                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Who knew the first week back to school would be so rough??  Being good at early mornings, letting go of 5 year olds, and getting back into routine are not what one would say I'm particularly skilled at. And with Alex conveniently in California all week, I say "Welcome Friday, I'm so glad you are here and there is no school today or Monday!  Hooray!!!"
We said goodbye to Summer Vacation at Lake Erie
Had Pinterest success
          making memories during backyard camp outs
Trading donut dates for donut earrings. What? You didn't know they boost confidence for kindergarten?
Too many emotions for one school post
Didn't I just bring her home from the hospital??
Day one went a little like this:
Me- Addison, did you have fun at school?
Addison- No. I'm never, ever, ever, ever going back
So of course I was left with no other choice but to make her a cake & bribe her to go back.
She ate cake.
Climbed into my lap.
Cried her her eyes out.
"I don't want to get used to kindergarten. Why can't I just be with my mommy?"
Effectively shreading my heart into a million pieces.
All I have to say is, Alex better get his hieney home from California because I need a hug.
So how was your week?! :)
life rearranged


  1. Oh Mari how sweet! You're such a good mom. Glad to call you friend!

  2. This is so sweet! I'm a believer in chocolate cake :)
    Good luck to your girls! I also didn't like school when I first started, but eventually I made friends and loved learning and now I'm in college so I think I got used to it haha

  3. Great pictures! I hope your little one had a better second day at school. :( You're such a sweet mom to bake her a cake!
