First Day of School

Today was the first day of the school for the girls!  Harper was super excited and couldn't wait for this day and Handley was happy about her teacher and her class, but still wanted a bit more summer.  Both girls picked out outfits that would be appropriate for PE and also had me paint their nails. Last night Harper had the hardest time falling asleep because she just was so happy about 2nd grade!

This morning everyone was all smiles.  They got up happy, put on the outfits they had picked out and ate a great breakfast before heading to the bus stop.

I think one of the hardest things about being a mom is sending them to school on the first day and wondering all 7 1/2 hours how they are doing? I wonder if their teachers are warm and welcoming, if they are making new friends and who they are sitting with at lunch.  The absolute best part of my day was when I saw their smiling faces hopping of the bus this afternoon and then listening all about the fun they had.

Then we hit the ground running.  They quickly worked on their homework assignments and got changed so we could rush to tumbling, we ate a quick dinner out at Zaxby's then went to Handley's cheer practice and finally back home to get ready for day 2.  It's a crazy fun time, but knowing they both had a great 1st day and knowing how loving their teachers are makes me know it will be a great year for both of them.
