First Day of School 2014-2015

Two Fridays ago we walked to the school so the girls could meet their teachers and enjoy an ice cream social while catching up with some buddies.  I love how Peanut held Pumpkin's hand on the walk over.    Seeing friends, eating ice cream, meeting new teachers…how can you not feel excited about going back to school?

Then on Monday morning we were up bright and early for a special back to school breakfast.  Cinnamon rolls made on the waffle iron and fruit.  
 New dresses were put on, hair done, and new back packs filled and ready to go.
 Pumpkin was really excited to start school at her big sister's school!  

 You can't forget treats for the teachers on the first day!  
 Here we go!  How did this happen?  Both girls off to school!!!!

 Pumpkin did GREAT when we dropped her off.  We picked up one of her best buddies whose Mommy is a teacher (Peanut's teacher last year) on our walk through the halls.  It always help to have a buddy walk in to class with you.  Pumpkin did find me as I was sorting her school supplies and said, "I'm going to be shy, Mommy."  There were no tears though!  We were so proud of her!!!!
 Oh, these girls!  I love them so much!!!!
 We are keeping these two special gals in our prayers this year as they teach our girls and become role models for them.  We have once again struck the jack pot, I do believe with these teachers.
 There were big grins on these faces at pick-up!  We are so proud of them!!!!
Pumpkin's favorite thing about kindergarten so far is that you can play with blocks.
Peanut's favorite thing about 2nd grade so far is that she gets to have reading.

This first week has been so strange.  I am so used to having Pumpkin with me.  She's my side-kick.  I found myself looking for her when I was at preschool to work or at the store.  It's a strange adjustment. To say that I miss them, that's an understatement.  It's good though.  They are turning into amazing young girls.  I am excited to watch them bloom and grow even more this year.  I do want to keep them little for a lot longer though!
