First Day of School

When I picked up The Kid, she told me she wanted ice cream. On our way there, I kept trying to get details out of her about her new school and her first day. And even as we sat down to have our ice cream, I kept asking her questions. Finally, she sighed and said "Can we just enjoy our ice cream?" Okay, then! Here she is, enjoying her ice cream.

All in all, I think it was a good day and that she didn't have much to report because they mostly went over the class rules. Maybe she'll have more to tell tomorrow!

Renaissance Festival

This past weekend was my favorite time of the year. Renaissance Festival time! Or as I like to call it quietly to myself, "FREAK SHOW!"

Here's The Kid getting a green phoenix painted on her arm.

The Queen made her a princess, complete with a certificate!

The Kid and the Fairy Queen

The Kid and a Medieval lass

She got to dig for buried treasure!

The Kid and two dragon heads

The Freak Show rubbed off on her a little bit, I think.

Pony Ride!

Chillin' on her fairy toadstool.
