Count your blessings...

So many things seem to go wrong, but so many things have gone right that the wrong ones don't really seem so bad. Our airconditioner decided to break. As of yet, I'm not sure when we'll be able to repair/replace it. So here I sit in the hum of the fans and the one window unit... but my girls are playing together, searching under the couches with a flashlight. It's like a treasure hunt to them. They've found some toys and sunglasses and they're having a blast. Caleb is crawling around his playpen in nothing but a diaper, happy as always. Benjamin is playing at Grandma's. Jeremy is out with Josh, doing what he can to make us cool and comfortable again. And I am sitting here, counting my blessings, rather than cursing the heat. AC is a luxury after all, and hey, maybe the eletric bill will be significantly lower if we go a while without running the air.

Libby started kindergarten this morning. She had a slow start.

It took so long to wake her up that even Ben and Abby tried to help.

Eventually she really was awake, but she liked pretending that she wasn't. Ben decided to help her open her eyes for the photo.

I took this one right before we left the house. Doesn't she look excited?

Here she is standing just outside of the school (a local church runs the 3k, 4k, and 5k program).

She immediately found her assigned desk, having remembered which one it was from the orientation last Thursday.

Mrs. S. had put a book on each child's desk for them to look at while they waited.

Have a good day, sweet girl!

When I picked her up today the teacher's aide said that she'd had a good day, but she'd fallen asleep. *blush* I made sure that she got to bed on time last night but she was wide awake at 4am asking for a glass of milk. Hopefully she'll be tired enough to sleep through the night tonight and we'll have no more napping in school. Also I asked her what she had for lunch (which I packed) and she told me that she had "broccolis, but I saved my carrots". She finished her teddy grahams and carrots while she watched tv.

You've Changed 88% in 10 Years

You're practically a new person these days, and no one from your past may even be around to notice.
You've moved on, changed your life, and totally transformed your personality - probably all for the better!

Caleb just turned five months last week and he's already trying to crawl on his hands and knees!
