First day of SCHOOL, yahoo!

Today marked another first...the first day of 4th grade for my son and niece. Aren't they cute here? They are only a little over 2 months apart in age, Little V loves her so much. He's so protective of her sometimes, and always will carry her backpack if she asks or helps her do ANYTHING that needs to be done. I hope they are always as close as they are now. That backpack, BTW weighs a TON. I can't believe how much stuff he had to take for 4th grade!

I spent the day getting STUFF done. A little cleaning, a little visiting with my Mom, some organizing of my studio, my Inspire ME page..and 40 minutes on my treadmill. Donna Downey inspired me to kick it up a notch in the running department. Over 3 something miles and lots of calories burned. It felt good. Though, the 2x a week I barely managed to get in this summer - just to maintain my stamina - is now getting upped to 4+ if I can. I need to get back to NOT eating bread, sugar and all the other evils that plague me these days. I've been having a lot of migraines (yesterday - for example) and I think it's because of the bread! Who knows, but I don't like 'em.

Stay tuned tomorrow for this weeks post of I Inspire's gonna be a GREAT one. Until later, I've got to go bite my nails until the bus gets my Little V home!


  1. They're so cute and I love the scarf on your that "retro" style that's coming back!! First day of school here too -- my youngest is starting grade 11 -- where do the years go?! I was so happy to have the house all to myself today I was just revelling in the "quiet"!!

  2. OH my goodness they are adorable! Looks like they were very excited for school! I know what you mean with the carbs I need to get back to eating my veggies :)

  3. I so love those happy photos!!!!!

    Huge hugs!!!
