First Grader

Yesterday was Mae’s first day of first grade — full-time! YES! (I’ll post up a photo later)… She had a good day – and when she came out she screamed, “I had the greatest day!”. Today, I dropped her off – helped her with her backpack and shoes — and she just turned and said, “See ya, Dad”.

Yeah – I’m feeling a little unneeded…

She’s just so cute.

Mae & her Pink Camera

I took my Nikon scanner in today to have it cleaned and calibrated at Nikon’s service center. They had some refurbed camera’s on display — Mae went nutty when she saw this one! A great buy for 40 bucks — she’s in heaven…

We’re back home after a great week in my hometown – Chicago. I think the girls had a great time – we pretty much completed everything on our list – and maybe a little more… It’s good to be home.

This is what happens when she eats Timbits.

Feeling a Little Warm

When she crawled into bed this morning she felt just a little warm – more like toasty. She has just one more dose of antibiotics, so I’m a little worried. We’re about to head up to the cottage for a week — and then off to Chicago after that – I want her healthy. Maybe we over did things on Monday — it was such a nice day – a nice cool day after oppressive heat. Hopefully she’ll feel better this afternoon when her sister comes home from cooking camp…

Mae was out of sorts for a few days. I thought maybe it was from being at summer camp all week (music and art camp from 9-4 each day), but when I took a look in her throat I knew something ominous was going on… So — off we went to the doctor — to find out she has strep throat. Fun.
