3:30 PM (Central time): The girls are back in school, and they are thrilled. I don't know who is happier about it--them or us! They had their first day yesterday, and we got up bright and early, took lots of pictures, and walked them to school. Although some kids in Sophie's class were a little uncertain (or even crying) about being left, Sophie did just fine. I think her time at Countryside really helped her transition to kindergarten. I can't believe Sophie is actually in school already!
This morning, the girls weren't nearly as excited about getting up. We wake them up at around 6:45, and I think they would prefer to sleep until about 9:00. It was raining this morning, so we drove to school. They have both been wanting to walk home (which we just haven't been sure about, even though it's between 2 and 3 blocks away). Randall went to pick them up this afternoon, and they convinced him to let them walk home together, so he drove on ahead of them. They were holding hands most of the way--what sweet girls!
