And she is off....

Not quite as bad as last year. She woke up at 7:00 instead of 6 something. Jamie made her pancakes and she was ready to walk down to the bus at 7:30 (the bus does not come until 8:05). I successfully stalled her until 7:50 and then we headed down. Last night she was nervous--this morning she was excited.





I think she is the cutest first grader for sure!!!!!


















Ronsi took it harder than anyone this year. She was being silly and playing at the bus stop, but as soon as Tori turned to head for the bus Isabelle's countenance changed and she started to cry (that is an unposed picture--that is Isabelle's sad face...pathetic, isn't it?). It is going to be a long day without Tori.

Poor Ronsi, what a sad face! But, by this time next year she should be heading off to school as well, so her sadness will be a thing of the past (instead, she will be very nervous).

You have THE cutest girls.... Tori looked too cool for school. Love the puffs in the hair....
Isabelle may be sad and pouty in this picture, but she is still cute as pie! I hope her day brightened as it went on.
