First Day of School 2013

Annndddd…..that’s a wrap folks! Summer is over! Where in the world did it go? Am I the only one who feels like the summer has flown by? And we didn’t even do anything exciting….well, that is if you don’t consider launching a fall line exciting. :(

ANYWAY, I can’t say this was the most thrilling summer ever, but I do think we had a wonderful time as a family. We took little day trips, enjoyed our time together, tried to sleep in and take every day as it comes. I’m so thankful for my family and our beautiful life!

So today was the day all our fun and sleeping in ended. The kids were excited, especially Evy. She COULD NOT wait to get to school and play. She loves school! Oh boy, I adore her!

Jake was a bit bummed out that summer was over, but happy to be with his friends again. This kids…such a ham!

The two of them together…such a mug shot!

It’s funny, I’m so used to fussing over Jake’s first day, but I’m realizing that 1st graders don’t get fussed over. We literally watched him walk to the door and we waved goodbye…but Evy, well, we got to hang out in her classroom, talk to parents and the teachers and just get comfortable with the whole new year. It was so nice.

We have met so many wonderful friends through school. It’s been such a blessing. And all Evy’s friends from last year are also doing preschool/4 together this year. Here is Evy’s friend Gabe… we love Gabe! He’s a little man!

This is Gabe’s mom, Natalie.

These preschool moms I have met over the last couple years are such a treasure. This will be our third year that our kids are all together {most of the moms have kids Jake’s age} and I have to be honest and say these ladies are such wonderful blessings to my life. I love them all!

And Evy loves her teacher Mrs. E. She was so excited to give her a hug!

I thought Evy would be sorry to see me go, since she was so insitant that I hang out in the class for a bit….I tried to say goodbye, BUT….

She was too busy with Mr Potato Head. Isn’t that awesome?!?

After we left Evy we made it over to Jake {sheesh good thing I only have two kids to tell you about, clearly I have a lot to say about the first day of school! ha}. We caught up with him just as the whistle blew and he was lining up. I was able to snag a quick hug.

But it didn’t last long, he was too ready to go….

Now isn’t that a perfect photo? The mom…hanging onto her son for dear life, while he’s taking off for adventure and is screaming, “let go!”. Ha. No, that didn’t really happen, but maybe that’s how my mind thought it was.

ANYWAY….

We were allowed in the classroom for two seconds only to snap a quick photo of our kids in their seats. Ummm…two things:

1. He is sitting next to the girl who he had a crush on last year. Can you see the excitement?

2. He is in the front row. Smart teacher!

He got to pose for two seconds with his buddies….

Love those kids. Thankful they have each other.

Well guys, that’s it. Our first day of school. How was your first day??
