The last king of Camelot......

Today was a sad day for me. I have loved the Kennedy's from a young age. In high school I read many many books about them, some were several hundreds of pages long. I think I have my mother and her side of the family to thank. They are from Boston, and later the Cape. My mother has a library card signed by Sen. John Kennedy. I have been to Hyannis and the JFK museum there, I have seen the Kennedy compound (from the road). Teddy was the last great king of their Camelot. He was and extraordinary man. He dealt with a lot of tragedy in his life, more than any man should have to deal with. He took over as the man of the family at a young age.

If all you know of Teddy Kennedy is that he was the younger brother of Jack, and Bobby, and his involvement in Chappaquiddick then you don't know who he was.

Today for me was a very sad day, I could not take my eyes off the news. I streamed the Boston News Channel all day. I am watching "Teddy: In his own words", I just can't help it. I have even pre-ordered Teddy's autobiography, soI can have it to read as well.

To quote my mother "The “Lion of the Senate” has issued his final roar"

The beginning.....meeting the teacher...

So last week we had Meet the Teacher Day at Breanna's new "big kid" school. Yep that is right, my little baby is getting ready to make the big transition to actual school. We had gone and gotten all of her supplies, got a special new princess backpack, and were all ready for the evening.

Breanna was SUPER excited about it. She was READY to go. She even decided to take her "camera" so that she could take pictures of her new school herself.

This was in her actual classroom. After we had met the teacher. I almost could not get her out of there. She loved all of the books, and new things that there was to explore.

After exploring the classroom and dropping off all of our supplies we went and joined the PTO, bought the new school t-shirts, and the new school decals. WOW Pre-K was a little more involved than I was ready for. It is going to be a great adventure for all of us!!
