Richie and Sophia started school a little over a month ago. Sophia was so excited to be starting kindergarten and Richie was just glad to be going back to school so he wasn't bored all day long. Sophia usually sleeps-in but she was the first one up that morning and she came out of her room already dressed. Richie was up soon after her and they both had some breakfast and were ready to go.
Sophia thought making some bunny ears would be pretty funny, but I didn't realize that was what she was doing so I didn't actually get the bunny ears in the picture.
I think Richie felt kind of cool because he is a third grader and Sophia is in kindergarten and he already knows how everything works. Look how confident he looks walking up to the school with his sister.
But, do you see how his back pack is missing? I didn't even notice that while I was taking the pictures.
It's hard to believe that this little girl is finally in elementary school. She has been looking forward to this day ever since we dropped Richie off at his first day of kindergarten three years ago.
You may remember how broken-hearted Sophia was when we left Richie at school for the first time and she didn't get to go, too. Look how little she was!
Well, Grace felt just as bad. We had been talking about school starting for a while, and she knew she was starting pre school this year, so she didn't understand why she wasn't going to school, too. She would have to wait another three weeks for her school to start and she was not happy.
When I picked up Sophia I asked her how her first day was and she said, "Not so good." I don't think it was as much fun as she was expecting it to be. Last week she said to me, "When I was in pweschool, I thought kindagahden was going to be gahdening, you know, because it's called kinduh GAHDEN." That explains why she wasn't so happy about her first day. She is getting into the swing of things now and making friends and learning a lot, so I think she is okay with the fact that she isn't doing any gardening.
