Today was the first day of school. Fourth grade and second grade, how on Earth did that happen? As I wrote on Facebook today, along with another smiling picture of these two, "the days are long but the years are short." I think that sentiment originally applied to babyhood but I'm finding it so appropriate lately. The summer raced by and I can't believe that school is back in session. I haven't even written down all of our summer adventures. But on the flip side, the 'witching hour' post-dinner of getting everyone cleaned up, books read to, bathed, tucked in four different times, where's the cat, what about that one really important toy and what happens when there's a man on first and the pitcher blah blah blah. That hour or two sometimes feels like the longest part of my day.
But here we are. Fourth grade and second grade and firmly entrenched in big kid land. Much thought was put into these two outfits. Reina had her's planned for a while, down to the socks with foxes on them and a special necklace to borrow from me. Will waffled between a sports shirt (naturally) or a tshirt printed to look like a tuxedo. He ultimately chose the sports ensemble and is apparently saving the tuxedo shirt for a fancy occasion.

So on to day 2 and a new school year. I can't wait to see what this one brings but I wouldn't mind if it slowed down just a little bit.
