First Day of School

Everyone up early... in their new clothes, new shoes, new school bags, and huge SMILES!!!!



Walking to the bus stop! They were running, I had to ask them to slow down to get a picture...that's a good sign....running to the school bus!

See you at 3:45...
In the meantime...it was back to Lulu and I, partners in crime! We headed over to a neighbor's for coffee and carbs and then off to our annual "WooHoo, BooHoo" back to school celebration. WooHoo for hooray the kids are back in school and BooHoo for those sending little ones for the first time! We didn't have many BooHooers this year!
I am VERY happy to report that everyone had a great first day of school. Emma stared 2nd Grade. I love her teacher!!!! She was Caroline's teacher last year and I think it will be a PERFECT fit for our Emmie. She was happy to be reunited with her friends and made a few new friends, too!!!
Caroline started at a new school (the intermediate school 3-6)...she was nervous about finding her way to her "Pod" but was assisted by one of our neighborhood girls. WHEW!!! When the kids start at the intermediate school they are all mixed up again into new pods. She was excited to find some old friends in her pod and her very best friend is in her class...total fluke...THANK THE GOOD LORD got small favors! Caroline's teacher is young and energetic!
I think we are in for a good year!

They are too cute! I love those little smiling faces, and their clothes are adorable. You are adorable, too.

Love the woohoo boohoo party! - what a fun tradition. Between your neighborhood and what goes on at the beach with the generations of friends who get together, you have some fabulous get-togethers in your life! Glad you had such a nice day.

I love seeing all your girls and their cuteness! (being the mom of boys, I have NONE of that!)
Also - I have that same cape madras skirt :)

So much fun! We have a Yahoo, Boohoo breakfast for all kindergarten parents. The part I like is that it gets the parents out of the room and distracted so I can focus on my little ones. Usually it isn't the kids crying... the parents! :) Glad you are looking forward to a great year.
