Now that we have begun our blog it is time to catch you up on life at the Tate house. On Monday, August 10th, we had hopes of posting our first entry with great news about the first day of school. Well, we quickly remembered that the return to school is a crazy time of year. You go from the carefree days of summer to making lunches, packing backpacks, doing homework and early bedtimes. The girls love their teachers and their classmates. Of course I love being at the same school as the girls and seeing their smiling faces any chance I get. Even when I don't see them, I know they are close. Most of you know that the first week back to school ended with Elena spending Thursday night in the hospital.
We are happy to be home together and things are back to normal around here. Elena enjoyed a visit from two of her teachers this morning. They brought a yummy cookie cake and cards from her classmates. We enjoyed the cookie cake before having lunch! The girls spent the rest of the day playing with friends. We are thankful that Elena is feeling good. It has been a very good day!
