Kirsten is a second grader this year. She has always had a passion for school. She loves pink. She wanted her whole wardrobe pink but that wasn't really possible. After shopping for four hours on Saturday we were finally able to find a pair of shoes (for PE) in her size and that we (her and I) both liked. I started shopping in Texas for school supplies and backpacks but then I got home and things were crazy and busy again. I really should learn not to leave it to the last minute!McKay is in the 6th grade. Two years ago our district pulled 6th grade back into the elementary school. I was so happy about this. 10 years old is a little young (even though she is really smart) for Jr. High. McKay loves blue. She didn't want anything pink this year. If she had it her way she would throw everything pink that was in her closet away. McKay never has been a morning person (a little like me) and so her smile is a little off. (Did I mention that after we got them off to school that Jake and I went back to bed ourselves. The other kids were still asleep and it had been raining all day and night so it was too muddy to do the work we needy to outside. We also stayed up too late. We need to evaluate our schedule as well.)Another bonus about the school is the bus stop is right in front of our house. It couldn't get any better.It's good to see that as sister's they can still get along, talk, and be friends. (McKay's smile looks a lot better.)The girls were happy when they got home. They both had homework and plenty of papers for me to read. I think I am ready for this again. It's nice to have a schedule. I'm already planning the pre-school I am going to do with Cruz and Katanya this year. Now everything would be great if it could stay good weather for a lot longer than usual.
