The Big First Day of School Post

It's a whilwind that first day of school.  But I love it.  The excitement, the newness, the anticipation of a great year ahead.  I can't imagine my life without the "first day of school" every year.

The girls had "first day french toast" with fresh berry butter.

Along with a sweet note from daddy!

About to take some shots of Anna just before she left. And Abigail suddenly got sad.

Seeing me in a photo with them makes it ever harder to believe that shes twelve.

5

Love that smile!

6

And that joy!

But of all the photos it's this next one that makes my heart smile the most. Maybe because we weren't trying for a picture and this is just the 'way she looked' about to walk to school.

With her shinny new lunchbox.

Walking a sixth grader to her right spot when you're a big seventh grader sure makes the leaving better.

And then I concentrate on the next part of my morning.

Mommy, I want to jump too.

But I like her twirling the best.

Thank goodness for third grade teachers with love oozing out of them. Oh yea, it's going to be a GREAT year... I can tell from this one photo!

And then I go home and clean up breakfast, do the laundry, and watch the clock... until I can hold them both again.
