First day of School

It has been a whole year since I've posted. Where has the time gone? After a fun and busy summer, the kids are back into the swing of things starting today.
I'm so excited for this year. Nicholas has a teacher that is new to our school but has experience at the middle school level which means she will have him ready for 6th grade. I know its a year away but I always want the kids to be prepared! He's excited about school this year too which also makes it nice.
Isabella has always been my school lover. She started counting down the days to go back to school at 63 days! She loves homework, her friends, and this year, she LOVES her teacher.She couldn't wait to get there this morning!!!
Now my sweet Gabby seemed excited this morning but when it was time to separate from her sister, me or Jeffrey, she wasn't real thrilled. Her eyes welled up with tears and when I left her sitting in her big desk with her name tag and purple play doh, she was a little sad. I'm just hoping it dosn't take her til Martin Luther King Day to stop crying (like her Kindergarten year)!!!
I didn't get many pictures of Nicholas this morning because he started his first day with Safety patrol. He was with the Vice Principal at 8:05 and helped the parents and students navigate the school yard and find their classrooms. My big responsible boy!!!
