17 Months and First Week of School!

Grey's first day of school!

"Momma, I'm a big girl! I can do this!"

Blowing kisses

Grey's first day of school was a bit full of tears (for both of us).  She has a great teacher though, so I know it will only get better each day.  She attends Trinity Learning Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays so I can teach the Jumpstart Reading program there. 
We are getting into a good routine of being a LOT more organized in the morning.  I get up at 5:00 and shower before Grey wakes up.  That way we have time to play, read, drink coffee (me) and pack a lunch before we drive to TLC at 7:30.  Chet is always gone very early, so I sadly I don't think he will ever get to drop Grey off at school.  

Such a HELPER lately!  She wants to do everything I do!

17 months - after a day of school

Grey's second day of school (Thursday) was a little better.  She still needs some adjusting, but she was so happy when we picked her up that she didn't even want to go home! :)  

On Friday I took my real camera to the park to get some 17 month photos of Grey, but I realized I couldn't figure out the focus buttons we had changed when the cousins were in.  My sister in law Charity is a photographer, and she offered to change them back to the "old" way, but because I clearly over-estimated my skills, I told her she didn't need to.  So much for the photo shoot...
But I did get some sweet (dark lighting) ones and a couple blurry ones to share. ;)
End of story.

Hammin' it up!

She is getting TALL!


We have enjoyed a rare family weekend this weekend.  I am so grateful for the rest and time together.  Chet and I even went on a date last night!!  (Thank you Carrie for keeping G!)  Such a beautiful end to summer.

Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.  Psalm 119:165
