First Day of School 2010

Today was the big day...the first day of school! Ella is no longer at the bottom of the food chain and gets to be a big first grader. And Aubrey is just too grown up and starting third grade(What? How did that happen?!) This year Aubrey has Mrs. Dickson, who I've heard wonderful things about. This was the teacher she was hoping for (phew!). And Ella has Mrs. Gahan, who was Aubrey's first grade teacher-an amazing lady! Ella already feels like she knows her so that is nice. I seriously prayed she would get her because we loved her so much:) I am so happy they both will have such wonderful teachers this year, what a blessing! They were both soo excited for their first day, mostly because they got to wear their new clothes/shoes/accessories :) Totally girls! Here they are right before we left this morning. . .

Cali of course had to get in a shot with her big sisters. Cali handled this morning just fine. No sadness or tears. I think the fact that the cafeteria served donuts for the parents & sibs for the boohoo/yahoo breakfast helped. She was perfectly content munching on a chocolate donut right after we took the older girls to their class. My kind of girl-chocolate makes everything alright:) Plus, she seems like she totally remembers the girls being at school last year and it doesn't seem to be a big deal to her to be alone. She has mommy all to herself now:) Well, for a little while...

Each of the school girls struck a pose for me :)

Lookin good!
I can't wait to hear about their first day. I hope it went great!! Cali and I spent some "special" her and I time this morning and even had a fun play date with a friend at Chuck E Cheese. This is my last week with just her and I at home and I want to squeeze in as much one on one time as possible before the lil boy comes. 9 days or less...

They look so stylin! Your girls are getting so big I wish we lived closer so we could visit more often. Glad to hear they got the teachers they wanted - a good teacher makes school a much more pleasant experience.
