Yay!  She We did it!  🙂 The first week of school was a success!  Cate walked in on the first day like an old pro!  I had to grab her and ask for a hug good-bye.  No tears (for anyone), only excitement and smiles!

On the second day, sadly there was one little girl that cried.  Poor Anna just didn’t understand why it wasn’t her turn next.  🙁 When we dropped Cate off, she cried a bit, but a little shopping with Mama made it all better (doesn’t it always?!).  The sisters gave each other BIG hugs when we picked Cate up, I really think they missed each other!


While I was taking pictures, Cate said, “Mama, be sure to get one of my name on my backpack!”





At the big red doors about to go in to school.  This is about the time she started bouncing up and down, soooooo excited to get in to her room!


I think we may have started our own little first day of school tradition…doughnuts!


Anna likes this tradition too.


Cate wasn’t the only one going to school. I started back last week and so far, it’s been great! I have 2 classes this semester which makes for a long night, but it’s been good.  I owe a BIG thank you to Corey for making “daddy night” so fun for the girls and also to the Grandparent’s who have been helping out too.  The support is awesome, thank you.

Also, thank all you blog comment-ers.  I love ya and I love your comments.  Okay, I might be on the verge of rambling now, so with that, yay for us…we’ve survived the first week of school!  🙂
