This morning I slept through my alarm, showered late, and realized I forgot to have the girls decorate their school bags and collect three items to describe themselves during class. I couldn't find our little chalkboard, so I printed off a paper because I knew I definitely didn't want to skip out on their first day of school photo, even if it meant running a little behind! We slapped together their bags, grabbed random items and sort of stretched the similarities between each one and the girls, then rushed out the door to make it just in time.
It was so sweet watching them hesitantly walk in the preschool door, side by side. I'm so glad they will have each other during the year. Norah assured me she would help Lucy be kind, and that she would tell the other kids to be kind too. :)
I picked them up and loved how they ran toward me for hugs (barefoot, of course) as soon as I jumped out of the car. They told me all about how they had to sit on circle time, and how it was such a long wait for Norah, and how they ate goldfish and fruit loops for snack. They had already come home with a fun little rocket ship art project, and it made me really excited for the rest of the year and the fun activities they will do. We called Ryan to tell him all about their first day, then flopped into bed for a nice nap. :)
