Second Grade Eve

Kenna and Michal start second grade tomorrow. Second. Grade. How is that possible?

They had "Meet the Teacher" today and are absolutely elated that school starts tomorrow. We've bought -- and labeled -- a mountain of school supplies, a new backpack and a new lunch box. First day outfits have been picked out and I've filled out a small ream of forms times two. I still need to label their tennis shoes but can't find the sweaty-feet-proof Mabels Labels from last year. (One of the great joys of moving is not being able to find things you know you have.)

After I take the girls to school tomorrow, I'm baking chocolate cupcakes for our third annual Back-to-School Celebration dinner. Our good friends are joining us for the celebration, which will be really fun.

    Share pictures of the back to school celebration, please.

  4. Shelley,

    The bags are Trader Joe's reusable shopping bags. They were filled with all the required school supplies. Each neatly labeled with a sticker with their name on it.

    Going back to school is a lot of work.

    Congrats to your first grader!!

    Second grade -- unbelievable. I started reading your blog when the girls were just about 2. Unbelievable that they are in 2nd grade.

    I know what you mean about moving. We moved in Oct, and I still can't find some things. And, we finished unpacking months ago! Oh well...
