Anna was so excited to start kindergarten today. Adam and Isabel were a little sad - they don't start preschool for 3 weeks. Note to self: let the preschool know just how hard it is for the little ones to wait that long for their turn.

Yesterday we celebrated the new school year with a special dinner and dessert, followed by a quick fashion show so Anna (and of course Isabel and Adam) could show off their new school clothes. Grammie and Grandpa Butch joined us and Grammie made Anna some adorable new bows for school. After the twins went to bed, Ben gave Anna a father's blessing for a great school year.

This morning it was hard to get out of the house, and the school was a crazy zoo of cars and kids. We need to get there earlier to avoid the extreme traffic. But we are excited for this new phase!

And, my shining Mom moment came when I went to a short PTA welcome meeting and discovered that kindergartners eat lunch at school. Good thing I stayed for that, I had to go home and make a lunch! Poor Anna would have been the only one without anything to eat.

Yay for kindergarten!

Ohhh, she looks so cute!
And...wha??!? Kindergartners eating lunch? I totally wouldn't have known that either. Seems like they should have put that in the paperwork they send you or something. That will be fun for her though.
I'm excited to hear how everything went. :)

so exciting!! Actually I remember now that for a week I sent Avalon to school with just lunch. The 2nd week the teacher sent home a note saying that we also had to provide a morning snack and so far the other kids had been sharing with Avalon. opps. I had no idea! lol.

I cant wait to see the twins first day at preschool. Nolan doesnt start till Septemeber 8th and Avalon starts this wednesday. So I will see how that goes. lol.

she is so beautiful! She looks so grown up. I would have never guessed kondergartbers ate lunch at school either.

She is getting so big! I'm glad you stayed for the PTA meeting. I can't wait to go to ours. =o)

Our school sent home a letter with the class schedule and lunch times, but our preschool is also full day. Had it been half day I wouldn't have guessed that they eat there.

I remember Ryan always dying to go to school with Haley. I know how you feel about your twins.

Good luck with the new school year!!

She's so grown up! So sweet! Can't believe she's already in kindergarten.

Ah, such a big deal! Kindergarten!

Her outfit is so stinking cute, by the way.

Thank you for coming by and supporting the LLF with me. I appreciate it so much.

She has got to be one of the CUTEST kids. I hate that my little babies are in school. Makes me feel old!
