Trying something new.....let's see if this works. This is a movie from way back in November of 2006; the kids were just over 2 years old. Cate cracks me up in this....

Off to School We Go!

The kids started pre-Kindergarten on September 3rd. Such a big day!! They are going to St. Stephen's Lutheran School, at the Lutheran church by our house. Not that we are Lutheran, but it's close and our God-daughter (who is also not Lutheran) went there and loved it. They only teach pre-K and K, and have been doing it for decades. Their teacher is Mrs. Barillier (Baa-rill-EE-A) and she looks like she could be June Cleaver's slightly more stylish best friend. The kids love their new school, love their new friends, and are having a blast. I, on the other hand, am having tremendous anxiety over packing their lunches every day - my God, the pressure! WHO KNEW? I want them to eat healthy food, but I also don't want them to be those kids, you know the ones, the ones who come to school with carob clusters and all-natural sweetened-only-with-fruit-juice oat brannie O's and try to trade with the other kids for normal foods like cookies and, yeah, that's never going to happen. But I also don't want to fill their lunch boxes with Oreos, potato chips and Ding-Dongs. Where is my happy medium? WHERE?

Okay, enough angst. Pictures!
