My girls head back to school two weeks from today. This week is the last week they’ll be around to really relax and enjoy their lazy summer days. Next week will be busy with school open houses and orientations and supply shopping. Plus we’ll force them to wake up early to prepare themselves for the early wake-ups the following week. So today, before the back to school grind really gets into full gear, seems like a perfect day to review pictures of my girls on the first day of school from years past. I did the same thing last year, but I think it’s fun to repeat every year with a new picture added.
2006: Jenny on her first day of school, heading to Kindergarten. (Wasn’t she so tiny??)
2008: Jenny heading to 2nd grade, Reagan looking sad that she’s not starting school yet.
(And yes, I know I skipped 2007. I swear she went to school that year, but I can’t find a first day of school picture.)
2009: 3rd grade for Jenny, and finally Kindergarten for little Reagan
2010: 4th grade for Jenny, 1st grade for Reagan
2011: 5th grade for Jenny (last year of elementary school!) and 2nd grade for Reagan
They’ve grown so much, haven’t they? We’ve already done our back to school clothes shopping for this year, but they haven’t quite decided which outfits they’ll wear the first day of school. But come back two weeks from today and you’ll see!
