She's got the look

of a high school freshman.  Seems like my wee one was just starting Montessori at the Kids Club and throwing out words like "Ombassy" and "Caracalus."  Now she is 14, 5'8" (?!) and very much her own person.  Her review of the first day?  "Okay."  Given I know that was not my review of my first day of high school, I'll take it.

Mind you, I had just asked her to smile. I know, I know...

It would not have surprised me if she slept in her patrol belt. So excited!



Now, I'm not that kind of super mom that actually remembers signs (and some are so fancy!) that you will have to take my word for it that Kelsey is a 5th grader.  As you can tell, she is also on Patrol this year.  She was very excited to be nominated and even had a training day (to include having to evacuate a turned over bus).  No word from her yet, as school is still in session!  Apparently, someone in the school system wants to keep us on our toes, so the school start/end times changed again.  She now gets out of school at 3:55 p.m.  To Cait's chagrin (since her bus showed up 5 minutes early at 6:35 a.m. today), Kelsey does not even get picked up for school until 8:50 a.m. (or so, since today was 9:10 a.m.).

See?! Never a dull moment here!

He might have been more excited about Kelsey's first day...

Then we have the Mister Mister and you will have to wait until tomorrow for the official photo. These are just unofficial fun photos since today was just "Meet the Teacher" day at his Montessori.  He has Mrs. D. for the third year in a row and starts afternoon enrichment this year (which will help me if I do get into Spanish at FSI).  To say he is excited is an understatement.  He kept his feelings in check today, but I think once I'm not hanging around, he is going to have a great time in his class.

Oh and the last picture?  Not to post and scare everyone half to death (the hair, I know, it's humid, okay?), but Nicholas took it and I thought it turned out quite nicely.  Well, besides me and my stylin' outfit, but there's always Photoshop.
