First Day of Kindergarten

It's finally here.  We found out yesterday afternoon that there would be no strike and school was ON.  We finalized their outfit choices, filled out a little questionnaire I found on Pinterest, I packed their lunches and they were in bed by 8:30.  I set their alarm for 7:00, and mine for 6:30 so I could be all ready before they got up (I showered last night), but they came into my room around 6:40, all excited.

I walked them to the bus stop, then I had to jump in my car and race to the school to try and be there when they got off the bus but I didn't quite make it.  Some of their friends' moms were there in time though (they got an earlier start because the girls have one of the last stops) and got some pictures.  I walked them to their classroom (actually, they mostly walked with their friends and I walked behind--they barely knew I was even there), took a few more pictures, and I was out of there.  Then I went to Trader Joe's.  By myself.  On a weekday morning.

The pictures are all in reverse chronological order.

Olivia at their table

At their table (they got to choose where to sit and I was filling out paperwork at the time or I would have suggested different tables-oops)

Walking to the playground with their friends after putting their stuff away.  The bell rang before they got there and they had to turn right around and come back.

Next to each other at the same table and also with one of their friends next to Kayley-that might not last long...

Just got off the bus

Getting on the bus - that's Olivia at the top of the stairs w/the purple backpack and her hand on the rail.  Kayley is right behind her.
