I feel all sorts of juxtaposed. Summer, fall, summer...fall? Tonight was a neighborhood block party, and despite being hot, hot, hot and at a "summer" event, I keep forgetting that school is in session (that reminds me, I need to pack R's lunch for tomorrow!).
The last few weeks have been full of fun things. For instance, we finally got around to visiting the Santa Maria (C. Columbus' ship, here in Columbus). While, of course, not a pirate ship, G was not going to be told otherwise. If you ever have the chance to visit the Santa Maria, I highly recommend it:
Then, right before school started, R "graduated" from COSI's Little Kid Space. I am not sure he knows yet that next time we go, while G runs around COSI's ginormous play area, he will be scorted to the Big Kid Hang-out room, but the graduation was a hoot and lots of fun:
After graduation, R started 1st grade, which so far, he loves:
I am hoping 1st grade includes a lesson on fashion since I fear R may have inherited his late Great Great Uncle Bob's sense of style:
If left to his own devices, the above is what R would have chosen to wear on his 1st day of 1st grade...quite the 1st impression, eh?
I'm off to pack R's lunch. I've been bantering around with some friends on FB for more school lunch ideas. I think a post is in the works...
