Happy to see the wonderful people my children are becoming...but a bit sad they are off to school again and won't get to hang out with me during the day.
Today was the first day of school. A Friday. A half day. Don't even get me started on how ridiculous I think that is....
But my sweet girl became a junior in high school today...she is...
my first born, my daughter and my mini-me in many ways!
My son became an 8th grader...he is...
my baby, my only son and he is still a hugger (which I am very thankful for)!
Here they are after their long day (I kid) opening their traditional First Day of School cones (read about the tradition here) that I fill with goodies for them. I put anything in it from earbuds to school supplies to underwear. They have been getting one on the first day of school every single year. I anticipate doing this for them in college too. It is something they LOVE and look forward at the end of each first day of school.
Love you both very much and hope your school year is full of great learning, good friends, quality teachers and happy memories!
BIG FAT MAMA HUGS to you both!!
