Yesterday finally came. The first day of school.
As much as Alex pretended he didn't want summer to end, he was ready and the excitement of starting 3rd grade was a huge incentive. He looked so big and so...3rd grade:
Liberty also Started Kindergarten but due to large classes, her first day was 12-2 and she doesn't even go back until Monday. She was very upset that she couldn't ride the bus and had to wait another 4 days for a "real" school day, but the excitement was infectious and she managed to ham it up while we waited for Alex's bus:
They even managed to get along and pose for a nice picture together:
The bus finally arrived and I waved goodbye (tearful, I admit. I am such a sap):
Then we took Liberty to meet her Teacher, Miss Sweet (not her real name..but should be). She looked all sorts of adorable (insert multiple attempts not to cry -> Here) getting down to the business of being a Kindergartener (I am pretty sure that's a word..but spell check is saying it's spelled wrong...so maybe it's not!):
We even remembered a pic with her school sign:
We arrived home shortly before Alex's bus arrived, so I had just enough time to make the new year's first batch of After School Cookies:
And the school day ended in smiles, good moods and with a huge 'Thank you mom! YUMMMY!':
What more could you ask for in a first day?
