Simple Pleasures

I remember doing this as a kid. Hudson's buddies were over yesterday, and it was so much fun to watch them enjoy the same activity I loved as a kid. Although, their creations became lassos and snakes and whips, rather than necklaces, of course ;) 

The last few days of summer vacation are here. We're trying to get everything in order before the big day. Kindergarden starts on Monday. He's so excited, but I did get a little misty-eyed today as we walked into his classroom to meet his teacher. Can't believe he's this big. 

Hope I can hold it together as I drop him off on Monday. Why, oh why do I have to be pregnant every time he starts a new school? The tears are on the brink at all times. It's not fair that I was the blubbering idiot on the first day of preschool; and now I'm headed in the same direction for Kindergarden. I blame pregnancy. Because if I weren't pregnant, I'd totally hold it together. Right?


Oh, and if you've got a picky eater on your hands like I do, hop over to good tots today for my updated placemat download.

Have a great day!

Hello Christina:

What beautiful recollections and what colouring moments: the necklaces, the caterpillar, the silhouettes ... and even (and from off) the racoons ... (I prefer running up with Perry!!... It is called Billy the exterminator). ja,ja

Luck.
