First Day of School

They were a teensy bit excited this morning:
Bear had even programmed her phone alarm to go off with "Seventh Grade!" flashing on the screen. She is thrilled to no longer be at the bottom of the middle school totem pole and that this is the year that she will officially become a teenager. I haven't yet told her that I'm forbidding this whole turning 13 thing. I'm just not ready. A shot with Daddy, who drives them to school every morning on his way to work. Bug came over to me right after this shot to confess that she had "just a few butterflies in my tummy, even though I know exactly where my classroom is."
I have butterflies, too. I can't wait to hear about their new teachers and schedules!

Short post today, as I've just been informed by The Contractor that he needs to take out both Bug and Bear's bedroom windows today, and cut a doorway through Bug's wall. That translates to me needing to move Bug's bed and bedroom refuse into Bear's room. STAT.

We've had 13 in the house since April and there's only been one day (Monday, the first day of school), when I really felt it. Otherwise, he's been a peach.

Good luck to your girls. I love the outfits!

Let's just hope the excitment for the first day of school remains for every day of school.

How exciting :-) Wait, wait, the outfits worn were not featured in our voting segment! Goes to show you, we females wear what feels good at the moment. Anyway, they look awesome and happy. Sooo happy they love school. I know I did.

I was going to ask if you did a happy dance when the girls left for the day, but it appears you've been too busy to dance.

They look adorable.

First day jitters-we all get them.

I have no kids at home anymore, but I still love the first day of school. I get the grocery store all to myself! :)

Hope the girls had a good day.

P.S. I didn't see either outfit I voted for. :) I'm sure they felt as pretty as they looked.
