The last first day

My little birds have flown the coop.  New dresses ironed and new book bags packed with contraband (a blanket and a much loved stuffed animal), Mischief and Mayhem were ready for the first day of school this morning.  

The beginning of this new school year marks the end of a photo series for Mischief.  This being her last first day of preschool.  Those small unsure steps down the walk in 2010 have grown into a confident stride.

Mayhem, you'll have Daddy all to yourself next year.  And proud of you Mischief, you've come a long way since this creative version of your ABCs.

My heart just melted. It's a puddle on the kitchen floor. Your girls are so lovely. You must be so proud, Mom! Good luck to Miss Mischief and Miss Mayhem - hope it's a year full of adventures for them. XO

Couldn't be any sweeter! And reminded me I forgot, for the first time, to take a pic of T's first day (3rd). Sad. May stage a faux first day tomorrow?
That video? Adorable. Wheels came off at l.m.n.o.p - didn't stop Mischief - she made it her own. Ha!

MK: you must staged the make-up pic haaa

Where has the year gone?! I'm just back from a bit of a blogging break and I vividly remember your post from the first day last year. What beautiful girls you have. I hope you had a wonderful summer and that the school year holds lots of blessings!

A plus and I vote for your girls for future Presidents.
We need somebody who know's their P's & Q's.

Thanks Crissy, glad you are back from what I'm sure has been a fruitful summer with your family.

Patricia, you never fail to make me LAUGH!
