First Day of School!!

So this is only 5 weeks late, and I realize that there is a gaping hole between June and September but we've all got to start somewhere, and the first day of school seemed l is soike a good place. Emily started kindergarten this year and Lauren started pre-school. Both girls got to have a little celebration the night before their school started they chose the menu and got balloons. Emily chose spaghetti with meatballs (specifically homemade meatballs), corn on the cob, bread and fruit with chocolate cupcakes for dessert. Lauren was a bit easier with pizza and root beer floats. I think it's so funny because their choices represent their personalities in so many ways!!!! Both girls thoroughly enjoyed their individual celebrations, looks like a fun tradition.
Emily is is a kindergarten/1st grade combo class and is loving every minute of it. She just thinks she so big and cool!!! She is especially excited about homework (you know, the very advanced kind the do in kindergarten!

Emily's special dinner night!
