First Day of Kindergarten

Ellie was just a little bit excited :)
Brother had no idea what was going on....
Don't want to be late on the first day. That is a serious look of concentration!
There is no turning back....

This was a big day in our family. We officially entered the world of elementary school and the crazy life that it entails.... homework, play dates, extracurricular activities galore. Ellie is happy and enjoying life in kindergarten.

As for me, I had a lot of mixed emotions on the first day of school. I was nervous and excited for the Little Miss. No tears here but I was stilled surprised by the amount of emotion this milestone stirred up.

The Fair

We made it to the fair this year. Oh..... and we had fun :)
Ellie milking the cow
Hard at work
Tommy checking out the cows. He mooed at them and they responded accordingly.
The highlight of Ellie's day. Yes the cotton candy was almost as tall is she is :)
Tommy got a kick out of the bunny.
And he wanted to take a ride on the sheep. He made a big fuss when we left the petting zoo. He couldn't get enough of those furry animals.
I have a new appreciation for Fern. Wilbur is as cute as she said he was.
Just watching Ellie go around and around on this ride made me sick.

We had a fun family day and will definitely return to the fair again!
