1st day of school!

Today is the first day of school for Gracie (4th grade) & Katie (Kindergarten). Katie was literally bouncing as she woke up this morning, she was so excited! Gracie wasn't quite as excited, and actually seemed a tad nervous, but I know she'll get back into the groove and do great!

Katie walked in with no hesitation as I struggled to hold back tears, but I reined it in pretty well.

After the kids were off to school, we had a 'Back to School Mom's Breakfast" which I really enjoyed! It was fun and helped take my mind off the fact that the house was a bit emptier.

The pictures are precious! I am sure they will both have a great year. Also I wish I lived closer so I could have enjoyed the nice spread of food you laid out for your friends.

First of all, your girls are absolutely precious. I love the way you always dress them so cute and age-appropriately, and stylishly. Secondly, your backdrop is precious. I LOVE damask :) Thirdly, Katie will do wonderfully in Kindergarten. I have no doubt. Bless you, Jacinda as you send out your girls to be salt and light!

The girls look so cute in their first-day outfits, and I love the pic with the two of them hand-in-hand. Breakfast was great! Thanks for hosting!
