Frame-A-Day Week 35: 8/27-9/2

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.


  1. Wow, what a great week you had, lovely photos.
