Oatmeal buddies


Sam & Eliza are oatmeal buddies.

Do you remember planting those little seeds in the stryofoam cups way back in the day?
Well Sam did at preschool and look at what has grown since...

Luckily, too, I got these great shots because a few short days later the sunflower may have 'lost' a battle to the wild rumpus that is Sam.  He was certain I could "tape" it back together. 
Alas, we shall gather some seeds and start again at the new house...
Love how all things grow...
except for maybe those little babies of mine.

Daddy's Race!

On our last day of vacation, Daddy ran a duathalon relay with his biking buddy Adrian.  It was convenientally located 5 minutes from our lake house! 
So we just had to spectate and cheer on our favorite runner.

We found a great spot right at Daddy's turn-around so we got to cheer twice!

Love that runner-Dad of ours...

My own first grader!

Here's Sammy on his first day of school!

And I now officially have my own first grader.
Unbelievable, really.
I'm beyond excited for her year this year.
Not because I'm in love with first grade
(oh wait, I am...)
But because school is so amazing and exciting and learning to read is just about the best thing ever...
I mean that and gym and recess.
Oh, and lunchboxes too...
apparently they're pretty amazing too.
