Sora's first official day of school was today! It was only 2 hours - tomorrow it will be from 10-3 so it will seem like a "real" day. She will start her full day of 8:30-3 next Wednesday. As you can see, she was pretty excited.

So it's been over a month now, and I am officially in love with our house. I should probably document this now before I move out of the honeymoon phase into the everything needs to be fixed phase.
Below are some of the highlights:
Our fridge. Isn't it clean and organized? It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the red baskets are actually labeled. Because I'm crazy like that.
There are so many other things I love that I could probably go on for hours: the super strong spray on the sink (more than just the normal spray), the fact that Kyle and I prefer different showers and can shower at the exact same time, the fact that we have two toilets so I can actually lock the door, the list goes on and on. I think you get the idea.

Sora stayed at home with Kyle while I had a 2 day training earlier this week. Sora chose to make to do lists both days, the first is really hard to read because of the pink marker (and the fact that a 5 year old made it doesn't help of course).
List of 36 and a 5 year olds
Hardware store for light
This list includes:
Toy / garden store
I love her creative spelling - she's kind of a perfectionist, and since she's such an amazing reader she usually knows when words are spelled wrong and gets frustrated when she can't spell every word correctly. Anyway, just the fact that she's willing to be wrong and just spell the way that makes the most sense to her is amazing!

Grandma D had a few days off of work so she came to visit us in Yakima. We were super busy canning jam to take pictures. We rushed off to camp Sunday morning and grandma got a taste of camp life before we left on Tuesday morning for Seattle.
Sora loves Ikea almost as much as I do, so we bought some stuff for the house and went back to school and back to work shopping before heading to the hotel. I have a 5 year old cousin in Seattle who got to come swim with Sora and spend the night at the hotel with us. The duo of 5 year old cuteness was almost too much to handle!
We did a little more shopping in the morning with both girls.
Trying on shoes at Nordstrom Rack was like heaven - I think we created some shoe monsters! Here is their version of twins.
After shopping, we headed to a nearby park. The girls played at the splash pad for about an hour before discovering the beach and lake.
The park is in SeaTac right by the airport, but Sora didn't even notice all the airplanes until we were at the park for over 2 hours - she was too busy playing I guess. Also right before we left to drive back to camp, Sora found the free food booth. They were giving out chips and chocolate milk - what's not to love? Sora, lover of all free food, was very excited.
Grandma hitched a ride to the bus station with my uncle and cousin so Sora and I could avoid some of the traffic and we got back to camp in 2.5 hours. Pretty sweet!
