Well I was all set to take a plethora of pics that morning. I got the kids up early and made them look FABULOUS, of course. I left a good 15 minutes to just snap pics.
And then the bus showed up 20 MINUTES EARLY! So much for my picture time. Savannah burst into tears, thinking she was going to miss the bus on her first day of kindergarten. I assured her, she would make it.
So I have very few, very bad, pictures of the kids, but I'll post them nevertheless.
So the rundown is this: The kids started school a week ago. Savannah, is starting kindergarten (and she was still 4, sweet ;) She was soooo excited. Anything social is up her alley. She was convinced she would be the smartest, cutest, funnest person in the whole class (she isn't lacking self confidence, I assure you). Mason was actually excited about this year, which he usually isn't. He started 3rd grade. He met his teacher the day before and seemed to really like her (I'm sure she didnt know that since he barely made eye contact with her, let alone spoke to her- but that's just Mason). He was thrilled that the ONE person in his class he is friends with, just ended up sitting right next to him, since they were seated alphabetically. I'm sure this made it much easier for him since he is so shy and doesnt dare speak up and get to know new people. Savannah, on the other hand, didn't care who she sat by, she was sure they would be her new best friend and think she was as fabulous as she thinks she is ;)
So they both had a great time and both are really liking their teachers. Savannah thinks school is amazing and pops out of bed each morning with a smile on her face and ready to go! Mason's attitude this year has been so much better about school, and I can't help but wonder if it's partially due to the later start time. He is NOT a morning person.
Anyway, so that's it. Here are the terrible pictures I snapped as my poor children ran for the bus ;)
