First tooth

PTali lost her first tooth at school today.  It has been loose for about two weeks now and fell out while she was in class.  However as her sister did she does not want to give it up so the tooth fairy has not made a visit.

In this photo you can see her adult tooth coming in behind her baby teeth - it will be interesting to see how this turns out!

First day of school

The new backpacks were packed school supplies, lunches, hand sanitizer and other doo dads.  It was a very rainy and humid morning but the girls were ready.

They decorated their signs with their names and a picture.  Their aspirations on this day are to be a babysitter (Taryn) and a pilot (Tali).  

In the classroom Taryn is sitting in a configuration of five students including one of her good friends.  Tali is sitting closest to the door in a configuration of four students with two boys that she mentions often during conversations about school. 


I managed to flex my work schedule so I was able to be there at dismissal (it was a full day for the first day).  They played with their friends and then quickly took off their jumpers leaving only their shirts and shorts on so we went for ice cream at aunt Diana's. 

It is only August so we will try to cram in a few more summer like weekends in New Buffalo however the fact that school resumes on Monday will be lingering in our minds as we try to enforce a regular bedtime and routine.

Trip to the zoo

Haven't been there in over a year I think. The girls had a great time and there is definitely something to be said for walking around without a stroller or a bag of snacks!  


Growth chart 8-10

I realize I should have been taking a photo each time we did a measurement but I did not.  At least I have this one.

Happy birthday Tali

You are six and when I look back at the past year of your life I hope to remember the following about you:

1.  You are the milky girl and still drinking milk when you wake up and before you go to bed (and belly button too).
2.  You give the biggest bear hugs around.
3.  You wake up with a smile on your face and ready for the day.  You have an enthusiasm for life that is unbelievable and it shows.
4.  Gymnastics and sporty attire is what you love.  No dresses for you!
5.  Your reading skills are starting but what you are really good at is remembering details and places.  
6.  You have a few good friends but you also are perfectly happy to be at home (and watching TV or spending time by yourself or with Taryn).
7.  You have a way with words even when you come into our room in the middle of the night because "I just want to be close to you."
8.  You chose to have your party at home this year with a bounce house, pizza and an outdoor movie.  You picked the guest list and the cake.  
9.  You love good quality chocolate.

When I grow up...

Tali currently has her mind set on being a pilot, I think she has a love for travel as long as she is with family. 

Taryn is a undecided but if I had to guess I think it would be a veterinarian, she loves animals...guinea pigs, dogs, cats and horses.
