A New Leaf

Haylee turned over a new leaf last week.  

The (dreaded?) kindergarten leaf!!! 

I know, I know, so many of you have already sent your kiddos off to school but let me tell you it is soooo different when it's your kid!   Yes, I cried, a lot too.  But not until I got home.  I felt so silly about it.  It's not as if I don't want her to experience school and everything.  It's just that now I won't be the one teaching her everything and watching her make new discoveries.  She'll still have some with me, yes I know.  I mean, seriously, she's not even gone for 3 hours a day!   

After a little over a week though, I can honestly say that she has entered a whole new world of learning.  It's awesome to watch! I do miss her when she's gone!  But I love that she is just as excited as I am when I pick her up.  That softens the blow a bit.   I got to go with her on the first day, meet the teacher, see her cubby, all that jazz.  Afterwards, Haylee asked me when she would get to go all by herself!  The little independent stinker!

Not sure why I didn't take very many pics.  I think I may have been overcome with my conflicting emotions.  More likely, we were running late. :)

Yes, a hiatus...of sorts.  We have moved and that in and of itself is quite a life changing, big deal, routine destroying sort of thing.  So there's my excuse for not updating my blog.  Poor excuse because I'm really kicking's not as if blog worthy activities and events have stopped happening.  Quite the contrary.  But I'm also not sure I have it in me to try to catch up therefore overwhelming all my adoring readers.  There are some events, however, that are so very blog worthy that I feel I simply must include. For instance...

...this one

 turning 3!!!

With multiple birthday celebrations and "cakes"...

Have you ever seen these?  They are called cake pops.  Mine didn't turn out perfect, especially the faces, but they were fun to make and  eat.  This was "cake" # 2.
