First Day of School and Preschool... successfully completed!

Today was the first day of Grade One for my oldest, and the first day of Preschool for my middle son.  It was a very exciting and very exhausting day in this house... but everything went well, and the boys went to bed happy.  I guess we can't ask for much more than that.  :-)  Here's how our day went:

We started the day with a pancake breakfast

My First Grader holding a picture of himself on his first day last year

My Preschooler holding a picture of himself on the first day last year

Treats (Smarties) my First Grader brought for his new classmates

Ending the day with some bus cookie "lollipops" and milk

A good day, but a long day.  I miss summer already!  :-)
