So, today was the first day of school. Maia and Mason were both very excited to get back to school and see their friends. We have heard great things about both of their teachers so I think we're in for a good year.
To be honest, I was a little worried that Maia wouldn't let me put in her characteristic hair bows for her first day of fourth grade but she didn't bat an eye. Is it so wrong that I love it that my oldest child is still just an innocent little girl?
She came home super-thrilled that she had Media on the first day and that there was a new sequel to one of her favorite books in the library. She's had her nose in it all night. That's my girl!
Mason ran halfway to the school. He was just so excited! He loved walking with the whole family. Daddy went to work late to make the traditional trek with us.
Mason came home happily reporting that for the first time in his three years of school, he does NOT eat lunch at ten thirty in the morning!
These faux pupils would not leave the house until they, too, were wearing backpacks. They also insisted on getting their pictures taken with pieces of paper, just like they'd seen Maia and Buddy do.
