Welcome to our adventures. I try as best as I can to document the happenings here in our family - everything from the shenanigans to the spiritual, from the kid to the kitchen, from the cat to the catastrophes. We believe that adventure can be found in everything we do...even in the mundane tasks of the day. When we set our minds on things above in gratitude to God, we find the strength to approach life with a sense of purpose & adventure. The adventure may not always be what we have planned...but isn't that what adventure is all about?

Time flies....

(L-R Pre-School and Jr. Kindergarten)

(L-R Kindergarten and 1st Grade)

(2nd Grade)

My little baby is a 2nd grader....I can't even believe it.    Before I had a child of my own, I used to poke fun at parents who would talk about their kids growing up so fast and be all emotional about it.   "Ugh", I used to think...I'm sure with a little rolling of the eyes.     But here I am....my kid is growing up so fast.   And I'm emotional.    Ugh.   Sigh.

So today we had the annual 1st day of school photo shoot....the one where I make her wear the "Care Bear" backpack that she wore on her first day of preschool.   The first few shots she's all into it....and then she's over it.   I promise only a few more pictures, and of course, we have to get a shot with the real backpack...the one that's probably too big for her.

Yeah...that one.

Ok...c'mon, just a few more...

"Really, Mom?"

I love my 2nd grader....she is already smarter than me too.

Hope you're all enjoying your first day of school, or whatever it is that is going on in your life....

Peace out.

She looks so grown! I can't believe 2nd grade. Didn't she just start kindergarten? Aww!
