Okay, where has September gone? School is in full swing and PTA meetings are already fundraising up a storm. Pumpkin everything has hit the market. The fall season is exhilarating, full of activites, and a feast for the senses.
Fall makes me think of family. Speaking of family, we have some pretty special sisters/ aunts in our family. Aunt Carrie, Aunt Delisa and Aunt Jessica-- all three sent gifts for back to school! And, boy, are we grateful!

And of course we had to have a fashion show of the fun back-to-school ensembles. As it is still (just barely) September, I thought I would share (finally!).
Dear family who live so many thousands of miles away, I love you. I miss you dearly. Thanks for thinking of me and getting me all set up for kindergarten. I love the new outfits.
Fluffy, frilly princess ballet skirts, skirts, skirts! I can see why they are so popular.

We put the hair accessories from Nan to good use. The fun beads and flowers make every outfit special.

A Daddy moment.
Prepping for ballet.
First day of school--cuteness and jitters.
Music and snacks. Katie has been asking for a violin (especially since Mommy plays) for a while now. She was ecstatic to hold it in her hands for the first time.
And for a fun treat...
What will you put in your snack tray?
Peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal bars. I'm not sorry we made these. And with protein from the peanut butter it's almost health food. Ha.
All set for school.
