First Day of School

Nervous Excited.
Happy curious.
That's what they were. 

It all started last night.
Dinner. Table set. Family over. 
We prayed for a wonderful school year.

clothes were laid out.
they had been picked and laid out for days.

i created this for each of them.

they both wanted their hair in curlers.

so at 6:45pm, i ran to the store to pick up some extras. 
we weren't sure we had enough.

they slept through the night.
not one fell out.

but in the morning one of them thought is was too curly. so i blew it out. 

out the door. and on our way.

a lil' something for the teachers. 
easy peasy.
home cut flowers
recycled bottles
and a little note that says have a great first day

and their off. 
can't wait to hear all about it.
it's gunna be a good one. 
i can just feel it.

Kristy, your girls are just so adorable! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! I can't wait for my bracelet, I'm so excited! I was thinking of giving it as a gift but I think it's going to be hard to part with! ;-) BTW, would you still like to do a give away? No pressure, just curious! Oh and you do not have to do anything for the blog roll. I'll add you, it's still in draft form.
