We’ve been talking about it for months now and the day finally arrived, today was Belén’s first day of kindergarten. She picked out her outfit weeks ago and this weekend we put the finishing touches on the accessories. (Thanks to Nana for the lego earrings and Scrabble ‘B’ ring.) School supplies were purchased and dropped off at orientation last week and the Frozen (what else?) backpack arrived from amazon before we left on vacation. This weekend, B and I put together her “Birthday Book” which isn’t “due” until November but we were giddy for a school project. She also did an awesome job of filling out and coloring the pages of her “All About Me” book.

Fast forward to 8:30 am where you could find Belén holding a hand of each of her parents, skipping down the sidewalk towards her new school. We congregated on the playground with a hundred other kids and parents waiting for the bell to ring, explaining how to line up, telling her how proud we were of her.

Needless to say, she was thrilled the day had finally arrived and giddy to start this next chapter of her life.

 
She was even more excited about the school year at the conclusion of her first day so I’d say it was a success. On to new adventures an exciting career as a student. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step…

A Week in Barcelona, España

I recently had the pleasure of attending one of the largest technology trade shows, Mobile World Congress, in its beautiful host city, Barcelona, Spain. I hadn’t previously had the opportunity to visit Spain before, so I was ecstatic about the trip, all except for the part of being away from the kids for so long. […]

Particular, Articulate and Self-Sufficient

Tonight I told Eloise that I was going on a short trip and she replied, “You’re going on a trip? Where to?”
Surprised by her question, I said, “Phoenix, Arizona.”

She didn’t stop there, “Oh, that sounds fun. I will miss you mommy.”
Holy cow, when did this girl learn how to have real conversations?
