More than one change has been happening to this little family.

As of last Thursday we have officially relocated to Kansas City, Missouri! It was a long time coming with lots of deliberating, planning, bleeding, sweating, and tearing. (Well... maybe only a few of those things.)

We have purchased an adorable little house on a beautiful street, convinced our employers to let us work remotely (no idea why they agreed to that one), and enrolled our dear girl in... wait for it... school! (Well... an "early childhood learning center" to be more specific.)

She will be attending this wonderful little place three days a week for the early part of the day and these photos document her first venture in. She's extra lucky because her big cousin, Evey (3), attends the same school so she has someone older and wiser to look out for her if things go awry.

As we predicted she had absolutely no reservations about getting into the fold and no problem at all with us saying goodbye for the day. As we also predicted she did have reservations about – gasp – sharing toys. (A concept she has thus far been able to avoid.) Regardless, she was more than happy to go back in for her second day today and we're so happy to see her exposed to a new environment and lots of new faces.

We will have more on the move and the house and the everything as time goes on. I am really hoping that my new found lack-of-commute produces more free time and opportunities for hobbies like this blog.


  1. I cannot get over the fact that she is holding a backpack. I feel like I just met her. Glad you're settling in in your new home. Please tell me my package made it to your house before you moved. Customs can be retarded.

  2. Love the pictures! Lucy looked at them and said "Maggie, pretty hair" and Maggie, pretty coat". The classroom looks awesome.

    As for sharing, I hope Maggie bends them to her will!

  3. Enjoy the freedom of using Office Standard 2010 from more locations on more devices. Microsoft Outlook 2010 download provides you with a world-class experience to stay productive and in touch with your personal and business networks.
