First Day of Kindergarten

Our twin boys are in Kindergarten. . . . what a big step. I was not sad at all just really excited for them. I love school. . I always did and still do that is why I am a teacher. There is something so thrilling about the first day of school. You can just feel the excitement and anticipation in the air. After we got them all settled Lucia and I went to celebrate with a maple bar! I can't believe we made it to Kindergarten there were some toddler days when I thought we were not going to make it:) They had a great short morning it is just from 9:15 - 11:45 everyday. . . just enough time to get to Costco and go pick them up again. Here are some fun first day pictures. Keagan at his table ready to go!
Kinkade not at Keagan's table . . feeling a little hesitant but trying to be brave.

They told Grampy and Grammy when they came over last night to get the recap of their first day that they both met a best friend and then they said each other. These two truly love each other and are best friends.

Grampy, Grammy, and Lucia waving goodbye as we walked down the street. We left Lucia so I could totally focus on the boys.

Sad little sister that big brothers are off to school . . .

My two hansome boys.
We ALWAYS have to do a silly picture! It is just the way this family rolls.
Kinkade wanted to do an annoyed picture. I love rolling my eyes so I was game.
They are nuts!

Keagan and Kinkade we are so proud of you!

Wow - kindergarten, already?!!! I definitely relate to "those toddler days" when you feel like you aren't going to make it to that stage! ;) The boys look so dang handsome & grown up! And look at you, beautiful skinny mini Darc! :) Ahh, that Lucia has the most captivating, gorgeous eyes and expressions. Ok, we love your family!!! Congrats on the first day of school & we're thinking of your sweet family often... :)`
BTW: I still have that adoption-love poem to give you from my Mom - so sorry!!!

Exactly how I felt about my boys first day of Kindergarten. Your boys are just the cutest.

The first day of school pictures...oh how I miss the good old days! The boys are growing so fast and getting sooo handsome. Lucy's pic at the front door is priceless. You should send it to "Tiny Sprouts" to use. She's a little model! Miss you guys.

I can't believe they are off to Kindergarten already!! I love how their backpacks are practically as big as they are.

Congrats, Keagan and Kinkade... only 17 more years of school to go. :)

Stacy said...

I'm a teacher, too. Oh, how I love school- esp the first day!!!

I love your silly pics by the front door. My fav pic is of sad Lucy missing her big brothers. It reminds be of Bella missing her big brothers, too.

Glad you're back blogging- missed you!

What an exciting thing - the first day of kindergarten!! I love all the pictures. There is nothing better than the backpack pics:).

Yes, I did get a job!! 6th grade at Finch. My principal, Kim Harmon, says she knows you too (and off the record - wants you to come back and teach at Finch when/if you return):).

Hopefully we'll see you soon...

Big Boys this year going off to school! How cool is that, and also heart-breaking for momma? ha
Lucia is totally amazing. I am pretty sure it is not possible for her to get ANY cuter!
Looks like you guys are having a ball. That is what it is all about!

I can't believe they are in Kindergarten!!! So fun!

Out of the blue, Liv was asking what Keagan and Kinkade were doing yesterday. Then she asked what you were doing. It was pretty cute... I love how she loves the McMurray family! We miss you and hope to see you soon!
