New Beginnings (Alternate Title ... They've FINALLY Started School)

The girls started school yesterday. Thank the sweet lord. After almost thirteen weeks of togetherness, they needed to go back. They needed a new routine. They needed to get out of my hair.

Let's be honest. I love my girlies. Just as much as anyone else. Maybe even more. *wink* But holy heck, we had a long summer. Filled with amazing adventures. Lots of moving around. Big changes.

It was time. Time for the girls to make friends. To build roots. To play and not worry about anything.

And yes, it was also time for this mom to have a minute to herself.





Aren't they adorable in their new outfits from Children's Place?
Love that store!!




The girlies with their buddies ...



Sheridan's teacher is apparently THE rock star teacher at the school.


The girls had a great first few days. I managed to get a majority of the house almost picture ready. And one of these days I'll even get back online and answer emails...

Yay! Love the back to school shots of your cuties! So glad you'll have some time to...be!

Hallelujah! They look so happy and super cute in their new outfits!

They are too cute! Those outfits sum up why I wanted girls, but, sigh, all I have are boys. I hope you managed to take a little time for yourself while they were off at school.

Yay for back to school! They look adorable and ready to take on the world (and in long sleeves, holy cow, my kids won't be wearing long sleeves to school for months yet, the store isn't even selling long sleeved school shirts yet because holy crap it's hot here).

Enjoy the quiet(er) time - you've earned it mom!

Yay for routine! Glad the girls are off to such a good start. Their outfits are absolutely adorable.

I am in awe of how fast you can make a house a home. Kuddos!

How's Grady doing without them around?

Oh my gosh, Jill - they are ADORABLE! You are so blessed to have both a boy AND girls. What I would do to have even *one* girl in addition to my boys! Jealous of you!

yay, back to school! They look SO cute (I love TCP too!!!) and I'm glad you'll get a little break to rejuvenate yourself. Grady is going to be excited to have mama all to himself!

I'm so glad they had a great first few days. YAY SCHOOL!!!!

Ahem.

I'd bet that 90% of my kids wardrobes comes from The Children's Place. Love it.

Love the Children's place and your daughters are gorgeous! I hope they enjoy their new school, and you enjoy your time to get settled in.

Your girls are both beautiful. Love the pom poms on the knee socks. I LOVE knee socks on kids. I'm so glad they are off to school.
