Off They Go!

It's officially the first day of school!

Dylan and Lexie woke up so excited about their first day!  After our traditional Back To School doughnut breakfast, they put on their brand new Back To School outfits, and we snapped a few obligatory first day pictures!

Dylan is going into 5th grade, which means he's moving into a new building.  It's a much bigger school and actually looks very much like a high school.  He was a bit intimidated when we toured it, but he's looking forward to seeing his friends and having a locker for the first time! His three teachers are very nice and he found out there's another skateboarder in his class, so he can't wait to meet him. Dylan's a great kid and I know he's going to have a great year!

Lexie is starting 3rd grade! She's still in the same school, but is moving up to the top floor this year.  She has a male teacher for the second time in her short school career.  There are only a handful of male teachers in K-6, and I went to school with both of the male teachers Lexie was assigned!  I graduated with Lexie's kindergarten teacher and Lexie's new teacher was a year ahead of me in high school. Lexie can't wait to tell him that she saw his high school yearbook pictures! Lexie is going to have a great year, too!

Dylan and Lexie are a bit bummed that they won't be in the same school anymore (they won't be in the same school again until Lexie starts 9th grade!), but they still ride the bus together!

Lily doesn't start school until next week, so she was feeling a bit left out this morning! She watched sadly as Dylan and Lexie climbed on the bus and held onto my leg as the bus pulled away.  I think she's going to miss them!

Here's to a great 2015-2016 school year!  My "babies" are growing up way too quickly!!!
