Well kids, today marks another milestone in our family. I am sending your sister, Autumn, with you to school to spend her days learning how to read, write and snicker at boys. The house is going to be unusually quiet. In fact, I'll need to keep an eye on April. No telling what she'll be able to get into now.
You did so good this morning getting ready on time and looking cute with your smiles and sleepy eyes.
Your littlest sister thinks she's getting in the van with you. She's been demanding that someone give her her shoes so she can go to school!
John, can you not stop for one second so I can take a picture of you walking in to your first day in the 4th grade or are you too cool for that?
Hey girls! Wait up! I'm supposed to be walking you into class. Not the other way around.
Welcome to Pre-k, Autumn. I hope you don't bite your teacher's head off when she tries to wake you up from a nap like you do me. Oh, and stay away from the boys. They're trouble.
Have fun in First grade, Anna. This is the real thing now, no naps for you. And be good because this is going on your permanent record! And all that stuff about boys applies to you, too.
I'll be here at the house if you need me, eating bon bons and watching The Bold and the Beautiful. Just kidding! [About the soap opera, of course!]
