Today is LET’S LOOK!
Once a month, Erika and I do a little link up where we “look” at different aspects of our lives (and then if you blog, you share and link up too!). In keeping with the tradition this year of my Let’s Look prompts being TERRIBLY WRONG, today’s prompt says “your school pics” which I wrote to mean MY school pics from when I was in school. Want to know where I keep all of my old photo albums?
The movers packed those babies away two months ago, and they’re currently sitting in some warehouse in Grand Prairie, TX. So, I can’t share my pics, but I can share my kids’ pics from their first day of “in person” school. Last Thursday, I sent all four kiddos out the door and all at once, this mom, closed a chapter in her life that went by TOO QUICKLY!!!
My 12 years with young kiddos at home just went by in a blink.
The good news?
They were so excited to be back in school!!!!
All dressed up and ready for 6th, 5th, 2nd and kindergarten!
A few driveway pics before we left! The younger three are all in elementary school, but Kensington is now in middle school!
They’ve been obliging me with school pics for so long 🙂 .
All six of us took them up to school for their first day. Miss Madeley was SO READY for kindergarten! In all my years sending off kinder kids, I’ve never seen one more ready.
How sweet is this?! She bounced right on in to the building. All of the kids were so excited, but it made my mama heart happy that my two who were attending new schools were especially excited about it.
After school, I couldn’t wait to hear about their day. It was, of course, very different than “normal” school with lots of changes and safety measures, but really and truly, they were just so excited to be in the building that it didn’t seem to matter. I wasn’t sure, after being home for six months, if they’d struggle getting up the next morning for day two…
…but no ma’am, they did not! All of them were excited and anxious to do it again! How big do these sweet girls look?!
Kensington loved middle school. It was the first time in her life she didn’t have to walk in a line, got to sit where she wanted in the cafeteria, was able to select her own electives…she felt very big.
That face. Ha! Mades couldn’t wait for day two of school!
After two full days back in the routine after a six month break, this is what I found at 8:00 on Friday night…
…she had been so excited to watch The Addams Family but didn’t make it five minutes. Bahaha! How many teachers felt the same way?!
It was a very bittersweet day…
First day of kinder, first grade and preschool in 2015.
…but I’m so excited for my kids.
Babies don’t keep, friends. Babies don’t keep.
Okay, next month on Let’s Look…
