Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

School Daze Begins

The good news is we made it through the day and everyone enjoyed their new classes, but our day wasn't without its drama.  First, no one mentioned the first day of school traffic jam and ensuing parking nightmare around every school in town.  I missed it last year because La Nina was an afternoon kindergartner.  So, despite leaving early, we barely got La Nina to school on time.  

Then, it was not easy for the Magster to leave school knowing she was starting that very same afternoon.  She had another rough morning, but once we pulled up to school to drop her off, she primly told me it would be very rude for the Dad and I to stay on her first day of school.  I assured her we'd only stay as long as the other parents, and she seemed consoled.  

Both girls emerged from their classes with big smiles on their faces and tales of new friends, new learnings and even a real live skeleton.  Neither was overly tired and both were wishing for homework.  That will come soon enough.  Tomorrow is another day and hopefully the morning drop of goes a lot smoother.

    The picture is precious. I love it. And it says so much about them growing up (and becoming independent too fast!)

    I have a pic of Sammie on her first day of preschool walking away from us, her in pigtails and a backpack slung on her back that's almost as long as she is.
