Keeping Ben busy

It has been fun having only Ben around during the day - of course I miss my girl like crazy while she is at school - but, finding things to keep him busy while I get a few things done has proven to be difficult. Alexa found her old Halloween costume the other day and left it out. Well, let's just let the picture speak for itself. What do you do with your toddler's while you need a few minutes to change the laundry over to the dryer, clean up the lunch mess or even run to the bathroom?

Alexa's First Day of School

Today was Alexa's first day of Kindergarten and we marked the occasion with the famous "First Day of School" picture. She is such a brave girl! She was so excited to wear her uniform and her knee socks, which I will add she looks so adorable and grown-up in, and head off to the school. She was only hesitant for a second when we turned the corner and she saw a gym full of kids. Her teacher quickly came over and directed her where to go. She sat down quietly in line and waited instruction. I watch for a few minutes and then I just couldn't take it any longer - I turned around with tears in my eyes. Why is so hard to see your baby grow up! Here is my "First day of school" picture. I am sure that many of yours were the same.

Have a great day! (I say between the sobs!)
