Ever since I've had my kids, when I see week "X", I think pregnancy. This week is especially poignant to me, as both Trust and Earnest were born during week 35 of my pregnancy. This project, however, will take a bit longer to complete...sort of like a pregnancy and a half in my world for my older two.
OK, so what do we have for Week 35?
August 27--Happy Birthday, Grampy--We all celebrated Grampy's birthday a bit early today, with dinner at a local pizza place. Here we see Trust sharing the card she made for him and giving him a birthday hug.
August 28--Come On, Irene--Hurricane Irene hit our street with a vengeance. Thankfully, this isn't our house, but our neighbors' three doors down. We did a double take as we drove by and snapped this photo. Luckily, there was no damage to the house.
August 29--T Minus One and Counting--Tomorrow is the big day! It's the first day of grades 1-12 as well as kindergarten orientation. Unlike his sister, who treats the first day of school as a Christmas equivalent, Earnest says he's scared. Here's to hoping that the orientation will help calm his nerves for his first full day on Wednesday.
August 30--First Day of School--The traditional pose of the kids on the front steps the first day of school.
August 31--First (Real) Day of K--Rather than just drop Earnest off at the driveway for his first official day, I parked across the street and we all walked over to the school. It all went off without a hitch, save a few quick tears (surprisingly from me, not Earnest).
*September 1--Author! Author!--After school today, Trust and Earnest were making books. I wonder if Trust's passion for writing and drawing is going to rub off on her brother.
September 2--Flying High--The kids had fun in the backyard before dinner. Both Trust and Earnest made a decent attempt at reaching for the sky.
