Today was our first day of school. I had to bribe Evan to pose for the photo. I love the tradition of the first day of school pic, standing by the front door . Memo is showing off his typical cute grin and Evan has a mischevious twinkle in his eye. Lily was really excited, she was just a bit weary after standing there waiting for me to capture and coax Evan back into the photo.
Here is a better capture of Lily, my sweet baby girl, on her first day of school, proud of her new back pack with water bottle and lunch box.
Class was only 45 minutes today, part of a graduated schedule plan to acclimate the kids. My kids didn't want to leave of course. They won't have any problem with the transition. I am really impressed with both their teacher Mrs. Nooshi and her assistant Mrs. Bonnie. Everyone raves about Mrs. Nooshi, her assistant is new so I had not heard anything but I thought she was adorable. They both instantly had a connection with the kids. I feel really good about this school and expect it to be a great year.
Grammy Clare was so nice to come down early today and help us get ready for school. Since the class day was so short Grammy and I took Holden along with all the kids and went to class, followed by a picnic on the school grounds and a special celebration trip to Yogurt Planet for yogurt of their choice and all the toppings they wanted.
