Here is Kira and Nola's 'official' first day of first grade school picture. Last year they were in a half-day kindergarten program, so this is their first full day of school. And a day I have dreaded since the girls were born.
All at once all my children are gone - it is the only down-side to having twins.
From kindergarten to twelfth grade, Eric has a first day of school picture taken next to the same front door. How can we break with tradition? I love that Nola and Kira are holding hands - I didn't ask them to.
While we were in England, I bought each of the girls a school uniform dress that English school girls wear in the warmer months. Nola (on the right) wore hers to school today. I have such memories of wearing a little red checked dress and grey cardigan to school. And I must be the only person who sends their kid to school in a uniform when the school doesn't require one!
The girls came home saying they thought they would learn more and that their Spanish teacher doesn't know many English words. I think it is going to be a good year.
Have your kids started back at school yet? Do you have any back-to-school traditions? My mum used to bring us breakfast in bed the day before school started.
