Today was the first day of school, so I took the day off work to see them off. Layla is starting Kindergarten this year (how is that possible?!) and Blake is in 2nd grade (time flies!). She was very excited this whole weekend. Every day she was asking how many more days. I dont think Blake was quite as excited, lol.
Getting the backpack ready...
I decided to make that colorful Rainbow Cake that has been circling around other blogs. I thought it would be a little fun thing to do the last day before school started. It was a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed helping.
Just a cute shot of Morgie since I havent shared any in awhile. She is almost 6 months already! Again, where did the time go?!
Blake wanted me to get a shot of his, too. He said I never took a picture of them before, lol. He wanted Jordans, but ended up picking these instead. My wallet thanks him.
(I made those clippies using a scrap from the embroidery hoops!)
And we're off!
Have fun big girl!
She walked right in and didnt even wait for me. When I walked in she told me she didnt know where to sit. Then the teacher told her she could choose her seat. She picked out her seat & hung her backpack on the chair. The teacher told her to come get a name tag, so I told her goodbye & to have fun. She gave me a big smile & a wave, and I took that as my cue. So it's just me & Morgie until 2:30. It feels pretty strange not having Layla here!
Of course, I come home to find my cat EATING A SQUIRREL in the back yard. YUCK!! Lucky me, I got to bury it. Guess that explains why the squirrels havent destroyed our pecan tree yet.
Anyway, have a great day!
