The long awaited day!!

Last Monday, Maggie and Molly had their first day of preschool. 
It was a HUGE day for Miss Maggie Jean
She watched her sister get on the bus and go to school for two years. 
She was so itching to go!
She talked about this day for months. Literally!

She picked out the perfect  outfit weeks the night before and was up before the sun.
Molly was like "what's the big deal sis?"

Molly was saying "There's the bus! There's the bus!" Maggie was grinning from ear to ear, squeezing Molly's hand!

Sweet Maggie ran onto the bus.  She didn't even turn around so I could get a picture.

Buckled the ladies in. No tears. No fears.  Just all smiles!

Look at that happy girl! She could hardly contain her excitement!

Molly's para sent home a note that made Mike and I laugh out loud! She writes: 
"I am so happy that I get to work with Molly this year.  I just love her so much; she's the best! She is such a hoot!  Today while we were going potty, she fell on her butt and said, "Owie butt", turned around, lifted her dress and said, "kiss it!"

Gotta. Love. That. Girl!!

Molly recite's the ABC's...

In Molly fashion....

It was quite a while ago that this video took place; back in March is my best guess.

Mike called out to me that Molly was being funny and reciting her ABC's. I just had to grab the flip camera and to record such a moment but he reminded me that she had already done it twice and was NOT going to cooperate once again. You know, for the THIRD time!

I find this sooooo funny that I just had to share Molly pausing to recite her colors and to tell daddy to "stop, stop"! And yet, still able to verbalize her ABC's...

I LOVE this little girl and all that she has learned....

Gav's First Day of Third Grade

So here is he is!
 Mr Gavin.  Ready for the THIRD grade!
Oh my goodness!

We started school a week later this year due to construction.
It was a perfect day; 86 degrees and sunny.
Gavin got THE BEST teacher EVER this year, Mr R!

Just look at that smile! He couldn't wait to get those new shoes on and head to the bus stop!

The tradition continues with pic's of the kids...
 Gav with the ladies...All with bright shiny shoes! Love it!

 With his BFF's Henry and Jayden

Koop's and Gav; Best Cousins!

...And he's off!

It's gonna be a GREAT year! I can just feel it!

(Austin snuck out while I was at the bus stop so I missed his first day of school pic! I think it was intentional. Not so cool to have a Juniors pic taken)
