First day of school!!!

Well, summer is officially over, and school has started!! The girls were so excited for today....they had a hard time falling asleep last night, and didn't even want to wear pj's to bed, because they wanted to get up and get dressed right away this morning! Didn't want to waste any time taking off pajamas! (so I let them) I woke up this morning with my alarm, and by that time they had already gotten dressed, eaten breakfast, and were making their sandwiches for lunch with frans! Here are a few pictures from this morning...
I can't believe we have a girl in 2nd grade already!!
Kierstyn our big 1st grader.... And they're off.... Kierstyn...standing in line waiting for the teachers....a little nervous!Lindsey was a little nervous too!
And miss Toni. bummed. out. Found out this morning that preschool doesn't start until like the 2nd week of september!! So we are going to go to Mcdonalds or something today since we were all excited for school!

hope everyone is enjoying their summer!! when do all you MN kids start school?

Cute pictures! It seems sad, we just got summer here and your girls are already back in school :)

Kuoppala's & in-laws said...

Yes, Toni does look bummed out! dk

Big girls!! Are you adjusting to the school routine by now? We start on the 18th and I'm not ready to be up at 5:30 a.m. to get kids off on the bus. Will take a bit before we're in that routine again.
Toni looks so bummed ... she'll be super thrilled when it finally starts!

I actually had toni pose for that picture...but it was fun taking it..she couldn't make a frown face without laughing! It was pretty funny:) She seems to be doing just fine staying home with alanys. they have been playing so good this week together! There is no routine yet tho, because i leave tomorrow to seattle, so this week has been crazy. (i am taking pics at Lisa simonson and adam Keski's wedding)
better get off the computer. How is Sarah doing? Maybe someone can update here. It's probably on bebo tho...i'm going there next!

Adorable pictures Jenny! I get so lonesome for all of you anytime I see pictures...

We haven't started school quite yet. John starts band lessons on Monday and Steven has WEB classes next week. (WEB is a group of kids who help the younger and new kids get adjusted to middle school.) We have two weeks of summer left before we will be forced into routines again. At the end of the summer, it is nice to anticipate routine; at the end of the school year, it is nice to anticipate the absence of routine. Glad we have both to make us appreciate the other.

Happy end of summer to all :)
