first day of school

Today was our first day of school. It went great. We had a short workday today just because that's what the curriculum said to do. LOL After school, we went to the park to get a first day picture. I took about 20 but these two are my favorite.

Tonight was our Back To School Ice Cream party with our homeschool group. Many of my favorite people were MIA - I hope they are rejoining the group this year. My friend, Denise Hill, went with me. I'm hoping she'll join. I think she might.

Here's a funny picture I took last week. We were so low on groceries and I didn't have time to go to the store. I finally went the next day. Check out my refrigerator! Can you believe it?

Hope your week is off to a good start!

Great pics of Caroline!

Hooray for the first day of school!

I suppose if that's all I had in my fridge I'd weigh about 10 pounds.
Maybe I should go on the water and butter diet. Hee hee.

Ha, ha! Funny pic of that empty refridge. Very funny indeed! LOL

Caroline is adorable as always. So glad she is feeling better than she has been. :-)

You asked about the crafts below -- was thinking you should google "elementary kids crafts" and see what comes up. I've done it before and found TONS of cute and inexpensive things to do for art and such. Most of the ones I found used things like empty milk jugs (well washed out), or clean coffee cans, etc. -- you just never know what kewlness awaits in googleland. LOL

Hey, I had fun at the group meeting. I think I'm going to join. :-)
