First Day of School

So here in TN, they do this whole thing sort of wierd. Everyone starts school on the same day, minus the kindergartners. They only go ONE day this week. They either go Tues., WEd., or Thurs., depending on their last name. I guess the idea is to have them get in small groups to get to know their teacher and know their way around the school and room and such. I guess that's good and all, but hello! School starts today and I want my son in school! hahaha.
Actually, it was a mess this morning trying to explain to him why Hailey got to go to school and he didn't. Oh well. Hulk backpack and Spongebob lunchpail will have to wait for another day.

So here are Hailey's first day pics. I"m actually VERY happy the my house is brick... makes for a nice background for pics! Isn't she adorable? I'm taking full advantage that my kids don't have uniforms.... cause in 2 years, they will. ugh.


And.... just to throw this out there for laughs- I had to take all 4 kids in to her school with me this morning. Took her to her class, then had to turn in some paperwork. I had all 4 of them trailing after me in a SWARM of kids and parents. I had to laugh. And honestly... i've never seen so many freaking parents taking their kids to school on the first day. It was a nightmare. guess everyone around here either feels the need to drop their kid off the first day, or the bus system is horrible. I'm opting for the first one. lol

She looks adorable! I love her hair cut like that. And I'm looking forward to Kayleb's first day of school pictures. It must be such a relief not to be in the Savannah school district any more. BTW - I found out what I'm having! But you just might have to visit my blog to find out yourself ;) Have fun in Tennessee!

I was in that very same position last year. Bunch of kids, baby in the carrier fighting to find my kids classrooms. Problem with the first day of school is that you have to help them find out where their rooms are. Teachers always move grades or rooms. It's a mess! Weird about kindergarten though. Hailey is adorable in any situation! I'm sure Kayleb will be very proud sporting all of his school gear in a day or two!

Oh, I am so stinkin' jealous that she doesn't have to wear a uniform. I am so sad I can't dress Lily up all fun for school. Hailey looks gorgeous though. How fun!
