Today was Amelia's first (ever!) day of school! Since the end of July, she has been asking almost daily if it was time to go to school. Needless to say, our little four year old was more than ready.
I woke up late (gasp!) because I was up two hours before my alarm from excitement but then dozed back to sleep. Thankfully, Daddy was off so he was able to help me get the two (three if you count Ellie as well) kids ready.
Nathaniel usually rides his bike to school. But since it was his sissy's first day, he wanted to be there with us, too.
I was nervous about the drop off but Amelia was a big girl. She didn't even look back to say or wave goodbye!
Well according to Amelia, it was a great first day! She loved playing with play dough, going to the different stations/group and making new friends. My picky eater even ate lunch! And she said her teacher told her she was a great listener. :)
Today was Nathaniel's first day of third grade. We didn't think we would be back to McNair for his third grade but alas, here we are! Since Hubs graduated this past July, we thought we would have PCSed to a new duty station shortly after.
Unlike most kids who started school with a fresh cut, Nathaniel still insists on growing his hair out.
These photos were taken back in January; hence the Christmas decorations everywhere. It is almost a treat to have this perfect lightning in winter and I'm absolutely loving it. I love the vibrancy of the colors and of course my two precious girls!
We took a break from house hunting last year and watched the July 4th festivities in DC. All the offices were closed for the holidays anyway. And we were in Washington, DC during 4th of July! (When in Rome, er, DC!) Unfortunately, I am just now getting around to posting these because life happens.
