Well, it's official. I now have two kiddos in school. Tessa was so excited yesterday about going to school that she couldn't quit saying how excited she was. She was also happy to be wearing the outfit that she bought with her birthday gift card from Sarah. I was happy that I found the back pack and matching lunch bag at a thrift store last year for a whopping $2.99. It was a big suprise for her to get those! I think she forgot to brush her teeth this morning, oops. For lunch today she'll be eating sugar snap peas, watermelon, a ham and cheese sandwich on whole wheat and a pepperidge farm jelly cookie. Her teacher is Mrs. Ebler and she seems very nice. Some how, Tessa scored high at screening (not my doing, I worked WAY less with her than I did with Jakob, she just picks things up more easily...maybe it's being a girl) and is in the advanced reading with Mrs. Bradley (the dreaded teacher, Jakob had her for homeroom in K, ugh, I wish I never had to see her again). Thanks to Shelby for these adorable shoes Tessa wore today. Aaron was being very silly this morning and just wanted to come home and have his OWN snack. This is what happens when your seven year old tries to take a picture of mommy and Tessa...thanks for remaining on spot Tess! Hey big girl...off you go! And, as promised here is the newest addition to our family. We just adopted him from some people that bought a Labrador and I guess they didn't get along, you know, the whole, dog eat rabbit thing. His name is Oreo and he's 3 1/2 years old. Super sweet and LOVES that the kids want to cuddle him and hold him and squeeze him and love him forever. He does have a dry patch of skin I noticed, praying it's nothing more serious than fur mites that will go away once kitten wash is applied. He's a sweet guy.
