Hannah’s First Day of School

Yesterday was Hannah’s first day of “real” school!
~ August 24, 2010 ~
She entered kindergarten at Adams Elementary School.

Hannah rode her bike back and forth and did great.
She is in the morning group and just loved it all so much!
Hannah is such a friendly and cheerful little girl, she’ll do so well.

Hannah sure likes her new teacher, but had a bit
of a hard time remembering Mrs. Garrido’s name at first.
She met some new friends and saw old friends too!

I’m the lucky Grandma who got a first hand account last night on
the telephone, with all the details . . . including the snacks!

Hannah even got homework the first day.
Gotta have something to put in her new backpack!

Happy 40th Birthday DaveO

Outward Bound


By the time you read this entry I will be up in the air on my way to Utah.
My grandkids await their Grandma, and most especially her suitcases full o’ fun!

This (year old) picture will give you an idea of the cuties that are awaiting my arrival.
Do you think I will see changes in (L-R) Emily, Hannah and baby Lee?
No doubt about it!

I have scheduled a few posts in advance and will try to do live ones as well,
however no promises as I will be out on adventures with some very cute kids.

Thanks to Southwest Airlines
and their cheap flights and great perks
I am going to Salt Lake City, Logan,
then St. George, Grand Canyon, Arizona
and will fly home from Las Vegas mid-June!
