Changes...

Macauley and I went to TJMaxx today and bought his backpack for kindergarten, which starts on 25 August. I am rather apprehensive about this change in our lives but he doesn't seem to be. Tomorrow we go for kindergarten shots, and he has been worried about that a little but not panicked. As we were leaving TJMaxx he asked me if he could take Kenny and Blankie to school with him for naptime. I said I didn't know. He said, "If it's okay with my teacher?" And all I was thinking about was what the other kids might say, and I hate that we're entering that stage...It's the end of the innocence in a lot of ways I fear. But what can you do? We chose a green Addidas pack that seems big but was smaller than the others. I think he looks adorable in it. I'm wondering how much homework will be sent home in it...

The other big event of our day is that we put our house on the market. We have been trying for a couple of months to buy my dream house on the south side of town, near my sister and the school where I teach, but haven't been able to reach an agreement with the banker selling that house. So we're hoping to sell this one for more leverage. It is a great house on a lovely street with such a sense of community. The market seems to be picking up just a little here, so we're hoping for the best. If you know of anyone who might be interested, we're using Assist 2 Sell so we could offer it at the best price. It will be on springfieldassist2sell.com in the next day or so.

I can't believe Macauley is going to Kindergarten!! I remember when he came up to our old room, and of course, all the girls in my 4th block just thought he was the cutest thing that ever walked on the planet! Good luck with the house--I think it's adorable, so hopefully you won't have any problems selling.

Lindsay told me about your dream house and showed me a picture of the outside. It's SO cute! I hope everything works out for you guys. Oh - and Macauley looks like such a good little student with his new backpack. Too cute:)
