First Day Of School!
This past week the girls started their first day of school. I got them up early Wednesday morning and boy were they excited. So excited that they were jumping and singing around the house when they were supposed to be eating their breakfast.
I had always known this day would come and I had expected it to be a very emotional day for me. But I think seeing them so excited that morning about starting school just kept me smiling.
Here they are posing for a picture just before we left. The princess backpack was a MUST! I had my eye on other one's but they wouldn't let up about having the "Princess" backpack. When I was walking them to their class all I saw going down the hallway was about a million of the same backpack's. And not only did the other kids in other classes have them, almost every little girl in their class also had the same one. It's a good thing I put their names on everything!
When we got to school we had to wait outside for a bit for their teacher to come and get them. Both were pretty impressed with the big park and playground that was there.

This is probably the only good picture of got of them inside their class. They were both still very excited about being there until one other little girl in the class became hysterical. I think it caused a bit of a chain reaction because my two very excited little girls all of a sudden wanted to go home. So I thought for sure me having to leave would not be good. But with a little distraction from the teacher's helper, I did manage to sneak out. Halfway down the hall is when my sunglasses had to come out because for the very first time ever I was leaving them with a complete stranger for an entire day!
By the time I got into the car I had pretty much pulled things together and I kept telling myself they would be fine.
I spent most of the day cleaning parts of my house that have been neglected. I actually was so busy that day, that before I knew it, it was time to go and pick them up.

As they walked out of the school, they both had huge smiles on their faces and asked if they go back the next day. They LOVED it!! They have talked about school everyday and can't wait to go back.

What an emotional day. It must have been so quiet with them both at school.
I can't believe how long their hair is again. What do you feed them?

Lexi & Tori said...

I am crying, thanks. Tori's first day is on Monday and I am hoping for the same outcome as you. I am so nervous about leaving her. She is still so little and only 3 until the end of December.
I am glad they had a great day!!
