Needing some change and refocus time. Enter a major purge of "stuff", and possibly hair, and a week long break from Facebook to focus more on these people. 

And mr. Man and myself. 
And get caught up on housekeeping (hopefully. We'll see how the teething kid agrees with that)

First day of first grade

Mischief was still #48 on the academy wait list, so she's going to the local elementary school again. 
I'm reminded of how the Lord knows out thoughts and worries and I know he cares about Mischief to the point that oh it just so happens that her teacher who is new to the school this year is also gluten-free. And she's at least in her 40s and her classroom is the sort you see in vintage stories. She even made the wall around the door look like a red school house. 
So that makes it even sadder that I didn't get any dresses made for Mischief or have the opportunity to hunt up some classics. Instead she wore her new favorite shirt. See I realized recently that while she's my morbid dinosaur ninja lover, She's still a girly girl. So I took her to the mall and we hit up a good sale where she got to pick a weeks worth of shirts, a skirt and leggings and shoes. She likes pink and sparkly just as much as the others and LOVES butterflies. 

Anyway. I still need to figure out what the girls are taking for lunch tomorrow. Here is M on her first day this morning. 

Yep, it's teething (that's been the problem)

Beautiful blue eyes and a newly emerging tooth!

Growing up.

She sits. 
She crawls. 
She climbs. 
She pulls up. 
She survived her first set of vaccines. 
She is 6 1/2 months.

Fairy garden

We didn't plant a garden this year, so DQ made a fairy garden instead.

We went up to Logan this weekend. 
Many of Mr. Man's siblings came up too. The reason we all did was because his 2nd oldest sister 's first born was in the Martin Harris Pageant. 
Flower Pink looked ittybitty next to her younger cousin. 

We got pretty good seats for the pageant. 
Cool set. 

Note the storm clouds all around. My Aunt and Uncle were there the same night as well. Drama Queen adores this Uncle now that she realized she can be crazy silly with him. 
I loved all the costumes. And that's as much of the pageant as we enjoyed because it started pouring rain and we ran for the car. The rain got heavier so we went back to Mr. Man's parents house. 
Flower Pink enjoying some applesauce. 
Mischief enjoying some toys alone. 

This kid likes pretending she isn't tired then passing out on the floor. 
She and I had a rough Saturday after sleeping very poorly Friday night. 

The end.
