March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

First Day Jitters and a Delivery

Today we started first grade. I say "we" because each year is a new experience for all of us. It is a change, a time for us to stretch ourselves. Sweet Mary Frances gets to break us all in. By the time Betsy gets to first grade we will be old hats at this yet then we will be beginning a new era at the Junior High. {We won't dwell on that today.}

Mary Frances was very excited yet a bit anxious. She clung first to me and then to Stephen. No worries, he was holding on equally hard to her. He is ready to stay in first grade already ~ who needs 4K.

From school, we went home to clean the kitchen and then back to play at the Tot Lot before racing to see this!
Yes that is an 18-wheeler. Don't you know my boys were in heaven. Our cabinets are inside this large fascinating vehicle. We watched them unload for a bit.
The lighting is terrible for the following pictures as they were taken during our nightly tour of the house.
Those boxes contain cabinets for the kitchen, butler's pantry, and mudroom, and these contain my laundry room/office/sewing room.

Not only did they unload 80+ cabinets, they were able to install all of the vanities. This is a picture of the boys bathroom.
Here is the girls:

And one of ours:

And for old times sake we took a picture of Mary Frances in the same place where Frank always had his picture taken on the first day of school.
