Our Life in Pictures
It’s back to school time in Medfield and that means that unlike most of Massachusetts, all of the the Medfield kids have 3 days of school before Labor Day.
Owen was the lucky one and he didn’t start until the day after Labor Day
And, here’s one of us the day before school with their haircuts:
Although we haven’t moved yet, the kids are off to school in Medfield. Anna had her first day of 4th grade a few weeks ago and 6 days later was Will’s first day of Kindergarten.
No bus rides yet as Mom and Dad are driving them back and forth to school and activities.
Everything went well and they’re all settled in their new schools.
First Germany wins the World Cup and now we’re bringing German pretzels to my school’s International Night. If only Anna would stop thinking we’re Greek!
Off and Runnin’
The day after we got home from our vacation on Cape Cod (we were tired to post pictures), it was back to school for Anna. 5 days later, I started my new pre-school. Owen was the lucky one. All he had to do was pose for the pictures.
Thursday was the first day of 1st grade for Anna and my first day in the pre-school room at daycare.
Mom’s getting pretty tough in her old age because she didn’t shed a single tear (except for when I was crying because I didn’t want to go to my new room at daycare).
We had our end of year field trip to the Swan Boats this week. We had fun taking a bus into the Public Gardens, riding the swan boats, having a picnic lunch, and visiting the Make Way for Duckling statues!
My awesome teacher, Ms. Doughty. We didn’t know it at the time, but she was in labor during the field trip! We finished up the trip around 12:30 and headed back to school til 2:15. She dismissed us, then went to the doctor at 3, and had the baby at 4:30! A baby boy!
Here I am on Mrs. Mallard. The last time I visited the ducklings I was only about 8 months old and couldn’t even hold myself up. Also, my legs were a little, um, shorter:
And my big cousins were not quite so big!

Last week we had our holiday shows at school. Mom and Dad were in the cheap seats at both events, but even from way in the back, they could see me standing up front, frightened, gnawing on my fist instead of singing Frosty. My friends were equally confused/nervous/unsure of what to do. We wore it all over
our little faces.
Anna’s school had her show the following day. Anna’s class did the Reindeer Pokey and a song Mom and Dad didn’t know. See if you can pick her out – hints: she’s just about the tallest in her class, and she’s somewhere in the middle…
PS, then this weekend Anna (finally) had her final 6th birthday celebration. It was a gymnastics party and it was wild and crazy fun.
