First day of first grade!

Kisses for encouragement.

We had an extremely easy drop off, it was nice that it was simple for everyone, and Grace had a fantastic first day. Yay!

We dropped off some forms at Suki and Kate's preschool. The director was there and showed us around at the girls' classrooms again -- there was a different feel for them knowing this was definitely where they were going to go next week. We even got to meet Suki's teachers, who were very sweet. Afterward, we enjoyed some time on the playground.

Perfect for playing Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf.

Reading together at the end of a busy, busy day.

Grace's first day of school was canceled today because power lines are still down after Hurricane Irene and it wasn't safe for walkers to get to school. Gracyn and her family invited us to the beach, so we headed off to Nahant to enjoy one last day at the beach.

As usual, Grace could not be persuaded to leave the ocean.

She'd run out and then right back in, to splash and sit and enjoy the waves.

It was a sweet, fun time.
