Today was Haven's first day of preschool for the year. Initially she was really excited to go back to school. In fact, she's been asking about when she could go back all summer long. But lately she's taken on the big girls' negative school attitude. I think that she started thinking that it's not cool to like school. So she would say things like, "School's dumb," or, "school is too long." We chatted last night and I told her that school is cool and it's her sisters who are dumb. (Okay, I didn't really say that they are dumb.) She woke up this morning eager to go and she had a great time. She will be going three days per week this year instead of two. The teachers all remarked on how much she had grown. And she has. Although I still had to pin her new shorts in the back so they wouldn't fall down. (Why doesn't everyone do those little adjustable waist things? Those are great!) I was shocked that Haven chose shorts to wear on the first day and not a dress. It was a first day of school miracle!

She was slightly irritated that I made her turn around for a picture.
And while I'm on the subject of the Havester, how about a little Haven randomness:
