The "Whoa's" of the First Day

So today was the first day of school for everyone...including ME! It was interesting to say the least.  The kids did a great job, especially since it was a new school yet again for all four of them:)  I am glad they got to meet their teacher's yesterday and see what school looked like, etc.  I took Hailey, her friends Jessica and Matt to the Junior High yesterday to meet their teachers, get their schedule, etc.  As I was dropping them off, I asked if they wanted me to walk them in, and you can imagine my surprise when they ALL shook their heads in unison with a "NO!"  Hailey then proceeded to grab my wrist and said "Please don't embarrass me Mom."  Ughhh!  It is already starting!  Here are pictures of the first day, plus what their school looks like:)  The first four are where the three younger ones go, and where I work.  Happy first day of school everyone:)

Avery & Audrey turn 5

Today is Avery and Audrey's 5th Birthday. In some cases, it seems like it took forever to get here, and in other cases it came soooo fast! They are as opposite as they could be, showing interests in different things, and being as independent as ever:) We started the day off with breakfast and gifts from the family in the morning; and then a trip to the park with great friends and cupcakes! Then off to lunch at McDonald's. They were spoiled royally from head to toe (literally) with headbands, nail polish, rings, dresses, shoes and toys.  See if you can tell by the pictures who loved what the most:) They are actually playing by themselves with their OWN toys.  (we shall see how long that lasts). Here is just a sampling of all the excitement I captured on film:)

Thank you everyone for making the girls' birthday extra special:)
