3 Days and Counting

Yesterday was a good school prep day. Both girls had their open houses, Vienne in the morning and Natalya in the evening. Vienne loved her new school. The teachers were warm and welcoming. And how could you hate a classroom that was FULL of toys? I think she's gonna like it there.
Natalya was in aw the whole time we were at her school. It seems so big to me since her kindergarten was in a small private school (they brought the lunch to their classrooms and there were only 7 students.) I was a little in aw too. It brought back some memories walking into the library and the cafeteria. Natalya sat in her desk and to her it was the just as fun as opening Christmas presents. As we were leaving she said, "I wish I had homework to do tonight." I love her.

Vienne pretending to be Handy Manny.

THE desk, with a cubby. Sweet.

And Me at the end of the day.

i wish i had homework to do...i love her. She is SO CUTE. I just went to open house last night too. I get so excited for them. I love the new pens and paper and the writing names on everything. It totally takes me back to when i was little...the excitement of newness. And the tiny desks with cubbies inside...that got me too. Precious kiddos.

So cute!

It makes me want to go get a fresh notebook and new pens.
Oh, and maybe a TRapper Keeper, remember those!?

I took my middle daughter to school for the first time this week! I can so relate.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope you enter the carnival. You have some great writing!

I'm catching up with my blog reading as I have been frantically busy lately and it seems so much is happening in the Hipmomma's world!

Glad the Orientation days went well. They do lessen the anxiety on day 1. The pictures give a great flavour of the day. Wish I'd taken some on Baby Angel's visit all those years ago.

The funniest memory I have is of her new Reception teacher who was a VERY good looking young (well not SO young) man. My friend said she could feel the gale from my eyelashes batting from across the room!!!!! Well, REALLY!

Didn't think to shoot the day though......thanks for sharing.
