The kids started school yesterday. Nicholas started fifth grade and Rebecca started pre-school. I can't believe the summer is over. School started so early this year.
Mom and Dad were visiting for a long weekend, so they were able to see Nick and Becca off on their first day. Mom even went with us to drop Becca off at pre-school.
Here are the kids before heading out to the bus stop. Rebecca was determined to get dressed and walk to the bus stop with Nicholas.
And here they are waiting for the bus to arrive.
They both had good first days.
When we dropped off Rebecca, I got a little teary eyed, but managed to leave the school classroom without breaking down. She was fine when we left her for those three hours, but excited to see us when we picked her up when school ended.
She said she had made friends and was very excited to go back (thank goodness).
Nicholas was excited to see his friends and start a new year. Since he is in the fifth grade, his class has the oldest kids in the school ... the big boy on campus.
Let's hope that this is an exciting year for both of them.
