First Day of School!

Look at my girls! Today was the first day of school! Kali started kindergarten... Megan started third grade! I have never seen soooo many crying moms in all my life. I mean come on... it's school... they come home in 8 hrs or less... why the tears? I had no tears... no sadness... only excitement about what the year was going to bring... and maybe a little dread about how Kali was going to handle all the rules and regulations of kindergarten. I called Robert when I left the school to check if I was a bad mom... I mean if soooo many moms were crying maybe I am insensitive or something... he assured me that it was ok to be ready for them to go back to school!

I did see the twins today... apparently CPS was called but conveniently every time they showed up the family was gone from the house. Hopefully they will show up now that school has started... especially since the girls are expected at school and CPS can see them there. I was relieved to see that the girls seemed to be fine... but I am a bit concerned about the efficiency of CPS if in the past 2 weeks they couldn't manage to track down some 9 year old twins.

Anyway... I know that school doesn't start until tomorrow for many of you... hope your kids have a great day!

I was just looking at the pics of the girls... I bet the person bending over behind Kali would appreciate it if I cropped her bottom out of that picture! OOPS!

I didn't cry when my oldest started kindergarten. I was loving it! I there with the camera flashing a million pictures, while all the other mom's were crying. I was excited for her new journey. You're a great mom!

They look so happy to be back! Especially Kali. I bet she has a blast. I didn't notice the bum until you mentioned it. :)

Such pretty girls - and I'm just glad that I wasn't the one bending over behind Kali because, well, it would've ruined the picture for sure. :-)
