We had a great first day of school. I didn't feel fully prepared, but it still went well. We actually did more than usual for a first day. I had planned a pretty easy day for Tuesday, but then decided not to do any school to have a not going to school celebration. Caleigh said she was happy to start back because the days seemed boring without school. Colin says he wants to try harder this year and have a really good year so he had started before I even got up.
My little one didn't nap like I hoped she would, but she played while we did some things and nursed while I read so it worked out.
Once we finished school, we walked to a park about 1 1/2 miles from our house.

For the last 4 years, I had made a themed cake for the first day. I had an idea for this year, but it's hard to find the time needed for that with a baby who wants me to hold her most of the time. So I came up with a different idea. I made each kid a round cake and let them decorate it themselves. I think they really liked doing it on their own.
