To bring you, Norrin's FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN! It was a very emotional day for Todd and I. This little man of ours is growing up so fast, its making our heads spin. He made lots of new friends, but can't remember their names yet. That didn't stop him from inviting them over to his house to play "anytime they want to". He got to eat lunch in a cafeteria and the art teacher came by to introduce himself. He also made a book with a wonderful poem about our love giving him the courage to have a fun day in a new place. And that is all the information he was willing to divulge. He got to choose dinner and dessert last night. He chose Corn and Cheese Chowder for dinner and Red Velvet cake for dessert. Of course, he tried to claim it was backwards day so he could eat dessert first, but I made it clear that backwards days never fall on a Monday. Today will be his first day in the after school care program. It sounds like they'll keep him busy with art projects or games, so hopefully, the time will fly and he'll barely notice being picked up three hours later :).

This day was our only rainy, overcast, yucky day of vacation. So, of course, Norrin wanted to go fishing. Actually, he wanted to go crabbing, but we're slightly more clueless about crabbing than we are about fishing. We drove to the really long pier in Rodanthe. This is supposedly a tourist attraction because it was used excessively in the movie, Nights in Rodanthe. They actually charged us to walk on the pier. Only a few dollars, but still... Ani and I walked the pier then got in the car to go shopping. Norrin and Da had a blast together until Norrin got a splinter and then I was called back to handle the situation. The kids spent most of the late afternoon playing in the house and as the sun set, the frogs crept out of their corners and decorated our little house.
|That's our boy.|
|A simple, beautiful smile...so hard to come by these days.|
|Ani Rose was not as adventurous about this pier. She stuck close to me and didn't want to pose for any pictures.|
|Our little fisherman.|
|I think Norrin likes fishing.|
|The frogs...this is just as they're starting to come out...picture about 100 more.|
