BACK to SCHOOL



today was the first day of school. katelyn started 2nd grade, and annie started kindergarten. we were all very ready for school to start. last night after the girls showered and got all ready for bed derek gave them each a father's blessing. i'm so glad i have a husband who can do that for our family. the blessings were very sweet, and they calmed some of the nerves i was having about turning my sweet girls over to the public school system!!!! both the girls wanted to go into the school alone...of course! i told annie i wanted to walk with her on her first day, but i let her lead the way. she was so excited...she had a hard time falling asleep last night. a couple of kids in her class were crying when their parents left and when annie gave me a hug goodbye she asked, "why are they crying?" apparently she had no tears on what she considers the best day ever!!! samantha and i have been having a very noneventful day. she's got an ear infection, but i don't really think that has affect how are day would have gone!! every now and then she asks where katie and annie are...she's going to have to learn to entertain herself a little bit! i shed a few tears after dropping the girls off, but i'm over it now!! it's going to make things a little easier around here, especially after the baby is born.

Your girls look so cute on their first day! Enjoy your time {at least for a few minutes before BB comes!}

School doesn't start for us until Monday. I am really looking forward to it. I will only have Zaden at home and I'm pretty sure that it will be a bit more peaceful. I usually cry on the first day and then life goes on. Those were very cute pictures you took of your girls. Have an awesome school year.

The girls outfits are way cute. I bet annie was thrilled to get to go to school all day like katie.

Sam looks hilarious in the background of annie's picture. Mom will be there in less than a week to keep Sam company, so that's good. :)

p.s. I had a dream last night that you were dilated to a 3!

Why did I think Annie was in first grade? Did she go to all day preschool last year? They both look cute and very grown up.

Oh, how exciting. I think I will be the one shedding tears also and not the other way around. My girls are way too excited for school around here. Kinley keeps saying Aria isn't going to school since hers is called "kindergarten" and she is since she is going to "preschool". They get into big fights over this. And yes we are loving having our own place now.

Angie you have such a cute family! I found you and Kristina while doing a little blog stalking. Tell your mom and dad that I said "hi."
