What happened to Monday?

Where is time going? I don't know if it is just moving faster or actually taking leaps ahead these days. Enough prattle, got lots to report.

First of all, the new challenge is up at ScrapTiffany. This week's challenge is to use something hideous from your stash that you can't believe you purchased. The explanation of what I used and why I purchased it is here so I am not going to recount it again, but this is my layout. Go on over and take a look at the amazing projects everyone created with product that they considered to be less than delightful. And don't forget to take the challenge and send an image or scan to Tiffany HERE for your chance to be entered in a drawing for a free kit.

Next, I can't believe I missed blogging yesterday because one member of our family had a really big day. Little Miss had her first day of Pre-K. She is still at the same school, but she moved up to a new room and will remain there for the next year until she starts kindergarten. Let me just take a minute to stop my head from spinning.

She was super excited about her big day. We got up early, she picked out her outfit and hairstyle and we ate breakfast. All was dandy until we set foot in the new classroom. She didn't cry or even tear up but the excitement dissipated fast and I had a hard time getting a real smile out of her.

By some stroke of luck, her teacher from the last room also moved into this new space, so she has some continuity. Also many of her friends are starting Pre K with her. The room itself is huge and when I picked her up after lunch her teacher told me she had a great first day exploring all the new toys and that she is the best counter in the class! (She does not get her math skills from me LOL!)

I just can't believe how far she has come. When we started preschool she was 2 1/2 and cried just about every morning I dropped her off. All in all we are so proud of her and hope that her excitement for school continues to grow.

Her little brother didn't start anything new yesterday, but he looked so cute coming along for the ride, I couldn't help but include a picture of him in his car seat.
