Back To School

Will, Evan and Lily Clare's first day of 3s Preschool.  Same scene as last year, the first few photos I snapped Lily was standing patiently, by the time the boys looked up she was getting restless.

I asked this cutie what she wanted her teacher and friends at school to call her several times over the last few weeks. Each time she said 'Lily Clare', so I enrolled her with her middle name this year at her new school.

This was Lily Cat the night before school started, she decided to draw wiskers on her face with a permanent marker.  Thank goodess a little make up remover was all it took to take it off.  Lily agreed that the teacher would probably say, "No cats allowed at school!'.

Pirate Memo, already feeling inspired after one day of school to 'get creative'.  He is usually a bit reluctant to draw and will say 'you do it for me' so I was happy that he was enjoying the window markers. Barely a widow in the house escaped his art and today he brought home a drawing from school.

Holden's first day of school was today. He was all smiles.  Yesterday was a bit rough for him, with everyone going off to school without him.  The trips will be going three days a week, and Holden will be going two days.

Proud little guy with his backpack on.  No tears at drop off, although about a third of his class was pretty distraught.  At pick up he told David 'I had a fun day!'

How was your first week? Any tears for you or your kids?

Fashion Week Awards Afterparty

We offered our office space to host the Fashion Week Awards afterparty.  I snapped a few random photos.  Later discovering this photo included project runway star and her photographer, children's vampire book author, unknown partygoer and my coworker Lea at Lea's desk.

Check out this fun video my co-workers made.  Those are my colleagues in the 'dance train'.

Summer Camp Ice Cream Cake Dance

Ah, to be three and in summer camp. Lily was having a blast dancing to Ice Cream Cake on 'Pajama Day'. She must get her dancing skills from her dad.  You can hear Evan in the background, he was more interested in confiscating my camera..
