We started school this week!! We have been very anxious to start since all of Norah's friends are back in school already. The girls were getting excited to see/use some of the new homeschool stuff! We started out day by going to breakfast with Kevin.

Well, I did it! I finished my first triathlon! I'm not sure that I will do it again, but it was a great experience! I did think I might die during the swim - it didn't help that is was only 60 degrees in August in Missouri. At one point as I see the buoy off in the distance, I contemplated flagging down one of the canoes. I convinced myself that I probably wasn't going to drown and I should be tired - I mean, hello, I'm in a race!! I did flip over to my back a couple of time - mostly to make sure I wasn't the very last swimmer (our heat was the last to enter the water - I was convinced I would be the VERY last swimmer out of the water and everyone would be staring at me. I even thought someone might announce over the loud speaker that I was the very last swimmer. Ha!). Thankfully, there were a number of people behind me.

As we were driving across the Missouri River the other day, Norah says, "Look Lucy! A Castle! Oh, I love castles. I wish I could live in that castle!"
We had a major first at our house tonight - all 3 girls cried/screamed at the exact same time. It was sort of like a domino effect, Lucy started crying which startled Norah (I know, you would think at 5 she wouldn't be startled by her 3 year old sister) and Norah's crying startled Daphne who also started screaming. LOVELY.

I have to give some background before I give you Lucy's quote of the weekend. We went to visit my parents this weekend for Contessa's birthday party. Since the whole family was there, Kevin, the girls and I stayed at my grandma's - which is down the street from my parents. The girls and I went up on Wednesday and Kevin came on Friday night.
