And I think I'm in denial. I'm not ready for school to start, but did that stop Miss A from beginning 2nd grade yesterday and little Miss C started Kindergarten today?? Oh, no it didn't! Oh my... I can't believe that little pip squeak is starting school already! I'm definitely excited for them, but am feeling a wee bit blue over it.
In fact, today's post will highlight some pictures I took of them (though originally I was going to post pics from their birthdays from last month... last month! Oh, how I'm behind!) And did I mention that we just arrived home from Portland, Maine? No? Well, it's true! But that'll have to wait for another post, because here are my babies that are growing up way too fast for this mama...
Miss A. Oh, what a wonderful, strong, brave, tenderhearted girl you are!
I could just pinch her cheeks! (And do quite often.)
And little Miss C... She was so excited and ready for school today. Watch out world.
Miss J decided she wanted to be part of the fun, so she donned her giraffe backpack and walked Miss C to her class.
Love this quote in the front of the school. And don't you just love that mosiac artwork? It makes me want to grab the closest tile and hammer and start on one of our own!
Yes, she is entering a new stage in her life. It's a bit overwhelming letting my daughters go in the world where they'll be exposed to outside influence. Though of course I'll continue to teach them correct principles and lessons at home, I hope I've prepared them enough thus far for this new school adventure. Us mamas have our work cut out for us, don't we? But bring it on. Nothing beats being a mother. Nothing.
And though Miss J hasn't started school yet, she did have her first dance lesson yesterday!
I know it's not the best picture (her hair is totally overexposed), but it's all she'd give me yesterday. :)
Oh, these three little munchkins of mine... I love them dearly.
