ANYWAY, here's one, giant post about how ALL OF MY KIDS ARE GROWING WAY TOO FAST! Get ready for the onslaught of pictures. It just can't be helped.

|The boy would not let go of this truck. Not even for cake.|
|His best Grandpa impression!|
Fast forward to last week when This One jumped feet first into the shark tank of public education:
Anyway, how cute is this sweet little ninja's new back-to-school haircut?! I could go on and on, but let's just say her coif finally matches her personality. Sassy and sweet. Smart and driven. Downright adorable, am I right?
Which brings me to the very small portion of my day in which I was at a loss for words. At 8:25, kids are allowed into the classrooms. The first student of mine to arrive was Miss Olivia. Her mama is also a teacher and Sylvia played with her many times over the summer. I asked Olivia to walk Sylvia downstairs to her classroom and she was happy to do it. I gave her a hug, a GIANT kiss, and watched her walk out the door and down the hall.
Margot has her first preschool "play date" tomorrow, so stay tuned for updates. I feel like we're sending her to her home away from home since she already knows most of the teachers and a couple of the kids. She asks me every day if her teachers are ready for her yet and when I tell her "not yet!" she whines, "But it's TAKING TOO LOOOONG!" The girl is dying to get out of this house and into a school. I can't wait for her to have some time away from all of us. She is itching for the chance to be herself and be around other people! Independent Margot Louise is as ready for the big, wide world as her big sister and it's going to be a great school year!
