Just a quick snapshot of the kids in their element. Luca (10), Autumn (7), Mia (5). Luca is starting 5th grade this fall and Autumn and Mia have their September birthdays coming up. All are currently in the same school this year. They were really excited to all be riding the bus and we all hope they will be able to attend in person together sometime this year.

This year we had two runners in the annual Montclair Elementary fun run fundraiser. Not an easy task in 85 degree weather!
I snapped a few pics of Luca before joining him for the remainder of his laps.
Enjoying a well-deserved treat afterwards
Then it was Autumn’s turn – all smiles and excitement!
And off she went, first one out of the gateShe kept herself cool by pouring water on her head every time she passed the water station, and of course by enjoying her ice cold popsicle at the end
So proud of you both!
We don’t know how, but somehow our little baby is starting preschool today! After weeks of asking if it was time to go to school, Mia was eager to carry her bag and pose for her first day of school picture.
Proud big brother and big sister supporting our little chickadee on her first day

Finding her cubby
And she had a great first day! Well done Mia Mae! So proud of you!
Autumn started kindergarten today!
And Luca, the old pro, started 3rd grade.
Mia joined in on the love, stay tuned for her big day next week…
Autumn was so brave, she jumped right in and never looked back!
Meanwhile at home, Mia and I made fresh chocolate chip cookies to celebrate the big day.
All smiles getting off the bus. Good job kiddos! Here’s to a great school year!
It was Autumn’s dinner theater. This year’s theme was Country Fair Jamboree! She has been practicing for so long and knew all her songs and dance moves. It was pretty amazing to see her perform.
Our entire family was ready and won the blue ribbon for best dressed!
Autumn had a special singing and dance solo, the barnyard boogie, that we’ll post later once we get the video.
There was an auction for the special painting project her class made.
I put Luca in charge of the bidding paddle soooOoo we came home with it
and a giant balloon cow.
Luca’s first day of first grade
And Autumn’s first day at her new preschool
Luca’s school had its yearly “Fun Run” today. As soon as he saw me he gave me a big grin and a wave.
Hey somethings changed from this morning!!! Luca lost one of his front teeth! He said he took a bite of his apple and it stayed stuck in the apple. Missing front tooth super cute.
Time to get started. Go Luca!
Lots of high-fives (the red tail hawk is the schools mascot)
Lots of kicking it with friends
and lots of fun
Love you buddy
We make Luca’s lunch every night and he gets a pretty healthy selection of fruits, veggies, and some sandwich or pasta all packed into his cool lunch box. While a lot of parents do the same I think I can say Luca has the coolest lunch notes in kindergarten!
Luca Lee it seems like only yesterday your mom and I brought you home from the hospital to our little condo in Pasadena.
We blinked and now it’s your first day of kindergarten
We all love you so much and your sisters were so proud of their big brother
