First Day


We had a peaceful morning after a night of weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth (me) concerning the preparation of this all important bike (...two new tires, two new tubes, a defective bike pump...). The Warlock took ten minutes to humble me and save me from despair by using our car tire pump.
Will there ever be a year that I don't feel like crying when I send this girl off to the first day of school?

I don't know. The end of summer is so sad for me too. Some days I am the first parent at school to pick him up because we just are so anxious to get him back. She looks lovely and wish we could walk home with you. Love to you all.

Her outfit is color coordinated to match her bike! I love that girl. I would be sad to send her of for the first day of school too, she is so fun to have around.

Aw, now I want to start riding our bikes to school. If I didn't have so many kids to take every day (not mine, just ones I watch) then I would totally go bikes! Hope Pippi has a great year!
