My Babies are in 2nd Grade!!

Today was the twin's first day of school! We laid out their clothes last night, read our favorite back to school book called "The Kissing Hand", had prayers and blessings from dad, and a yummy breakfast this morning from mom. (The first day of the school year always starts on the right note...) It was a very exciting day! 
Please be forewarned, I was a camera-happy mom this morning! These are for Grandma and Grandpa!!
I am so proud of these two. They are smart and happy and kind and good-hearted. They are simply wonderful and I am so thankful I get to have them and help them grow.
loving the shy face--doesn't she look just like John? pursed lips and all!
my beautiful girl!
more shy, pursed lips!
my handsome boy!
We rode our bikes...

We stood in our class line...

We greeted friends...

We met our new teacher, Mrs. Barnhart...

And off they went...
I came back later for pick up and took more pictures!

Jake admiring Neve's glasses
My little book worm!
With our best buddies, the Callaways!...



Even Alex found some of his buddies (he has one more year of preschool)...
And Owen found the leaves... 



He was stomping and giggling, loving the crackling sound!
Lots of excitement today! Here's to a great new school year!

Alright you've inspired me. I guess I'll do a school post tonight. I was debating just going to bed. Brad is loving that I'm actually on his bedtime routine now:)

Grandma and Grandpa THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, Annie, for your great post and for the adorable pictures. Jake and Hannah, you look so grown up and gorgeous and stylish on your first day of school. Alex and Owen are so cute, as always, and so are the Callaways and the others. What a fabulous start to a wonderful new school year. We love you all so much!!! Mom and Dad

So cute. Morgan has the same dress Hannah's wearing. I love the Kissing Hand connection. It's such a sweet book.

Holy crap is right! We are old. Ben especially! That would be weird to see a childhood friend's kids looking that old. You guys have done such a good job raising those two superstars!
