First Day of School

A few years ago my mom and I were at Sam's and we noticed they had a ton of those plastic bodies that the swimsuits come on. Of course we needed them for something and they have sat in my closet ever since. The girls found them and dressed them with their school uniforms so that they would be ready to go in the morning. At least they are being used now!

When I woke the girls up this morning Abs started chanting "First day of school! First Day of school!" Junior was up really early this morning and the girls flew out of bed to get dressed and were ready to go well before it was time. They can eat breakfast at school so they opted for that and Junior and I stayed with them. We had practiced Ab's lunch ID number and when she got up there she got confused and couldn't remember it and didn't believe Em, who tried to help.

They ate breakfast and then I dropped them off at their classrooms. They were both so excited and couldn't wait. Can't wait to hear how they both did!

On a side note, I sent DH a pic of the kids on the cell phone so that he can see them ready to go to school. He has never made it to the first day of school for either one. He'll be gone next year too.

I see mischief in Abs eyes. It will be interesting to see how she fares.

Wow, it's amazing how big the kids are. Emily looks just like you when I met you. I hope we can get together sometime soon. :) XOXO Jessica from Colorado!
