This week my babies started back to school. Every year Kevin and I say the same thing, "Remember Emily's first year of school when we took a picture of them together?" Then we laugh and laugh.
This is the picture we are referring to. It was taken in 2001 when we lived in Washington DC. As you can see, it's pretty easy to spot the child actually excited about going. =o)
And nothing has changed. Emily still gets excited about shopping for new clothes and supplies and meeting her new teachers. Jesse (middle) still sees school as a chore. (He's too much like I was)
To be fair, Kevvy (left) has made a transition over the past couple of years and thankfully looks forward to going and does well with switching teachers. I am so grateful for this because it hasn't always been the case. This gives me so much peace about our move to Illinois, I know he'll do fine.
Happy back to school!
