First day for my oldest 3!

Isn't she the sweetest? 
Camille wanted in everybody's picture

Sweet Sydnee 
Ava & her little buddy

Because she needed one by herself too!

They wanted to get inside- can you tell they are just humoring me here?

Our last school drop off.  Doesn't she look so big?

Hoping this year is as good for Sydnee as it was for Ava!

Handing over the cinnamon rolls, per tradition, to Mrs. Shae, Lucy's teacher.  Two of Lucy's friends are in her class- Violet & Lizzie.

Oh my sweet girl! This one makes me teary.  Sure love my little sunshine.

Daddy's turn- and a better view of Lucy's cute dress

Lucy's bestie, Lizzie Burns is in the same class.
Well this morning at 3:30 Lucy and Camille came and visited us. Insert yawn here. We asked them to go back to bed then when the alarm went off for Todd's normal time to get up- we slept on...then when I looked at the clock and realized it was much later than I thought, I spent the rest of the morning in a bit of a frenzy.  Luckily/blessedly- it all worked out! All the girls went to school with their previously picked out outfits and accessories, new shoes, backpacks, and hair done.  I curled Ava's hair with rollers, straightened Sydnee's with the Chi, and french braided Lucy's.  They all looked so pretty this morning. I am anxious for them to get home and tell me all about it! I have a special snack planned today too- peanut butter kiss cookies. Because last night was a little crazy we totally forgot to give our girls their books this year- and we were going to do it this morning, but it was too crazy! So we'll do that when they get home too.
I have set up a homework area for them again.  Last year we did this but then they just ended up using the diningroom table, which is fine too, but I'm hopeful this set up will work out.  We shall see! I want to make sure it is all ready today- I'll take a picture later. :)
Todd took the day off today so he could do drop-off and be here when they came home.  He's such a good Daddy. Because he is here I made him go grocery shopping with me! I could have gone alone, but Aldi is much more fun with help! So we did a lot of shopping and now are enjoying Camille "sleeping" and Cora cooing on the blanket.  We have a little lunch organization station going on in the fridge, snack baskets are full, homework area set up- so its off to a good start here.  It was a lot of work on my part to get all that set up, but I figure that if I don't start off organized, I won't last!
Here's to happy first days! I can't wait to see them in a few hours!
