Yesterday was the first day of school. It was a total success! Everyone woke up on time and we were feeling pretty great about things. Supplies had been labeled and backpacks sat ready to go for the last two weeks. Princess didn't even fight me as she drank down her instant breakfast. (She isn't a breakfast person at all.) We took the obligatory first day of school pictures until my sweet Princess and Prince were begging for no more pics. "Let's just get on with it!" "Can we please go to school now?!"
This year, the twins are in third grade and their classroom is upstairs. As we climbed the stairs and began walking down the hall, Princess started saying, "Mommy, I don't want you to leave me. Please don't leave me." Everything is going to be great. You're going to have a great day and I can't wait to hear all about it when you get home. Here, let me take your picture in front of this third grade bulletin board.
We walk into their classroom and are greeted by their teacher. I'm really excited about their teacher this year. I have gotten to know her a little the last few years of being at the school and I like her a lot. Prince and Princess find their desks and begin putting their things away as I am the dorky mom taking pictures the whole time.
Everyone had a great first day. They were excited to tell Hubby and I all about their friends and all of the new and wonderful things about third grade. It's gonna be a great year and I took everyone to school this morning without incident. We're settling in to a new routine and looking for to all the wonderful adventures that are ahead this year.
