School Is In!!

I'm not going to lie...I am happy!  I know some moms boo hoo when their babies leave the nest for kindergarten, and I must admit, there is a part of me that feels very guilty for not sharing the same feelings.  I just don't.  As much as I love having littles, I am happy that they are growing up.  I am happy to have just a little bit of time to catch up on some things around the house that have been on hold...forever!!  Of course, it doesn't hurt that the girls were just as excited as I was :)

Here they are:
They definitely make these uniforms look a little cuter :)  Wesleigh was completely in charge this morning.  She spent the morning re-assuring Gracie that she would be in the room next door and that they were going to have a great day.  The school has a sports theme this year, so everything has a ball on it.  Last night, Wesleigh said "Kindergarten is going to be boring...just baseballs and footballs and basketballs!".  I told her that those were just the decorations, that she was going to learn to read and write more words and do math.  She lit up and said "Why didn't anyone tell me?!?!"  SO cute!!


Gracie really did not need the extra re-assuring from Wesleigh...although she always feels more comfortable when she's around.  It will be interesting to see how she does in a different class from Wesleigh.  She depends on Wesleigh alot.  It's one of the reasons I decided to split them up.  I think they're both going to grow so much this year!





 Here it comes!!!

They never even looked back until the bus driver told them to wave goodbye :)





They'll be home in about 15 minutes.  I can't wait to hear all their stories about their day!!

Hello,
This year I have decided to stop lurking about and comment on my favorite blogs. I love the girls shoes. They look so comfy. What brand are they? I would love to buy a pair.

Oh they are too cute! They look so grown up in their uniforms.

And thank you for the update on Trevor! I was just thinking about him this weekend.

Oh my goodness. They are such cute doll babies in their uniforms. I saw Day 2 pics on Facebook and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their red shoes and knee high socks too. They can even rock the boring school uniform. Adorable!! Can't wait to read the post of what they thought of their first day of Kindergarten. That cracked me up that Wesleigh thought it was going to be all about sports. LOL

Of course they look adorable in their uniforms. Oh my goodness I can't believe they road the bus like big girls. Can't wait to see how their day went. :)

They rock those uniforms!! Too cute!!
