Yesterday was Sophie's last day as a preschooler. Her teacher sent me a couple of pictures. The kids were cleaning the tables (I'm not sure what they were using to clean), but Sophie tells me it was fun. And she got to help put together a new bookshelf using a cordless drill. School is closed next week so the teachers can get ready for the new school year, and Grandma Lauren is on her way to spend the week with Sophie!
We squeezed in more day at the local pool. It was *only* 85 and it's been cooling off at night, so the pool was a little colder than they were used to. But we had it nearly all to ourselves.
The girls agreed to go out for dinner with me to my favorite restaurant, a Vietnamese place close to our house. Lucia, who usually limits her diet to mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, and pb&j requested her own bowl of pho (noodle soup in broth). And she actually ate it!
