Fifth Grade!

School started today.  Note that K's uniform is the proper length.  Only problem-this was the only uniform that the uniform store had.  Uniforms are on back order.  Could be a lot of laundry going on around here.

K is still on the same campus but in a new building (5th and 6th grade only) and she has a locker and has to change classes this year.  This is causing a lot of angst.  I will be so glad after she gets though the first couple of weeks and gets the routine down.  And even happier when her uniforms arrive.  And how about those Ferragamos that our neighbor gave us last year?  They are K's favorite shoes and she is starting to out grow them.  Just my luck!

Summer Vacation-Part III

The third phase of our summer vacation was a trip to Aspen.  Wonderful to be in the cool, crisp air.  I worked a lot but our Aspen friends kept K busy (thanks Kimmie!).  K also went to a fake fighting camp-part of an acting camp.

K did some of this

We spotted some elk on Owl Creek Road and in Kimmie's driveway one evening

A beautiful sunset on Owl Creek Road

Can't go to Aspen without spending an evening at the rodeo with Kimmie

A little mechanical bull riding-K made it to level two

Calf scramble

A little rain at the rodeo resulted in a beautiful rainbow, actually a double rainbow-see the other rainbow on the right side of the photo

We always take a ride up the gondola

Checking out the town from the gondola

The end!
