T e n + O n e =

Lizzie is Eleven!
We had a small birthday bash...a couple friends spent the night. Pink and orange (currently Elizabeth's favorite color combo) was the theme this year. I even attempted a fondant cake! Not nearly as cool as I wanted - too many cracks...but my adoring daughter loved it....kids are so good for the ego. :)

Elizabeth Nicodemus, Grade 5

Miss Elizabeth started 5th grade
at Kent Prarie Elementary School today.

Yes, I shed a tear as the bus drove away this morning. Every September it hits home that my baby is growing up. Every September, I load my baby onto a bus and watch it drive off to a world that is hers to navigate without me (for the most part). Every September I hope and pray that she finds a good place in her world and will have a year filled with the joy of learning and the joy of friendship. And, every September, I realize it's nice to be alone to get my work done, but it's nicer to have my summertime pal around to distract me.

September Sunday

Me, Elizabeth and Meagan (Elizabeth's friend from age 3) took some time off yesterday! After church, we finished up our school supply shopping @ the new Office Depot (Arlington is getting to be quite the shopping mecca!), got hot dogs at Costco and headed for the lake! Took a "nap" under a tree... Admired the beginning of fall.... Rolled down a hill....... Rough-housed a bit....

And hammed it up for the camera....

Hope you had a great Sunday too!
