And they’re off!

Our big third-graders, ready to meet their teachers and see all of their friends from last year:

Happy first day of school, girls! Can’t wait to hear all about it tonight.

  1. They look gorgeous but 3rd grade already? Sheesh.

    I miss those little hedgehog haired toddlers.

    Hope it was a stellar day.

    They have such beautiful hair. How do they keep their hair in tip top condition.

    1. You're sweet, thank you! Ro and Ree have really thin hair (complete opposite of me), so they use a volume shampoo and conditioner (by Dove) and also a leave-in spray conditioner as needed.

  5. Are you sure they're going to school? It looks like they should be headed to their executive offices, wheelie bags and all! I hope it was a great day.

    Hi M3,
    The girls are darling as usual. Quick question for you, my girlie girls would like to wear flats to school this year too. I am wondering if your girls wear them right next to their feet, or if they have a little sock on.
    Thanks so much for your answer!

    1. Hi Jen, they have these little peds that they wear -- sort of foot-shaped nylons in various colors (pink, white, black, nude). We get them at Payless Shoe Source.

  13. Adorable! Are Ro and Ree in the same class or separate classes? My twins (china born) are in fourth grade this year and are in the same class. Works for us, but I know it doesn't work for everyone. Hope your girls have a great year!

    1. Hi Susan, they're in separate classes this year again. They were together for kindergarten (which was perfect for the intro to school) and together for first grade (by the end of the year we wished we had split them), and separate for 2nd grade (which worked out really well).

  14. Third grade already! Wow!! They're so grown up and such beautiful girlies.
