|Kindergarten, 2nd, and Envious Little Sister|
Today was the first day of school for Evelyn and Claire, the very, very first time Claire has ever been away from me for more than a few hours. It was incredibly bittersweet, as it should be, but the girls handled it like champs without a single hint of a tear as I dropped them off.
(Glad to know they aren't too dependent on me, I guess!)

It was a tiring day for me too (on top of being a bit emotionally drained, somehow the laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning all landed on the same day...), so instead of our usual homemade pizza and movie night, I cut up veggies and fruit, made our favorite cream cheese fruit dip and put out hummus with pita chips. Everyone was happy.
I'm amazed how quickly these little babies grow up into independent, intelligent, clever, beautiful people. Having great teachers is a huge blessing too--Evelyn assures me her teacher is incredibly funny, which is important to kids, and Claire's, I've seen stop naughty behavior with a snap, a stern look and a, "No, thank you." Gotta hand it to those wonderful teachers!
Happy First Day of School, Everyone (whenever it happens to be)!
