I set my alarm this morning in a valiant effort to get us dressed and out the door before school actually started. It worked! I even showered before breakfast. Hey, that's something to be proud of around here. The girls were to school earlier than ever before. Of course, I was up until way too late last night getting prepped for this morning (coffee, breakfast dishes out and ready), but it's such a good feeling to have been on time to something.

I fooled them today. It's a holiday. Sleep in all you want, my darlings!

A certain photo company has changed their online viewing process. I was all excited this afternoon with the thought of posting some of the pictures we got today on the blog, and then I went to copy and paste them and found out I couldn't do it! Thanks to
my fabulous sneaky husband the resident geek, we have solved the problem. Don't tell anyone. I'll post more pictures tomorrow if you're good.
Later, after we were done with photo torture, we took the children to McDonald's, where Claire ate her apples dipped in ketchup. Last time she dipped them in sweet and sour sauce. She loves her dip.
Tomorrow night we're headed to an open house at a possible private school for Kate next year. Seriously. I can't believe we're thinking about putting her in private Kindergarten. I'm all stressed out about whether to keep her in her current private school or send her to public school. Mostly I take issue with the length of class at the public school: it's only 2 1/2 hours a day! She goes to pre-k for 3 1/2 hours this year. I had no idea figuring out Kindergarten would be so complicated and stressful. And expensive! I practically need a job just to pay for it!

He isn't walking yet, but is tottering around behind his push-toys by himself. He is also gaining a better sense of balance and is close to riding Rody by himself.
Kate and Claire are back in the swing of things, enjoying school and expanding their amazing imaginations. Kate talks approximately 98% of the minutes she is awake, leaving us all a little bewildered. She and I need to have a little chat about personal information, as I have heard her several times tell strangers the dates of birth of her whole family, and she has even shared our address with people in line at Target. Everyone knows how old I am, and that her father is "older than dirt". As for Claire, she is super excited about turning 3 at the end of the month. She is also insisting on panda cupcakes again. She likes what she likes. But she's branching out, too, as she showed us tonight at dinner by eating a leaf of lettuce and a pickle (both of which she claimed to detest before this).
