Yesterday was the first day of school…and we all made it through with happy faces!
Smith woke up very chatty (he’s already SUCH a chatty kid but he was EXTRA talkative!) and Kensington woke up excited but with a bit of nervousness too. Overall, the energy at our house was happy and optimistic. It was their first days of 3rd grade and 2nd grade. And you know what I thought all morning long? Where did my babies go? I swear, I blinked and time hopped them forward. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I had two under two? It feels like it.
We got up, everyone got dressed, they ate breakfast and then we headed outside for our annual pictures…
They picked out their own clothes for the day and for some reason, this shirt made me laugh. A lot 🙂 .
She has apples on her outfit…because, hello? It was the first day of school! 🙂
Sister picture! Please let me read Madeley’s mind for you…she’s wondering why she was hustled out of bed so quickly, dressed and not given her scrambled eggs? She was perplexed by the whole thing. Ha!
I mean…she seriously wanted her eggs.
Four kids ready to conquer the day. Oh how I love these four so much! They’re all so different and all so special in their own way!
Let’s do this school year!
Our annual backpack pics…
Summer is officially over.
We all piled into the golf cart and headed off to school.
In we go! Kensington turned around at one point and told me she was nervous. Sweet girl! I just want her to have such a great year!
We dropped off our 2nd grader…
…and then our 3rd grader.
Whew! Why is that so tough? It just is! After that, the little girls and I headed to breakfast on our town square with friends…
Our annual first day of school breakfast is always one of my favorite things. I just love these ladies so much!!
And then…there were two. They were loving all the attention 🙂 .
We wrapped up our morning with a trip to Hobby Lobby…because IT’S JUST ABOUT FALL Y’ALL!
Well, I’m finishing this post at 1:41 PM. In about an hour, I will go get those two big kids from school and I’m hoping they had the BEST day! I cannot wait to hear all about it. xo
