First days of school are big in our house. We’ve celebrated them for as long as I can remember. Ryan’s first day was extra special. He was so proud to follow his big brother onto the school bus.
And so totally irritated to learn that Sean had followed the bus so he could walk Ryan to his classroom!
As the boys have grown they’ve lost their enthusiasm for the first day! That’s what happens when high school hits. I’ve tried to make them stand still for a picture, but they’ll have nothing to do with it. I guess that’s why I threw all my first day excitement at MK this year! I’ve learned to soak up these special days, as there will come a time when they won’t be so thrilled to head back into the classroom!
So this morning we got up extra special early, as we had quite the to-do list.
with a bow…
Then smiles on the front porch…
There was a lot of excitement as we headed to her new school!
There were old friends to be hugged…
And new friends to be made…
I couldn’t be more excited for her to take on the adventures of school. As a pre-primary student in one of the most innovative school’s I’ve ever seen, I know a world of possibilities lay at her feet.
So here’s to a new school year! Let the learning begin!
Speaking of Back-to-School….
I’ll be appearing this evening on HLN at 5:15 eastern time to talk back-to-school tips with a national audience. Tune in or DVR if you can! I’ll post a link to the appearance below when it’s available!
