Day 199: Hair Tinsel

Never heard of it? Yeah, me neither. Until yesterday.

And now, I'm wearing it. Along with Sweet P. This picture doesn't show it that well. HH took some much better ones, but we forgot to get any of the two of us together, so I just quickly took this one using the computer's camera. I'll have to post some of the others tomorrow.

Or, you can click here to see what it's all about.

But if you look closely, you can see something shiny in our hair. Sweet P's is purple and mine is kind of golden. Mine isn't quite that big of a contrast from my normal hair as it looks in this photo. We both have some multi-colored strands, too.

Getting something fun (and a little wild) done with my sweet daughter before she goes off to Kindergarten and becomes all independent was today's Joyful Moment.

Seeing her excitement as we attended her school's Open House tonight was another Joyful Moment. I had to fill out a questionnaire for the teacher. One of the questions was, "What is your child good at?" I might be in a bit of a sentimental mood given the circumstances, but I struggled not to just write a mile long list of all the billions of things she's good at. Or to simply write, "She's just amazing. Please, don't ever forget this!"

I always thought I'd be pretty stoic on the first day of Kindergarten. I'm pretty sure I thought wrong.

Wishing you all sparkly and wild Joyful Moments!

Cheryl, that picture is just about the sweetest thing ever. I love it. It is so fun watching you as a mommy.

Hope kindergarten goes well!

I rememer the day each of my 5 started school as a bittersweet memory. So excited because each of you were excited, but sad to lose your companionship and have to share you 5 days a week.

My joy today - dinner with great friends and tasting Mexican corn (yummy!). And dinner with great friends yesterday too.
