Back to School Already

Skye started school last Thursday.  Her school started year around this year and unlike most of the other parents in the area who were absolutely outraged, I was really looking forward to the year around schedule.  However, the first few weeks of summer break flew by so fast, I was starting to think maybe the short summer wouldn't be so good.  But then the last couple of weeks before school started, nearly every day I would tell myself, "Yeah, this is why I was happy for the short summer and year around!"  So in the end, school started just in time!  Here's Skye in her cute, colorful, new outfit the first day of school.  It was a little bright so she didn't give her best smile, but she's still cute!

I can't believe my little girl is already in first grade.  It had been so quiet around the house with her at school all day.  It's good in a way, but it's also sad to see how fast your kids grow up. 
 She was pretty exhausted when she finally got home from school that day.  It was a hot, long day!  But a nice, cool ice-cream bar helped to cheer her up.  Those first two days were a bit of a struggle, but hopefully she'll find her groove and get excited about school again!  Now, what are Jack and I supposed to do with all our spare time?!
