September was a very bittersweet, albeit mostly sweet, month. The twins started school (Kindergarten). Caroline started 2nd grade. I started school (5th grade).
School started on a Wednesday and Caroline has PE on Wednesdays, so her dress uniform got a day off. Emma Kate and Sam had staggered entry and a shorter day.
Nervous? Excited? Ready?
Without a doubt.
Water spots from cleaning up rogue toothpaste? Shirt untucked? Collar uneven?
Yes. You may have heard of these.
They're called "boys".
New grade. New teeth.
She is ready!
I love the progression of these next shots. I am sure at the time I was probably frustrated as I just wanted to get the picture of three perfectly standing, smiling angels. Editing and uploading several months later and I realize that these are much better than what I thought I wanted.
Isn't that always the way?
Wait, don't mess up his collar!
You can tell Sam doesn't like Caroline at all...yeah, right!
Did you know she hung the moon just for him?
School has been wonderful. The kids love their teachers (so do I) and have learned SO much.
