Tuesday - second day of school and a childrens book review

The second day of school  is so completely different than the first! My little sleepyheads had a hard time starting their day but by the time they got to school they were walking around like pros! Katie-Abigail went right to her class and her teacher told me she'd had a great first day at school. It turns out that Katie-Abigail loves going to school and is doing great in her class, despite all of my worries. 

Josiah and I came home and enjoyed a nice little breakfast. Then we read the most  adorable book

This book is about baby animals and their mothers doing fun things together. The pictures are all soft and pretty and cheerful and the text is delightful. It is easy to read, rhyming and repetitive with words that are fun to say and very young children will enjoy hearing. My favorite part of this book is that it ends with a kiss from mommy!

Sweet Shot Day

p.s. thank you to those of you who have linked up with their photo for my photo challenge so far this week! a special shout-out to Cara for her AWESOME shots this week!
