Another “first day of school” has come and gone. So hard for me to wrap my brain around my girls being in 3rd and 5th grade! I taught 5th grade when we first moved to San Diego. I had Ellie in the middle of my last year teaching and remember taking her to my classroom to meet my students. Such a tiny newborn with all of those big 5th graders. And now she is one of those big 5th graders. I cried doing her hair the first day. She was making me laugh – saying something funny – and it just struck me how grown up she looked and sounded. I always think I’m going to be fine on the first day of school (especially since by the end of summer I am ready for them to go back!) but then the first day comes and I’m not fine. I come home to a quiet house and tear up every year.
This little one was SO excited for preschool to start. He was racing out the door so fast that I only had time to snap two pictures of him and this was the best of the two. He’s at that fun age where you say “smile” and never know what you’re going to get. :) So glad he has one more year of preschool. I’m going to be a hot mess next year when he starts Kindergarten!
I’m excited to share our new system for organizing outfits for school! It’s pretty much the old system with a minor tweak.
There are six slots so there was room for Saturday. I love this because my girls take gymnastics on Saturday mornings and now we have a place for their gymnastic clothes to call home.
