 It is the Little Nies first day of school today!
This has been a much anticipated day for each of them.
Last night, the whole family journeyed to the elementary school where we met
 Jane, Ollie, and Nicholas' teachers.  It's going to be a great year!!
Tonight we will head to the Junior High where Claire will be attending, 
to meet her teachers.
(Can you believe I have a child in junior high school?!!?) 
A few weeks ago,  the children (mostly Clane) and I shopped for school clothes.
We do most of our shopping online.  It's simple, convenient, and fast.
And also, the thoughts of taking Lottie shopping 
with the children seems so overwhelming.
When the kids clothes came in the mail last week, 
Clane was most excited.  The boys could care less
(except for their shoes, and underwear).
I helped the girls piece their clothes together into outfits.
Then I suggested I photo the ideas for them so they could 
reference some of these cute ideas when they start to 
complain in October that they don't have any clothes and that jazz.
Jane insisted on photo-bombing all of Claire's photos, 
and I was too lazy to stop her.  
Plus it was really funny.  
Then the boys wandered into the girls room,
 and I told them they couldn't do anything stupid 
(like tease the girls) or I would kick them out.
Of course they did stupid things 
(like tease the girls, and make farting noises when 
I was about to take the photos...it was funny and annoying, 
and they made both girls cry) and of course I kicked them out.
Other than that, it was a successful fashion session.
After about 10 outfits, I was getting tired, Lottie woke up from her nap, 
and it was dinner time.
So we quit.
