Anyway, whether we are ready or not, here it comes! Here's to a great year!

It's Monday afternoon, I'm sitting in the sun while the girls play and I'm thinking about the year ahead. The year that starts with Sammy starting school tomorrow and Presley starting the following day. I won't lie...there were moments this summer (mostly in the past couple of weeks) where I wished for this moment. And, of course, now that it's here...well, I don't feel ready. We had a whirlwind of a summer, full of great times. Despite the fact that we all seem to thrive on routine and schedules, I can't help but wish we had just a bit more time. If I had to sum it all up in one word, it would be bittersweet. The girls are thrilled to be starting school. Sammy has nothing but excitement for tomorrow while Presley is more reserved. I really don't know how she will handle the separation. Once I'm gone, she will be fine. But peeling her hand from mine and walking away will be so hard. In some ways, I can't wait for this month to be over, so we are at the point where we are all comfortable with our new roles and routines.

I'm so SO guilty of relying on my phone to snap pictures of the girls. Since the beginning of the year, I have taken out my DSLR maybe a dozen times. And a chunk of those were for last day of school and birthday pictures. I'd like to take it out more...perhaps a goal in the New Year but I hesitate because it's just so darn easy to use my phone that is usually with me. Anyway, one of Sammy's school supplies is a picture of herself so that was a good excuse to get out the real camera. Of course Presley had to get in on the action, too. This was after their haircuts (totally unnoticeable!).

I can't believe 7 years has gone by. It really doesn't seem like that long. Time flies when you're having fun, right?! I really do feel lucky. I have such an amazing husband who is dedicated, caring, funny, intelligent, fit, hard working, etc, etc, (I could go on and on but I shouldn't brag too much!). We have spent the last 11 years together and I haven't regretted a thing (except that we haven't won the lottery and aren't celebrating our anniversary in Paris!). I feel like our marriage gets better over time and I am happy we found each other.

This has not been my favourite week. Cat barfs, rough nights with the girls, a near electrocution, crummy weather and barf duty with this one:

We rarely have cereal in the house. We don't eat it for breakfast so it's not something we buy. The other day, I decided, why the heck not. I let the girls choose any cereal they wanted. I did this about a year ago and the prime choice was Raisin Bran which really cracked me up. This time was different!
