A note from the writers

Blogger seems to be having some trouble with its videos. They've been uploaded correctly and will run sometimes. If you can't see them now, come back another time and try again. It's totally a game of chance to get them to run. If anyone out there has a fix, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

First Day of School

Last night, as Matt and I put Ava to bed, we realized that today was a really momentous day.  Today, Ava started full-time daycare at Bright Horizons.  From now on, until she graduates high school and leaves our little nest (wherever in the world that nest is), she'll be going to school all day Monday-Friday.  

On the one hand, it's exciting to see your kid grow up and know that she's totally ready for this next little step on her road.  On the other, of course, you never get to go back.

So, here they are, Ava's first first-day-of-school pictures.

**Update:  Her day went great.  She cried when I left, of course, but then her teachers said she had a really good day.  She'll be exhausted by the end of the week learning the new nap routine and by playing so hard, but she's doing great!  :-)

What a grown up little girl! The skirt is so cute, Sally. She looks ready to take on the world!

She couldn't be any cuter! Hang in there - it gets easier to deal with them being gone at school! ;)

Sarah and I were wondering how she did yesterday, so thanks for the update. Big day for everyone.

It does get easier leaving them. Benjamin is in a 2 day program and it was tough the first few times but now he asks to go. Our little ones are growing up so fast!

do they let you use the cloth there? I have to put Ben in Disposables those 2 days he's at school.

Love her outfit! Bet she was super excited to see you when you picked her up! How's she doing at naptime?
