First day of school!

It's that time of year again! Time to go to bed early, set our alarm clocks, and go back to school. I can hardly believe I've had a full summer. It went so quickly. The girls were pretty excited and very nervous this morning. Halle said, "I don't really feel like eating breakfast." Which is huge for her; she's normally got a hollow leg in the morning. Alyssa had the same teacher for 1st and 2nd grade, so she was extra nervous this morning knowing that it was going to be ALL new. They had butterflies all the way to school, but once they got there and saw familiar faces everything was great!

Halle's first day of 1st grade. She is so excited that she gets to eat lunch at school. Isn't that lunchbox adorable?

Alyssa's first day of 3rd grade. She and Bailey still get to be together, so no worries there.

Look at all that gear. I felt like I was sending them off on a trip. Their backpacks are as big as they are!

How fun! I love the first day of school and all of the nervousness. The girls look so cute. Were they up all night trying to decide what to wear?

Your girls are just too adorable! I love the back-to-school outfits and the lunch bags are perfect! It kind of makes me miss the old days of the Thermos!

You'll have to blog a first day recap!

I can't believe that I didn't think to take pictures of Gehrig's first day. Maybe I'll rember Damian's--he starts on Wednesday. Glad to hear the girls are having a great time. Gehrig's loving it too!
