First Days of School!

Good Morning Sleeping Beauties - it's time to go to SCHOOL!!!!!!!
Here's a picture of Josey giving her teacher, Ms. Holly, a present for her first day!

Well, it's official...I have two kids in school - yikes! That doesn't make me old, it does, however, make me tired! The reason I don't have pictures of the girls in their "specially picked out dresses" is because I can't figure out how to rotate their pictures from the long way to fit onto the blog - I welcome any help! Anyway, Ryleigh had a great first day with a wonderful teacher named Mrs. Woeste (pronounced Wasty). I asked her what her favorite thing about her was and Ryleigh smiled and said, "I like her face". She's pretty and apparently that speaks to Ryleigh. Josey's first day was great too! She got in the car after her day and I asked her if she had fun and replied, "yeah...I learnded a lot!" We have a little to work on...Now, for the picture of Garrison. We had just dropped JoJo off at school for the first day and I asked Garrison what he thought about having mommy all to himself. Yes, that is the response of a mama's boy!!

Happy First Day

Welcome to our "Happy First Day" party. You have to sing it to the tune of "happy birthday" - like this: Happy first day to you, Happy first day to you, happy first day, Ryleigh, Kyle and Josey, Happy first day to you -cha,cha,cha!" Fun huh! We celebrate the first day of school with our best friends The Jones. Kyle is going into the first grade at Kennedy, Ryleigh at Holsenbeck, and our newest member of the cool school group is JoJo. She is going to pre-K three days a week at Union Baptist, which is our church. We had dinner together, ice cream cake and of course, a fun run thru the banner. Our hope is to get the kids excited about school - it seems to work...for now. Wait until their a senior in high school and have to run thru a banner - I can see their eyes roll now! I'll just smile and sing, "Happy First Day to you"!!
