Monday was the first day of school for my sweethearts – my oldest is a first-grader now:

He chose a green-striped shirt, brown shorts, orange laced shoes, red-strapped backpack and bright blue jacket 😀

We are lucky in that he has some of the same classmates from last year as well as a friend he’s known since he was 4 months old.

My little one is going to kindergarten in another school:

He’s all about dinosaurs. It’s a very rushed morning for us, dropping off my oldest first then racing to my youngest’s school, where there is virtually no parking. His teacher, thank goodness, understands it’s out of my hands and has told me it’s ok for us to be a few minutes late. Thank you, thank you, sweet understanding teacher!

I will be volunteering in my oldest’s class – I’m so excited!!!
