Utter Chaos

Was the first day of 2nd grade. It didn't help that it was raining. But G did great. The teacher let them chew gum and play with play doh just to ease them into the day. I did take pictures but can't download them until the weekend.

The weather is starting to cool off now which is good for us and bad for us all at the same time. The mosquitoes are biting with a vengeance. G has 9 bites down the outside of her left calf. I didn't even know that section of her leg was big enough to hold that many bites. She looks like she has whelps and that isn't the only place she has them.

So new mosquito bites for a new school year. YIPPEE!

oh and did I mention that she is now a size 2 shoe? Here I was thinking we were going to make it on size 1 for a bit longer and whaddyaknow? size 2. I felt kinda of bad for the fussing at her about her complaining of her shoes hurting. Maybe she was a size bigger than I actually had her in last year. How fast do feet grow anyway?

Wow! A size 2 shoe! Lottie is almost 7 and still wears a 10 1/2..ha ha...little runt:)

Mosquitoes...yuck...why do they love our babies so much? We never had them in Puebla but they are EVERYWHERE in Mexico City but thankfully only at night.

Praying G has an awesome school year!

Feet can grow every 4-6 months.

Hope 2nd grade is a good year
