Both children have officially started school! I was feeling nostalgic all day yesterday as Harris goes into his last year of grammar school and Grace starts her last year of middle school. It's so incredibly cliche but man are these years flying by! When they were little it felt as if we had all the time in the world with them at home and now it feels the exact opposite. It's exciting to watch them spread their wings and grow, but it's hard on the heart don't you think?
We had our traditional dinner of alphabet soup. Though the children are way past the alphabet phase they still want to stick with tradition and who am I to argue. This was my 9th year making this meal!
This year our dessert was doughnuts made to resemble apples with the help of icing (powdered sugar and milk), a pretzel stick and a little fruit leather.
