Back to School!

After a summer of fun it is already time to head back to school.
Now I've got 3 kids going to school together all day long.
Em, Max, & Abbie were all excited to be heading back to all the excitement that school brings.
And of course I had to have some quick pictures before they were off.
Lucy had her back pack on too as we dropped them off.

Is it possible that she could already be in 5th grade?

Em's fabulous friends all lined up just before school starts.
This is the real reason she likes school.

I lost Max as we entered the school doors before school started. Later I found him sitting in his desk ready for his big day. He went and lined up all by himself outside because he knew that was the rule.

Abbie was soo excited to get to eat lunch in the lunch room this year and be a big 1st grader. What will I do at lunch time without my little lunch buddy? And Lucy won't know what to do without her big sister.

Even my little Lucy started school today.
Her first day of preschool and she might have been more excited than all of them combined!
I thought that preschoolers were usually a little hesitant about starting school on the first day. Not this girl, she didn't even care to say goodbye. She was off and ready to finally be going to school.
Heaven help her teacher! I don't think she has it in her to hold still for 1 minute. Good Luck Miss Misti!

Lucy and Millie just before leaving.

How lucky is she to be going to school with her 4 cute little neighbor friends?
Millie, Meagan, Brooklyn, Sophie, & Lucy Lou
I can just imagine the drama these girls will be causing.

All in all the first day was a success for the most part.
Emilee said that 5th grade will be a lot harder than 4th and that she will have a lot of homework.
Max said that he had the nicest teacher in the whole school but he missed having his friends in his class.
Abbie said that lunch was gross and that she wants me to pack her a lunch from now on. And that she didn't get in trouble one time on the first day.
Lucy said she liked playing outside and eating a Popsicle. And that if I kiss her hand it will go all the way to her heart. This is the crown she made, and on it, it tells her favorite food. When I asked her what her favorite food was she told me a bottle. (And she is dead serious.)
