So in celebration of this momentous event, me, Julee & Holly decided to have a mommy brunch with all of our friends. After we took the kids to school this morning we came back to my house, baked a few casseroles, made a few pitchers of mimosas and waited for the doorbell to ring. Everyone came with smiling faces and good news about their children's first day of school. I think we all will miss these days of leisure with no homework, carpools and after school activities, but it sure was nice to talk to grownups without being yanked on or having to break up a fight! Being able to finish a conversation with a friend is a true luxury to a mom, and today was one of those rare times that we got to do just that. Thanks everyone for coming -- I had a great time seeing you all!
