first day of school, 2011
And BAM! just like that summer vacation is over.
First day of school went off without a hitch.
It did take some effort to wake everyone up, but they're so very cute!
Everyone dressed by 7:45! Yay Mom!
And ready for pictures on the front porch by 8:15, properly accessorized. A substantial amount happened between 7:45 and 8:15, trust me. This year will be a test in efficiency.
What a difference another year makes. Guthrie started her third year at Quad City Montessori and the second year in the same classroom. She knows about half her class and obviously her beloved teachers. A big hug at the door and a wave to her friends and she was off. And I only teared up for like 5 seconds - ok maybe a couple of minutes, but whatever.
When I picked her up she was exhausted and happy. What more can you ask for?
