It's the first day of school!!

I just dropped the kids at their respective schools and took Sam to her "testing day" which was just a fifteen minute readyness test to make sure the kindergarteners know most of their ABD's and can count to twenty.

Tomorrow is the big day for the littlest elementary schoolgoers. They always look like they get smaller every year. Line them up next to those incoming fifth graders and they are positively dinky.

Of course, Madison started junior high this morning, so she and her Got Too Big For Our Elementary Britches Classmates are back down to the bottom of the Totem Pole. It's so cute to see them with their cocky grins and super-stylin' jams when I know that come first period they're all going to have that look of fear in their big-as-saucers eyes.

The only one I'm sad for right now is Lily. She got the teacher she really wanted, but her bestie went to another school and she discovered this morning in line-up that three of last year's Most Dreaded are in her class again. :( Poor Lily. She just can't catch a break. I can only hope that those Most Dreaded have changed a bit over the summer. *sigh*
