcount when I know they are all dressed the same!)
What a difference a summer makes. In June Colin still had to use floaties, now he is officially a "swimmer" and loves to dive down to the bottom of the pool to retrieve things.
