First day of School 09'

Today was the first day back for the monkeys.
A day of mixed emotions, Jennifer was ecstatic to be returning to her friends, Jilly-Bean was apprehensive(as you can see in the above photo).
Standing in line my baby grabbed me for dear life and cried big crocodile tears. Keeping my composure I comforted her and sent her to the door, walking away trying to fight back tears. Talking to her teacher later in the day she told me that as soon as Jill went into the school the tears stopped and she was fine.
Jen on the other hand went to her line, didn't want Mom to kiss or hug her, not in front of her friends(yeesh Mom??)LOL.
The first day of school was fantastic, they came home so excited and they love their teacher, yes!!

So glad the girls love their teachers and how in the world did J&J get so grown-up? Love Jennifer's sassy little hairdo. Great picture too.
