The girls had a great first week of school. Tori loves her teacher and is super excited that her recess overlaps Abegail's for about 15 minutes, so they have plenty of time to jump rope. Isabelle likes school, too. We did have a little trouble getting Ronsi out of bed this morning, but I don't really see that as an indicator of her excitement about school, it is more an indicator of her love of sleep and her love for being lazy.
Macie has had to make her own adjustments with the girls being gone, and she has gone through many emotions as she has dealt with their absence...the last picture really says it best. ;)

SHOCK/ DISBELIEF:

ANGER/ FRUSTRATION:

ACCEPTANCE/ CELEBRATION:



(Actually, she does ask for them throughout the day and she is really excited to watch for their buses. Macie is all about buses and airplanes currently)

Oh my gosh! She is so cute! I can't stand it. I want one just like her. I just called Gary down here to look at her picture. He told me to tell you that there is no way ours will be just like her...as if you couldn't figure that out : ). I am glad everyone is doing good. I love that she likes to sleep. You aren't like that, are you? Where did she get that from?
