Back to school

Today is the first day of school for Emory and Lily!  Emory was greeted by friends he hasn't seen since spring and was fine leaving me to chat and catch up. Lily was nervous,  held my hand until the last minute,  but was brave and walked into class like the big girl she is. I think it was harder on me than either of them! My baby is now a kindergartner,  how the time flies.

Emory, Lily & Snarf


Meet the newest member of our family,  Snarf. He is about 9 weeks old and he is a beautiful Maine Coone. We picked him up yesterday, and he is the cutest little ball of fluff. He is adventurous, playful and sweet.

We were the only people there, and it is beautiful. It was landscaped perfectly, had lots of beautiful flowers and pathways, just beautiful:
