Back to School

I had to do it. I had to do a back to school post. Despite the fact that every other mom blogger in the universe has already done one. After all, this is a mommy blog and I have to document milestones, right? Right?

I’m pretty sure my girls were the last kids in the world to finally go back to school.

But go back they did and they were SO excited. I am so thankful that both of my girls have a great love of school and head out the door everyday ready for a full day of fun and learning.

So, adieu my sweet girls. I’ll miss you. Remember I love you, and know that this time away from each other is good for all of us (said with a smile). Work your little fannies rear ends off and take the year by storm. I know you will!

The winner of the Twisted Silver Giveaway will be posted tomorrow morning. Thanks for your patience.

    Why, they appear to LOVE one another!
    It’s so nice that they like school and like to learn; it makes it easier and it makes it fun, doesn’t it?

    They are so cute and they’ve both been graced with your lovely locks!

    they are SO beautiful! i always loved the first day of school. my mom took a picture every year, and my sisters and i love looking back at them now! we always had our “first day of school” outfit and backpack. when we were younger, we always took some flowers to our teacher from our garden. luckily, our mom didn’t make us do that in high school 🙂

    I know I tell you this all the time, but your girls are beautiful! My sister and I were both excited to go back to school every year too. I’m sure that makes it a little easier on mom. I hope they both have a great year.

    Your girls are ADORABLE!

    I have no idea how you blog with 5 kids, but then again, some people ask me how I do it with 3. It’s all about SCHOOL! :0)

    Thanks for the visit to my blog!

    They’re adorable! I must say that this is quite late to start school for the year. I’ll bet they were eager to get it going.

    Your girls are so gorgeous Angie. Your boys are gonna have their work cut out for them when they get older 🙂 It is so wonderful that they love school. I always loved going to school too.

    And…The singing video was at our fair. It was really cool. They had an entire section for little kids that was free. Petting zoos, farm adventures, pig races, etc. They had a stage set up for little kids to go up & sing. The girls hammed it up. They was a huge crowd by the time they got off stage. They each sang away. The video is of Charlotte but we have a similar Addee video. They bowed at the end when everyone clapped 🙂

    I think that Anson does too, but he just doesn’t want me to think he does…I don’t know.

    You’re right. You HAD to do a back to school post. Just look at those pretty girls!! How could you NOT post their first day of school glow?

    My excuse for being late on the back to school thing but still doing one (at least I plan to) moving of course with exactly 4 days before school started! I found a good idea for how to do it though, and it’s for the kids right? THAT’s why we blog right?

    Taya says

    Wow! Your school does start late! It’s nice to see a mommy blogger that had kiddos older that 3 or 4 years old. Sometimes I feel like the old woman on the block! 🙂 Maybe we can swap tween stories sometime!
