First Day of School, 2011-2012

Today was the first day of school. C is in 5th grade, K in 7th. J missed the cut-off to start Kindergarten by less than a month. Oh well. He is in Mom Preschool and loving it. :)

C was in Kindergarten when our elementary opened its doors. Now, he and his classmates are the first class to make it all the way through the school. Pretty cool.

The bus stops were changed this year....further away and I cannot see the stops. Makes my Mommy-Heart a little nervous, but they are big kids.

This picture is C before he left for the bus stop (he did NOT want me walking him to the bus stop!

My two kiddos:
K before going to her bus stop almost an hour later....and, wow!, she looks so old to me today!
I have to say that this is the first year in quite a few that S has not gone to school with us on the first day. I know she is definitely old enough not to, but we did miss her.

A tradition continued.....first day of school cookies. YUM!
Another tradition (as of last year at least)....Yogurtland. We did this for our Family Home Evening tonight. It was fun.

C and K, I hope you have a wonderful year! Do your best, be nice to everyone, smile even when you aren't enjoying life, and always remember that your Mom loves you!!!
