The little babes had a short “Meet the Teacher” meeting today in their very own Kindergarten room with their very own Kindergarten teacher. Oh the excitement!!
Wela, Maggie, and JaJa all stopped by before the meeting to give back-to-school hugs:
And Ro and Ree picked out very special “Meet the Teacher” outfits today. As always, the various origins of the pieces cracks me up. Ro (on the left in the below pics)(oh wait, I don’t even need to say that anymore do I? sheesh) chose a polkadot pink and purple Boden top that was handed down from her friends H2 and S2, a hairbow that the granddaughter of my childhood neighbor made her (Hi Mrs J!), a skirt that she bought at Target this summer, last-year’s Valentine’s Day leggings from Target, Hello Kitty socks, and her new silver sparkly school shoes that she picked out herself at Nordstrom a few days ago. Ree went back and forth this morn, then settled on a bright striped Hanna Andersson dress that we found at Costco (did you know they have some Hanna Andersson stuff at Costco now?!), some stripey Carters kneesocks that Wela bought her, a star headband that our foreign exchange student from the 70s gave her at Christmas, and her new patent leather school shoes that she picked out at Nordstrom. Their outfits just made me grin!
They are so proud of their new school shoes it’s adorable. And the huge difference in styles is SO them:
Adorable little honeys. Your daddy and I are so proud of you and SO excited for your Kindergarten year. You two are going to have the BEST year:
The end. Well actually it’s just the beginning, seeing as how tomorrow is the FIRST DAY of Kindergarten (squeal!), but this picture just screams “the end” doesn’t it?:
PS: We chose to put the girls in the same room for Kindergarten, which is especially good now that Ro is Ree’s bathroom buddy for as long as she has a cast. :-)
