4th and 5th Grade Begins

The first day of school. Kids were up really early, excited and nervous. It's the first year that they are going to separate schools. That was a pretty big deal for them. Hannah has always had big brother around to help her out or comfort her. She shed a tear or two, but quickly got over it when we reminded her she was the one of the big kids in the school now. James is at a school that is only 5th and 6th grade. He is super excited to have band this year! I will be super excited when he decides on an instrument so we can buy one while the pickings are good. He has a really long bus ride - and hour but is way ok with it because his best buddy rides with him. Man, these kids just keep growing don't they?
7:20 am was a bit cool this morning so his "awesome" Star Wars shirt had to be covered up with a sweatshirt.

Hannah picked her own outfit out at the store and has saved it just for today. She is crazy about it! I of course, think she is adorable. :)

It sure looks a little darker out when James left for school. How much earlier does he have to leave?

Ahh! I don't like the thought of kids at different schools, but obviously I'll be dealing with this in a couple years, too.
Her outfit is adorable.
Pam, Rachel LOVED the clothes. After school today she had tried on several things, but wore the swimsuit the rest of the evening. :)

Chris - James leaves the house at 7:30am. Yuck. Hannah doesn't have to leave until 8:35
Kara - so gald she liked the clothes. If she doesn't care for some of them, just pass them along or donate them :)
