Spent the day at Seattle #Pride with my daughter and her best friend. We had a blast and now I'm ready to lay down with a book and get some rest.

Fridameetslucy Happy pride from NYC pride! 5mo
marleed My brother spent time as the editor of the Seattle Gay News. He was unfortunately of the generation of gay men who was not able to grow old. He would be so proud of Seattle and this month. 5mo
LokiDokey @marleed I will have to look up the paper/publication, that sounds really cool. Last year was the first time I ever went to Pride and I was really worried because I didn't know what to expect but my daughter really wanted to go and I am so glad we did. Everyone is so friendly and loving and it the parade and festival are so family friendly. 5mo
LokiDokey @Fridameetslucy thank you. Happy Pride to you 🏳️‍🌈 5mo

Okay, one more because I am THAT mom today. These girls are both genuinely happy about starting school!

LauraBeth This may be the cutest picture to ever grace Litsy. I hope they have a catastic day 😺After they leave it's perfectly acceptable to cry. And then go have some coffee and read 😀 2y
Suet624 Gah!!! Adorable. I was just reading in The Course in Miracles that true innocence is equal parts wisdom and strength. This picture brought that concept home for me. 2y
Laura317 Beautiful young ladies! 2y

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Hope they have a great first day! 2y
saresmoore @Suet624 I love that! Ellie picked out her purple sparkly high tops precisely because they make her feel strong. I've been totally (miraculously) at peace today and am so thankful for a new life chapter. 2y
saresmoore @britt_brooke ♥️♥️♥️ 2y
saresmoore @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Thank you—I really think they will. Are you back to teaching soon or taking paternity leave? 2y
saresmoore @Ashley_Nicoletto Thank you! ♥️ 2y
saresmoore @LauraBeth There may be a bit of crying happening, but they're peaceful and thankful tears. It's surreal! 2y
Cinfhen OMG‼️‼️‼️They look so super ready cute❤️❤️❤️be proud.... your babies are ready to soar and so are you #mamaBear ☕️Wish I was there to share a coffee & a hug 🤗 2y

saresmoore @TrishB Thank you! I think they will have a blast! 2y
Reviewsbylola I love back to school! My kids start a week from today! 2y
MaureenMc Such beauties! Ready to take on the world! Our school's PTO sponsors a "boo hoo breakfast" for the 1st day of school. Did your school have something like that? I'm looking forward to commiserating with other kindy parents. ? 2y
saresmoore @Reviewsbylola Yay! I love it, too. Getting to buy school supplies is probably my second favorite thing (behind book buying, of course)! 2y
saresmoore @MaureenMc Solidarity, sister! They didn't have anything special today, but I think there is going to be a lot of neat programming throughout the year. I'll be volunteering every chance I get! 2y
MaureenMc @saresmoore Yessss, school supplies!! I was kinda bummed that the kindergarten list was rather small. I was definitely more excited about the school supplies shopping than my daughter. 😄 2y
merelybookish They look happy and ready to take on the world! What grades are they going into? 2y
batsy They're both beautiful and look so excited! I hope they have a wonderful time. I love Lucy's style. 2y
saresmoore @merelybookish 3rd and 1st! I'm a bit nervous that my eldest will be bored to tears, but I'm sure they'll be able to accommodate if she needs more of a challenge. 2y
saresmoore @batsy She is very particular in her tastes! Except for their shared genetic material, they are about as different as two people can be. I think they will have fun. 2y
NCNY Adorable! They look so excited! Btw, your little one's sneakers are totally reminding me of LA Gear. Might have been slightly before your time. 2y
readordierachel Cute overload! Happy first day to them! 2y
ReadingEnvy They are so cute!! 2y
Suet624 How did it go??? 2y
saresmoore @Suet624 Little Miss Shy & Reluctant hasn't stopped talking about it since 2pm when I retrieved her! They both had a great time, although I think Lucy was a bit bored. Time will tell and we all survived! 2y
UwannaPublishme So sweet! 💕 2y
Bookzombie They are so cute! Also, I love school supplies. I get giddy when the stores start putting them out and I don't have kids or go to school anymore. ☺️ 2y
LauraBrook Such a fantastic pic of your beautiful girls! Glad you all made it through the day, what a stressful one for all of you! ❤️ Your kids have some excellent style. 2y
saresmoore @LauraBrook Don't they, though! I felt the Litsy love today and fought my anxiety like Wonder Woman! Well, maybe more like Lois Lane...when she needs to be rescued... But still! The girls both really enjoyed themselves, even my shy one came alive. 2y
LauraBeth If Lucy is bored you can always do Duke Tip. We had the same issue with Emma. Her teachers wanted her to take the SAT in 7th grade 😱and they really, really encouraged the Duke Tip program. She's in 8th grade now and taking high school credit courses. With her she'll get bored and realize she can coast on by with zero effort so we have to stay vigilant. 2y
saresmoore @LauraBeth That's great advice. Even after the introduction today, I think Lucy realized that school is going to be easy for her. 2y
LauraBeth School will be a breeze for Lucy. Take advantage of that to just teach her to be a good human - I know you already are! ❤️ I told Emma to view school as a place where she can help others. So she tudors in math and helps out in the special needs rooms. I didn't even know she did that until one day at chick fil a someone came up to me and asked, "are you Emma's mom?' I'm the special needs teacher and she comes in my room and helps me!" I had no idea 2y
saresmoore @LauraBeth That is so cool! And it's good to remember that sometimes they are the best humans when we aren't looking. 2y
Cinfhen So happy to see first day went well!!! 2y
ValerieAndBooks I love these pictures you've posted of their first day 💖!! 2y
Jinjer So cute! And WHY is it kids today all seem to LOVE school? I remember dreading and hating it every day and always pretending to be sick to get out of going. 2y
LeahBergen Oh, look at them!! This photo made me feel so excited and happy for their big adventure. ❤️❤️ 2y
saresmoore @Jinjer Right? Lucy has read a ton of books about kids who hate school or get in trouble there, so when the principal came to escort her to her teacher yesterday (a friendly errand), her eyes lit with a sudden panic. 😳😂 2y
RealLifeReading Back to school already? My boy is starting on August 30! 2y
