First Day of Pre-school





Today I dropped my babies off for their first day of their school career! Yes, I have been excited, yes even counting down the minutes to be honest because it has been kind of rough here lately. (more on that in another post) But when it came down to it today I was a little teary. Sage keeps reminding me over and over she is not my baby anymore, and is often telling us our baby is in China. Mark is ignoring that I can promise you! I was nervous of how Mavery might do, but she was very excited and when you have your sister holding your hand, that just makes everything better! They will go 4 - 1/2 days a week and they get sports training during class. Energy burned is a good thing! We know that this will be very good for Mavery and in turn good for all of us. It IS hard to believe though, they are big enough for SCHOOL??? Wow! Can you even imagine that poor sweet teacher and my twin tornadoes! The good news was they came home with no incident reports, we were a little worried they might! ;-) They came home all smiles and are ready to go back tomorrow! And the teacher was still smiling when I came so I take that as a good thing!

I saw them after Awana's tonight and asked them how they liked school - they were all smiles and kisses! That's a good thing!

They look adorable in their outfits!! Alex starts Pre-K on Monday and Scarlett will be in the 2's class two mornings a week. I hear you on counting the days...Alex is super excited, so that makes me happy!
