of work in earnest! Today is the first day of school. Chief is now in 1st grade and Chickee in 3rd. Last year, Chief was in half-day kindergarten, so this year is the first year they are both gone ALL DAY. If I wasn't so busy, I could be sad about my babies growing up so fast. As it is, I'm excited about making major progress on my book and other deadlines. Look how foggy it was this morning! I brought my flashlight out to help the bus driver see us better. Chief was having a few goldfish.
