Rejoining the blogosphere

I am trying to come up for a breath. The beginning of this school year has been soooooo unbelievably busy. I have just had to let some things go like housework (let's face it, it never was a top priority for me) and blogging (this I have missed). I feel like I am breaking the surface and hopefully can be more consistent! So without further ado...the pictures...
Lily Wen's REAL first day of school. She did great and I survived!

Lily Wen and Lily in the shirts that Lily bought for them. These girls love each other. I was told by Lily Wen's teacher that they seek each other out at breaks.

Then, Lily Wen had to dress through the decades for school. First was the 40's, I had left my camera at a friends and missed that day. Oops! For the 50's, the picture was taken at the end of the day after the return of my camera. Thank goodness her Halloween costume from last year still fits.
Ahhh, the 60's Peace and Love
My 70's girl. This was Lily Wen's favorite outfit.
Last but certainly not least, the 80's. Lily Wen went with the "rocker 80's" look complete with Big Hair. It was fun to drop her off. I noticed all the kids who were dressed in a preppy style with side ponytails and then there was my girl. My Rocker!

Great outfit! She looks like she had a tone of fun. My favorite is peace and love with little brother. Hope this is the start of a great school year!

Oh my goodness Margaret, that is waaaay too cute! Nothing like a few extra outfits to throw together when you feel like you can't catch up to yourself, right? You did great! Love Lily Wen's escort too. Does the boy smile in his sleep? I'm thinking, yes. :)

Teddi wore the 70's dress for her first day of school. Love it!

So happy that you are back!

Great pics! I just love the big bows that Lily is always sporting in her hair. So sweet about the way they scout each other out. My two oldest were like that in daycare. Melts my heart!

Those pictures are too cute. I must say my blogging has suffered too lately. Life has been too busy so something has too be neglected. Take care and hang in there.
