First Day of School

Today is the first day of school. We are going to a new school to be by Gigi and Daddy. Yesterday we went to meet our teachers and take our school supplies. We are excited. We will take a 3 minute bus ride from our new school to Gigi's gym. She will be outside on the sidewalk waiting for her blonde headed girls. Astrid has been in the field picking wildflowers for her teacher and Ingrid is picking the surprise lillies out of the yard. I stayed up late and got up early for making Helen's cinnamon ring. Surely we will be the favored students....right Helen?

I will post first day of school pics later.

Ingrid's back to school party

Ingrid got to meet her teacher last night. She seems very nice and very intelligent. This will be good as Ingrid was smarter than her teacher last year. She made friends with a pretty red headed girl named Olivia. She is in the top pic with Ingrid. She also made an enemy in the little boy with the water gun. He wouldn't leave her alone so finally she smacked him right upside the head. I don't think he learned his lesson.
I will post pictures of my other girls next!!

Today's Ingridism

We were standing in the living room looking out the window at her Daddy mowing the lawn.
Ingrid: Mom do you like Daddy?
Me: yes Ingrid I like your Daddy...I wouldn't have married him if I didn't.
Long pause
Ingrid: Mom this may sound stupid but do you know that some people marry people just because they have a lot of money.
Long pause
Ingrid: I hope I don't do that....I hope Astrid and Sigrid don't do that either.
