Or, three little maids on their way to school, anyway.
I must warn you, first day of school pictures are my favorite of the year. I love them. I even love looking at other people's first day of school pictures. And so, obviously, when it comes to my own kids, I especially adore them.
Okay, now to the lots of pictures part.
All three girls ready to go on the front porch.
Bria, the fourth grader with some attitude. :)
Full body shot. It was actually quite warm (upper 80's), but both Bria and Chloe had been so excited about wearing their new hoodies that I let them.
New backpacks this year.
Chloe has some attitude, too. Just the first-grader variety.
Such a fake smile. I love her shirt. Don't you love her shirt? (That is if you can even see it under her (also adorable) hoodie.)
The obligatory backpack shot.
Sophia. She doesn't have a backpack for preschool (yet). But she does have plenty of leaves.
Cuteriffic! And a fake smile to rival Chloe's.
Aren't they adorable?
We live about 8 blocks from the elementary school. The girls will be bused, but we decided to take them for the first day. School didn't start until 12:30 pm, so we left the house a little after 12 and it took us nearly a half-hour to get there! Every other parent in town had the same idea, it seems, and the traffic was horrendous!
After I got the girls to their respective classes, I took Joel back to his office and then took Sophia to preschool registration. No real class today, just paperwork. I did meet a mom that lives just down the street from me. Get this: She has three daughters. A fourth-grader, a second-grader, and a three-year-old who is in Sophia's class. Her oldest and Bria are also in the same class at school.
I'm thinking they're an answer to prayer.
And the best part? The bus stop is right in front of their house.
