We loaded the car and drove down the street for Josette's 1st day of 2nd grade at Tulita. She was very excited and nervous. Her new teacher is Mrs. Millinder. Josette has excelled in school since her first year of preschool and I know this year will be terrific! It's just the 1st day and we are so proud. She is a GREAT example for her sisters to follow. Have a wonderful year Josette!!!!
It's our last day of summer vacay before Josette goes back to school tomorrow, so we decided to have a teddy bear picnic in the back yard. The weather was perfect, the food was good and the girls enjoyed a lazy day of fun in the sun. This summer was a short one, but very exciting with the arrival of our new baby and a quick trip to Delaware. My 2nd grader and 2 pre-schoolers will soon be getting back into the routine of getting out the door early, ready for school. Luckily they're all excited! Let's hope that enthusiasm stays throughout their learning years.
The girls stayed the night with Ginny and Gene. Jeff and I and Van enjoyed a quiet dinner at the Riviera. That is while taking phone calls from the girls. They've learned how to speed dial our number on Gene's phone. The girls LOVE slumber parties with their Grandparents and it's SO nice to wake up to a quiet house... once in a while!
Aunt Ann, Uncle Mark and the Girls came down to meet Baby Van. We haven't seen them in a while so it was such a treat to spend time with Carrie, Krista, Constance and Claire. The girls are growing up so fast and starting school this week. We had a picnic at the Malaga Cove Library and had a wonderful time catching up.
Jeff received the unfortunate news that his Grandmother, Margaret Walls, passed away in Delaware and decided to fly back with the girls to attend her services. They all, along with Ginny, left on a Monday and arrived to Lewes just in time. They stayed with Aunt Christy and spent the week visiting and catching up with family. The girls met Jeff's Uncle Buddy and Uncle Warren and his family. They spent time on the farm, running around on the beach and a fun filled night at FUNLAND. The girls were thrilled to see and play with cousins Abby and Shelby. The week flew by with not enough time to do and see everything. They had a great time! Van and I stayed back and enjoyed some quiet time and a quick overnight stay with Sherry. All of a sudden it was Sunday and I was driving to the airport to pick them up.
