yesterday we said goodbye to our beloved 14 year old dog Kayla. We adopted Kayla almost 12 years ago and she has been with us through the most joyous of times and weathered the tough times with us as well! This is Mia's first experience in dealing with the loss of a pet, so it has been difficult and sad in our home right now. We know that Kayla is at peace now and she is in a better place. RIP Kayla

1st day of Kindergarten was a success! Mia was such a BIG girl and proudly marched into class and forged forward without a second thought! Mike and I on the other hand had tear filled eyes and couldn't believe we were at this point! We were very impressed on how well and organized the school was amidst the large crowds
for the first day.

We asked her how her day was and her response was, " It was cool Mom, we learned a lot of rules today" Mia chose to have lunch in the cafeteria today and she was very excited to order an ice cream for dessert. Mia's journal from the teacher read,
"Mia is a delight in class and very enthusiastic! "

summer has ended and Mia is beginning kindergarten on Monday. I cannot believe how fast the time flies!! Yesterday was orientation and Mia met her teacher and classmates. We signed a gazillion forms, bought a spirit shirt, signed up for the PTA and dropped off her school supplies in her cubby. I think we are ready to go!!! Her backpack is ready, her uniforms are hanging in the closet and she can't wait to start school! We are enjoying our last weekend of summer and look forward to a great school year. . .
