First Day of School

Today was the first day of school - first grade for Grace and pre-kindergarten for Annabelle. Last night we had a celebratory dinner (pasta with no sauce), ice cream and dance party to get ready. Their outfits were all picked out, backpacks were packed, and lunches were made. They were both excited, but slightly anxious.
MAMA: Grace, can't you just stand still and stop doing all these crazy poses so I can take a normal picture???

GRACE: Mom, I am a poser. I pose, that is just what I do.

MAMA: I see. Well, can we just get a little pose?

GRACE: Fine.
Annabelle was a bit nervous - this year she is at a new school, away from all her friends and the teachers she knew and loved. But she had a good time. Both girls were a tired when they got home, but are ready for day two.

Michael, Faith and I went to Target to celebrate. Michael may not be starting school, but he is attending potty boot camp at home with me. We picked out some big boy underwear and some pull-ups for nighttime. This should be interesting...wish us luck.

The girls look so adorable. I love Grace's poser analysis. She sure is cheeky!

Yes, cheeky is a very good word to describe her : )
