First Days

Yesterday the girls had their first gymnastics class. It was so fun to watch them. Shelly cracked us up with her techniques on the trampoline and the balance beam. Oh, and she was constantly tucking in her panties into her leotard...quite attractive (see photos below). Lily looked confident and focused with her teacher Ms. Sydney. I am hopeful that each class will continue to be as much fun as the first.
Today was the first day of school. Lily woke up happy, had a great breakfast, and joyfully walked onto the bus. It was so nice to see such a smiley little girl head off to school for 4th grade. Once she arrived back home, she exclaimed that 4th grade is amazing!!! Can't ask for more than that!

Shelly's school does a staggered entry for Kindergarten. So, today she went to class for just 30 minutes. It was long enough to select a seat, pick her cubby, organize her supplies, color a picture, meet a new friend, and receive her homework. She was a bit shy, but was so happy about her new teacher and excited to return for a full day on Thursday.

Overall, it all surpassed my expectations. My worries and concerns are most often unfounded and my girls always seem to amaze me when they rise to the occasion and show off their terrific attitudes and sweet personalities. So proud of you both!!!
