We're Go For Lift Off

Natlaya, may your first day of first grade be indicative of the many first journeys you take. It's a big, big, big world. We know you'll go far.

This will be My Best Shot for today. As always, the party's at Tracey's Monday mornings.

Me and my girls taken by our sweet friends.

Among the many accomplishments I know she will be honored with is this! My big girl got first place in the A Little Perspective photo contest hosted by Tracey Clark et al. Natalya is very artistic at heart and I see lots of wonderful creations in her future. (Our sweet dog has a been a good model lately affording both Natalya and myself a first place win recently. We adore her.)

It will be Vienne's turn tomorrow!

God bless you, angels walk with you and don't forget your lunch Natalya! :0) You are as talented as your mommy! How did I miss that she was the WINNER! CONGRATULATIONS! You both are amazing. You should also enter your puppy photo in the http://www.luckydogbiscuits.typepad.com/

So fun to start the school year off with such great friends. Glad we ran into you and shared in this special day! :) We'll do it again tomorrow!

Chris said...

Wow, how gorgeous are all of YOU?! What a good looking, talented family. I hope she had a great first day of school. School here doesn't start until Weds, Sept. 5th and then they only go half days to boot. Guess they don't want to stress those kids out for the first 3 days of school, hmm?!

Congratulations. I guess the photo bug is inherited.
