Our Little School Girls!

First day of school was great! They girls were so excited they ate really fast got dressed and wanted to run up the hill to go into school. This morning Auntie Tracy was here for emotional support, Toto (aka Victor) and Daddy came from work to walk up the hill with our official Kindergartners. While the girls were at school Magi played with all the toys she is usually not allowed to play with she never really missed her sisters but was happy to go pick them up. On the walk home they talked and talked and talked about their first day, about their new friends, snack time, story time, lunch, play... It was great. They were yawning at 5:30 and sleeping before 7pm, I say that is a good 1st day!

Before we left the house the girls asked me to draw a heart on their hand so they can have my heart at school with them... They saw it in a commercial and thought that is what you do.
I HEART five year olds!

Running up the hill.
The building in front of them is the school, we can see it from our house.


  1. Love love LOVE it! I adore the hearts too, I might steal that from you on Monday!
