Big fourth graders on their first day of school

Ro left_Ree right_DSC_2070

Ro and Ree love school, but none of us were ready for summer to end this year. The girls say it was the best summer ever, and I have to agree.

Wishing everyone a great back-to-school experience.

PS: Just mentioned that the girls couldn't audition for the school play because it was the upper-grade play and Ree casually and without any thought for the extreme and immediate angst it would cause me replied "Uh, we ARE upper graders now." (sob!)

  2. They are adorable! Fourth grade is a good year. I just can't believe how all these "babies" have grown up so fast. I suppose that's going to happen to my baby, too. ;)

  5. 4th grade?! How in the world are they that old?! Marin is halfway through his 1st week of full days at Kindergarten! He loves his school, but man is it an adjustment to have to be on a schedule! Your 2 are cute as ever!

  8. We're reading the last chapter of Princess Academy tonight. Is it bad that I'm stopping myself from sneaking upstairs to figure out the ending while they are at school?

    1. Hi Katie, they're J World Sunrise backpacks that we get from Amazon. They come in about 30 patterns. (They also have Sundance models, with a padded laptop/iPad pouch in case you're carrying electronics).

  12. Wow. How time flies. Yes summer has been way too short and I'm not looking forward to the normal school routine returning for us either.

    1. Thank goodness we started on a Wednesday so we at least have the weekend to recover and adapt a little more to normal.
