First Day of School

And just like that, the first day of school came and went. Our big boy Conlan started 2nd grade. He went right in without a glance back. Yes, Mommy was sad! According to the Con man it was a great day and he has 3 cute girls in his class. Does it really start this early? We are very excited to have the school so close to our house. No more commutes to school, yay!

Where did that baby face go? Sniff, sniff....

Back to School Celebration

Our back to school celebration this year took on a Medieval theme. Sienna, Tristan and Conlan were all starting school again and this year cousin Caydon will be starting kindergarten this year. Everyone came dressed up and we had some fun games and activities for the kids. We started off the celebration with everyone pulling a sword from the stone and getting their "new" name. Some of the names were: Sir Laughs a Lot, Princess Drool, Lady Ga Ga of Dyva. Then we rescued the damsel in distress from the fire breathing dragon. The kids launched marshmallows with a catapult. Then we had everyone visit the falconry and make origami birds. Then we went on a search for the holy grail and everyone got a goblet to decorate with jewels. Feasting and merriment commenced over lunch and we completed the day with a dragon cake. Whew...what a day!
