We are moving ... virtually.

We are attempting a move to Tumblr since our posts have become shorter and shorter as our kids have grown.

Our new virtual address is: http://blanchardthehut.tumblr.com/


First Day of Kindergarten

Dear Elliott,

Today is your first day of kindergarten and you are MORE than ready to go. We established a little routine and it seemed to work out well. You found comfort in the routine and had recited it a few times the day before and then in the morning...almost like it was a countdown to go to school: One Show, breakfast, dressed, school.

I laid out two outfits for you to choose from - we did a little mix and match and you were ready! I was a bit relieved since sometimes, when you are nervous (or when you are not nervous :), it seems, you fuss about your clothes. Once you were dressed you were so ready that you were concerned that you might be late! I guess years of me worrying about that have rubbed off. (sorry:)

Papa and Suki came by to walk with us. Suki gave you a special charm for your Princess Backpack.* Suki put the charm on your pack and gave you a big hug. She and Papa are so excited for your new adventure to kindergarten!

We all walked down the street together - You, Daddy, Papa, Suki, Reese and Mommy. We met up with the neighborhood kids too. You were so excited you ran ahead a bit to walk with Emma and Jack and then slowed down to walk holding Abby's hand.

We walked down a sloping path to where the kindergarteners enter the school. You were so excited to go inside that you were rushing forward. I held you back for a moment, gave you a kiss and off you went. They took your hand and had to take a seat on the floor with all the other kids.

I peeked down the hall from where I was outside and saw you there: sitting with your back pack between your sparkling princess sneakers looking around. Not scared, not sad, instead, curious, wondering.

And as I sit and type about my little girl, with tears of love for all that you have given us; I too am looking around, curious and wondering. Perhaps we have a lot more unity in this separation than I ever considered before.

I love you sweet girl. I'll see you at 2:30

*The back pack you chose from the row of possible options we had placed on the floor of Khols. (papa and I were rooting for the blue tinker bell backpack but you wanted pink pricesses all the way!)

Elliott's version of "playing ball" is dressing up as Belle and pretending to go to a ball.

Prince Charming she calls "Prince Charm"

This Morning

I gave Elliott her favorite kind of chocolate milk. Her eyes got wide
when she saw the bottle. Then I told her after she took a shower and
Reese was asleep I would play a computer game with her.

She sang "woo hoo, my momma's my girl" it was pretty rad.

Princess Luna Cutie Mark

Today i tried my hand at placing a Princess Luna Cutie Mark. It was
pretty intense. As I was cutting the outline of the "tattoo" Elliott
hovered over me..."don't cut the cutie mark mama...I'm just afraid you
are gong to cut the cutie mark..." You could have heard a pin drop
when I peeled off the paper to reveal the cutie mark. We both breathed
"wow" together.

It was pretty awesome.
