Trisa, whose picture I couldn't take since she's away at college, seemed to enjoy her first day of classes and had a couple of fun stories to tell me about. She liked todays class too.
Tia, whose picture I just didn't think to take didn't go on Monday but did go today and will go through Saturday like she has the rest of the summer. We did figure out today that if she could get the rest of her stamps done (she gets stamps for the things she does) she should be able to finish by about Thanksgiving. So, anyone close by please go and get your hair cut, or nails done, or eyebrows waxed, or a pedicure, or something. She is looking forward to being finished with cosmetology school.
Kayli had her first day of high school. It was a good day with people she knew in every class. She didn't even have to ride the bus since her friend's brother gave them a ride. Kayli said that she freaked out a bit when she first walked in, but it turned out well and you can see that she looked lovely.

I don't have a picture of Dan because his first day is on his birthday on Monday. He did have Kindergarten assessment. I sat and wrote down the funny things he said.
Dan: "I can breathe!"
Teacher: "You can read?"
Dan: "No. I can breathe, but not in water. In the hot tub I sometimes fall in the water" I think he proceded to demonstrate and she probably thinks we have a hot tub now since he didn't mention it's the hot tub he gets in maybe once a year at his Aunt Jenny's house.
Teacher: Can you tell me the first sound in snake?
Dan: No thanks. I need a drink. (And then he went to get one).
He did really well at a lot of the test but I thought it was telling when he said "I forgot what the t.v. said about that." He got most of his great knowledge from the television. I love leap frog videos. They make me look like a great Mom. Dan was angry that we had to leave after his test. He wanted to stay there and play. A little school shopping cheered him up a bit. What's not to like about new clothes and a new Toy Story backpack?
