When I gave out the prompt this morning, I thought that I'd be writing all about Emma's first day of summer and all that entails. Well, we've had some other firsts today, so I'll just make a list.

Today was Emma's first day of summer vacation.

DSU 198 launched for the first time (of many, I hope).

Today was the first time I was able to have someone outside our family watch George (while he was awake) without him screaming until my return.

I locked myself out of the house for the first time. The spare keys were inside. Convenient, no? Luckily, we haven't yet fixed the lock on one of our doors that is fairly easy to pop.

I signed my first born up for Kindergarten.

I completely forgot that today was Thursday and that George has speech therapy on Thursdays. For the first time, we were late. (Good thing I know the cops' hiding places!)

As much as I don't want to venture out into the muggy heat, I may have to use our new lawnmower for the first time. I'm afraid the lawn might swallow our kids and it's scheduled to thunderstorm off and on for the next few days.

It's only 2:30, I kinda hope there aren't anymore firsts today, I'm tired!

What a day of firsts and an interesting take on the question. I, too, hope you don't have any more firsts today unless they are exceptionally good.

LOL What a great post, Meg!

I couldn't help giggling about the locked door. It's nice to know I'm not the only one to do that! I hope this was the first and last day of this kind for you!

wow, that is a lot of firsts. I hope the rest of your day was not quite as eventful

Gotta hate it when you lock yourself out. makes you remember all those good intentions to hide a spare key somewhere.
