1. Alaina's first day of Kindergarten has come and gone. It was a completely tear-free day. She didn't cry. Mom didn't cry. And most surprisingly of all, Joya didn't cry. We all thought that Joya would be the inconsolable one. Lee mentioned how he thought our parenting style could be labelled "A Journey to Independence" and that was most evident in Alaina's first day. She was ready. We were prepared to send her. And so it went smoothly. She said she was a little shy as I got her settled at her spot at the table, and I told her that was okay. That it's always a good idea to sit back and watch for awhile before jumping into things. So that's what she did.
3. Alaina has to wear uniforms to school, which basically consist of a solid colored polo and khaki or navy pants/shorts/skooters. She thinks it's awesome that she wears polos like Daddy, and instructs him on which color to wear to match her if she can. Which meant that on Wednesday they both got to wear red polos.

5. Six months old also means food time! Bria's been getting used to rice cereal this week, and she finally enjoys having mushy stuff in her mouth. Which means that I will be adding Making Baby Food to my list of things to do throughout the week. I think I'll start her on sweet potato. Or butternut squash. I can't decide.
6. In other news, we had a wicked storm last night. It has really been the first and only storm of the summer. And it was CRAZY. Apparently Alaina's school experienced some flood damage, so today is a Flood Day (instead of a Snow Day.) Classes were cancelled so a crew could get in a clean and dry the place out. Alaina wasn't exactly happy about the unexpected day off. "School is NOT boring, Mom!" Oh, that she could feel this way about school every day for the next 13 years.
