Today was the big day... first day of first grade for Liza and first day of Kindergarten for Jason. Oh man were they cute!
Last night while getting ready for bed Liza exclaimed "I'm so excited! I can't wait!! It's like there is a party in my BRAIN!"
And Jason... he just got dreamy eyes when we talked about Kindergarten because he was going to be in Miss Eshbaugh's class. Yeah... he's totally got a little crush on her. :)
I always ask the kids what they want for breakfast on their first day of school. I would make them anything... pancakes, waffles, whatever! I don't think they really know that though because we hardly ever have that stuff for breakfast. Last year Liza chose frosted mini wheats and the kids decided that that was what they wanted again this year. Easy enough for me!
We made sure to get ready quick so we would have enough time for photos before walking over to school. Liza and Jason were so excited about their new backpacks and shoes. It's the little things. :)
Waah!!! Seriously! Can someone make her stop growing up!!????
I love that Liza insisted on pigtails today. It keeps her looking a little younger... and super cute!
And then there is Jason. My little heart melter. He's already wanting to walk to school by himself. I told him NO... Mama needs that walk with her babies. They are not allowed to be big enough to walk to school by themselves yet! Says ME!
Ack... these pictures are killing me!
I really missed the kids today! I usually love having a bit of time to myself in a quiet house but all those times before I had the house to myself while the kids were out with Mike or grandparents or someone just having some fun. But to know that they are 100 yards away at the school... the quiet was too strange. I had to put on some music. It just didn't feel right and will take some time to get used to.
Jason only has half day kindergarten and I was so happy to have him back home for lunch but about halfway through the afternoon while we were sitting on the couch watching a movie he said "I miss Liza." I did too. It was just such a long time without her.
There will definitely be an adjustment period for all of us but we'll get there. :)
Liza and Jason both had a great first day of school and are looking forward to going back tomorrow!
