How did we get here so fast?
Just a year ago, it was Jackson's first day of Kindergarten.
I'm pretty sure we've been going at warp speed ever since.
|7am. Not late! Go us! Ready for their first day of school.|
|It was cloudy and overcast, but the rain stayed away, so we were dry going into school.|
|These two were all smiles and eager to get back to seeing their friends every day.|
|Ms. Garner was very happy to welcome Lila into her classroom. Love this teacher!|
|Lila found her seat right away.|
|Cameron found the class mascot--surprisingly, she didn't try to take him home with us.|
|Within a few minutes, all of Lila's girls were there. It's going to be such a fun year for them.|
|Fourth grade was a little more subdued. And a lot less parents were taking pictures! Jackson may have tried to hide under his desk.|
|This is the first year that Blake and J are in the same class. I'm so happy--he's a good, smart, well behaved kid and I know they will enjoy hanging out together.|
|This is all of their friends that we could find! One was doing the morning announcements, one was eating breakfast in the cafeteria and two were running way late.|
|Cami found her friend Genevieve, though, and ran up to give her a big hug. Gigi said, "I am so excited to go to school!" Then Cami said, "I'm super duper excited to go to school!"|
Too cute for words.
|Madison was also having a great first day of 3rd grade. She loves seeing her sweet friend Zumiya...|
|and always enjoys seeing Aliya at school, too.|
|After we dropped off the kids, little Missy and I came home to bake our cake.|
|She happily helped with every single step, from mixing eggs, to adding the water and oil. Her most favorite task, though, was cleaning the beaters.|
|In no time at all, the big kids were out of school and ready to dive into their back-to-school cake. They told us all about their day and we shared the yummy dessert. Success!|
