First Day of School

This year Athena is in 4th grade and Samantha is in 2nd grade. It's so crazy for me to see them growing up so quickly! As usual, they had their school clothes all picked out a week ago and have been so excited to put them on.

I always tell the girls they can't wear their new clothes until the very first day of school. They say their clothes are "locked". They are very excited to have their clothes "unlocked" now.

I curled both their hair special for their big day. Athena was saying to me this morning in a very grown-up voice, "I bet all the girls will have their hair curled today."


Here they are at the school ready to go in.


It's a little sad to have them back in school again. This summer went so fast, but I think it mostly went so fast because we were busy doing so many fun things. So, I guess it's a good thing that we had a lot of fun together. The structure of school will be nice too - I'll just miss having them around.

They both look great for their first day of school. I'm still trying to get myself into the new routine. It is nice though to have a bit of time during the day when I am not hearing arguments or pestering someone to go do their chores.

They are so cute! I think school starts way too early... don't you think they should at least wait until after Labor Day?

It would be nice if it didn't start until later, but I do like how they are done with school by the end of May. I guess it all works out. I would like more summer, though!

Cute!! That's so exciting--I still remember that "first day of school" feeling. I hope it was good for them. Is Nathan going to be in preschool?

Unfortunately it wasn't so good for either of them on the first day. They both came home sick and went right to bed! I hope they are feeling better tomorrow. That made their first day experiences not so good.

I'll be teaching Nathan from home and I hope it goes well. I decided to save that $50 per month for preschool. It would have been really nice to be able to send him, though.

They look cute in their new clothes. The first day of school is so exciting. What a bummer for them to come home sick. I hope they get better quick.
