First Day of School 2009-2010

Today was the first day of school for Maddie and Emma. They both could not wait for this day to get here, but I'm pretty sure that Emma has no idea what she is getting herself into. Lilly spent the night at grandma and grandpa J's since I was the helper in 3K. Without Lilly here, the morning went pretty smooth, now we will see how it goes tomorrow. We were off and there were no tears and it seemed like we could get there fast enough.

Both girls seemed to have a great day. I am hoping that Emma does okay on Wednesday when I don't stay as her helper. She seemed to not really be clingy, but you never know how it will go. Emma was so excited to tell everyone what she did today and to show everyone the craft she made. We went to McDonald's celebrate the first day of school. We went to go pick up Lilly and boy were the girls happy to see her. I think deep down Lilly missed them too. The girls were so excited that naps didn't happen, but on the way home from Germantown Maddie just couldn't keep her eyes open any more.

Not only was it the first day of school, but it was also grandma Heff's birthday. We celebrated with cupcakes after dinner that the girls picked out at Wal-Mart. I think they were enjoyed by all. Maddie is back to school tomorrow since she is going 5 days a week. That is going to be an adjustment for us also having to go to OR everyday. So we will see how the rest of the week goes. We are off to Michigan on Thursday for a wedding. The girls and Chad have off on Friday, so it will be nice to get an extra day in Michigan.
