coloring with Grampy

My kindle died several hours ago and ruined what would have been a perfectly good day.
How did I live without my ereader? You know, back before 2010? I can't even remember.
I am really quite upset about it, in a genuine way that makes me suspect I am, perhaps, overly attached to the damn thing. I mean. It's just a kindle. I can get another one.
...but it's been six hours, I MISS IT. and my heart is broken.

On the other hand, without my kindle to cuddle up with, here I am blogging. So that's good, I guess, WHATEVER UNIVERSE. WORST INTERVENTION EVER.

Here are some pictures from a happier time, back in August, when my kindle still worked and also Christofer's family was in town:

Ahhh. The good ol' days.

first day of preschool

Here is Ivy right before leaving for her first ever school experience. 

My mom is bossy and not as funny as she thinks she is.

She picked out an outfit and posed for me.

Then she pointed out that I forgot to buy her a backpack. Which is true.
Tough luck, third child.
There was no nervousness--Ivy just wants to throw herself in. I've been going back and forth about whether I really wanted her to do preschool this year, but watching her pleasure this morning sold me.

This wonderful amazing Ivy-girl is going to have a wonderful amazing year. I just know it.
