Back to school!!!!

Wahoo!!!! It is that time of the year.

The girls are completely thrilled that they are back in school. It has been quite a summer and school is just what they needed. They really missed the heck out of their friends.

Katie is very happy that she is actually switching classes this year. You know, one room for math, another for English...etc. It is the Big Time.... :)

Emily is so happy to see her buddies. She is a social kind of girl. I keep reminding her that her teacher is a bit different from her Kindergarten teacher. Her 1st gr teacher is a bit more strict. Katie had her for first grade. So...we know....

Her are a few pics from the first day - it was free dress. Most half days are.
Emily and her best-bud Sophia.

Emily at her desk. Front row. 1st grade!!!!

I hope that every day ends this way!!!!

The sisters. Kate had a great day. That back pack of hers weighed more than Allison. Can you see Allison trying to make a break for it???

The 2nd day (and just about every day after that) is uniforms. Don't they look adorable?

Our tween-ager. 10yrs old. 5th grade. Unbelievable.
I think that the girls look so sweet.

Our school girls......
Here's to a great year!!!

An update post....

Emily completed her first season in softball. Her team had a get together at Alfonzo's. There, the awards were handed out. You may not recognize this reference, but Em won the "Charlie Hustle" award for her team. Her coach said that she was the only team member who could cover center field and 3rd base. And she did!!! When I told Eric about the award (a reference to the GOOD old days of Pete Rose) he laughed, because he knew it was SO true.
Emily is very proud of her very first trophy!

We celebrated the good old fashioned way. Family and cake. It was a good time.

We got the girls' bunk beds up. They are loving it. Thanks to Uncle Matt and Ashtin for the hand-me-down.

You can guess that Emily uses the top bunk like a stage. It is perfect for her. She looks so little when she sleeps in it.

Katie loves the privacy of her little "cave". She is at the age where privacy is prime. But she will lay on the top bunk when she talks on the phone. Unfortunately, Allison also loves Katie's cave-bed and we find her there often.
