First Day of Kindergarten for Claire!

Our sweet girl had her first day of kindergarten yesterday. She loved it! While sending my baby off to school tugged--no, yanked--at my heartstrings, the smiles and excitement coming from her this week only cemented the fact that she is ready! She set out her backpack, chose her outfit, and asked for "lots of curls" in preparation for the big day. She came together quite nicely!

Here she is at the school. This is as far as she would let me go with her. And that was after I insisted on driving her on her first day. She was ready to say goodbye in the driveway at home.

I made the siblings join her for one picture. This is the only year that all 3 of them will be at the same school.

ONE picture is all Paige would allow. But Spencer gave me another smile, and then walked his sister to her class!

First Day of School 2013

Well, here they are! The annual first day of school pictures. It's another big year for all of my baby ducks. Nicole started her first year at the High School. A sophomore this year, she has plenty of mixed feelings about growing up. But ultimately she came home from her first day with the "big kids" and declared that she really loved how laid back everything was and that the teachers treat the students like adults. 

Corinne is in 8th grade which means she also moved schools to the Jr. High. She was super nervous about getting lost but it ended up not being so bad because when she DID get lost it was with a boy and when they finally found the Orchestra room the teacher didn't even spare them a glance. So, success!

Poor Paigie-bug! Today is her first day of school because she spent yesterday in bed with a yucky stomach bug. She was so sad to miss the first day but she was up bright and early today ready to make up for lost time! She's in 5th grade this year--the oldest at the Elementary school.

Spencer was up bright and early yesterday ready for his first day of 2nd grade! He packed his new backpack so carefully and filled his water bottle then stood at the door asking when we could go. It was a long 50 minutes. He got stung by a wasp that was hiding on the playground waiting for the students to come back and play--but he said he didn't even cry. He just got some ice to put on it and then went back out!

Stay tuned for next week's big "First Day of Kindgerten"!!
