Back to School

I had to do it. I had to do a back to school post. Despite the fact that every other mom blogger in the universe has already done one. After all, this is a mommy blog and I have to document milestones, right? Right?

I'm pretty sure my girls were the last kids in the world to finally go back to school.

But go back they did and they were SO excited. I am so thankful that both of my girls have a great love of school and head out the door everyday ready for a full day of fun and learning.

So, adieu my sweet girls. I'll miss you. Remember I love you, and know that this time away from each other is good for all of us (said with a smile). Work your little fannies rear ends off and take the year by storm. I know you will!




The winner of the Twisted Silver Giveaway will be posted tomorrow morning. Thanks for your patience.

they are SO beautiful! i always loved the first day of school. my mom took a picture every year, and my sisters and i love looking back at them now! we always had our "first day of school" outfit and backpack. when we were younger, we always took some flowers to our teacher from our garden. luckily, our mom didn't make us do that in high school :)

girlytwins said...

Your girls are so gorgeous Angie. Your boys are gonna have their work cut out for them when they get older :) It is so wonderful that they love school. I always loved going to school too.

And...The singing video was at our fair. It was really cool. They had an entire section for little kids that was free. Petting zoos, farm adventures, pig races, etc. They had a stage set up for little kids to go up & sing. The girls hammed it up. They was a huge crowd by the time they got off stage. They each sang away. The video is of Charlotte but we have a similar Addee video. They bowed at the end when everyone clapped :)

Kimberly said...

Your girls are beautiful! I hope they have good teachers! Thanks for reading my blog so regularly. And, thanks for all the encouragement! It is so nice to know that other people believe in what I am doing, too.

Mark and Kiss said...

Cecily R said...

You're right. You HAD to do a back to school post. Just look at those pretty girls!! How could you NOT post their first day of school glow?

Good N Crazy said...

My excuse for being late on the back to school thing but still doing one (at least I plan to)..is moving of course with exactly 4 days before school started! I found a good idea for how to do it though, and it's for the kids right? THAT's why we blog right?

Taya said...

Wow! Your school does start late! It's nice to see a mommy blogger that had kiddos older that 3 or 4 years old. Sometimes I feel like the old woman on the block! :) Maybe we can swap tween stories sometime!

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

Your girls are so beautiful. I hope the school year is very good to them. Cora is having a hard time with the full day thing.

Kristin said...

AAAACCCKKKK! Too many comments to scroll through!!!!

Sorry. Had to vent. The girls are darling. Isn't Garrett in Kindy this year? What about pre-school?
