Last night they could hardly sleep. They kept saying "Mom, it's almost like Christmas!" And they were awake by quarter to 7 this morning. WOW!! Too bad this is only going to last about a week. I'm going to be dragging them out of bed with little time to get ready in no time.
But they were right about the Christmas thing- I haven't been shy about the fact that I've been counting down the days until they went back to school. Mostly because of this girl:
She was SO excited to have her own desk in first grade. (In kindergarten they sat at tables) :o)
That's this guy. He's starting Sixth grade. He's still in grade school where we live, but he started today at a brand new school. We decided to try the local charter school and we are super excited about it. (He was already in the garage at this point and way too cool to have his picture taken.)
I'm so proud of these GIANT kids! They sure are growing up fast. Time just keeps slipping by.
Speaking of time, they'll be home in a few minutes! Ah!
