Unfortunately, I had a focusing problem with school pictures this year. So Heather and Corinne's pictures are pretty bad. I couldn't tell on the camera, so I didn't find out until I looked at the pictures on the computer later, so no retakes. Lame.
Heather was very excited for school to start again. She has some friends in her Kindergarten class from TK last year. Stress levels have been high all weekend due to a malfunctioning smoke alarm on Saturday morning (Heather has been freaking out about the idea of the house burning down). But despite her amped up anxiety levels we made it to school on time and she had a good first day.
She got to watch the eclipse at school. They had the kids watch pinhole cameras and then took them one-at-a-time to use eclipse glasses. I'm glad the Livermore schools actually made an event out of it and found something that would work for young kids. The Lab donated enough eclipse glasses to the school system for every student and faculty member.
She finished the day with a smile (and Oreo crumbs all over her mouth).
Heather's TK class had a special evening program where they sang songs telling the story of the gingerbread man. Then at the end they had a bonus dance number.
