School Days

The girls finally had their first day of school today! WooHoo! They were SO excited last night! We put them to bed at 8, and they were both still wide awake at midnight! I'm sure they will CRASH tonight!

Nanny and PawPaw came over early this morning to see Maggie off for her first day of Kindergarten. They did this with Lily, too. Such a sweet tradition!

Gotta love the first day of school outfits and poses! These girls know how to strike it! :)

Watch out, 2nd grade!!!!!

HEEELLLLOOOO, Kindergarten!!!!

And, they're off!!!

Daddy and his girls!

Maggie has the same Kinder teacher that Lily had. We LOVE Mrs. Samford! So, so blessed!!

She also has Lexie and Ellie in her class. They have been friends since they were born. Their mommas, even longer than that! :)

Lily has Mrs. Bruce! She came home today saying that she was, "AWESOME!" :) I love to hear that!

Can't believe that we have 2 in school now! It is definitely going to be an exciting, busy year! We prayed on the way to school this morning that this year would be tons of fun and that they would learn a lot! But, more importantly, that they would show God's love and let His light shine through them!

In the same way,
let your light shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven!
Matthew 5:16

We love you, girlie girls!
You're both gonna R-O-C-K this school year! :)

What a sweet post. So excited that our girls are together. Can't believe we have two second graders also. Time sure does fly. Seems like we were just dropping the older ones off in Gayle's class. It is going to be a great year for all of them!!

p.s. LOVE LILY'S FIRST DAY DRESS!!!

AHH I am loving it, what a sweet day...but seeing all these kids get older is so hard! (funny that I am not aging?) The girls look adorable! I love the gum balls! I love the first day outfits! I love seeing them with their teachers. I will be praying for your girls and that the light (IT ALREADY DOES EVERYDAY!) shine through them. LOVE LOVE LOVE ya'll!
