Kate and her friends started school today (that sound you hear in the background is my wife Nicki clapping and woot wooting!) and it was the perfect day for it.

The brutal heat from the past week or so broke and today was cool and clear making the early morning assembly comfortable and full of excitement.

Nicki and Nicole had the kids as they walked to school.

Livi & Sparky were full of energy all morning (they would go to pre-school a bit later) and Kate and Marlee were anxious to get to school, both with their new backpacks.
