Woke up at about 6:45 a.m. to make the kids' traditional pancake breakfast for the first day of school. Then as I always do, I took the kids to their schools. I just dropped off the older two kids. But the younger ones, I walked them to their classrooms. The younger kids each gave their teachers an apple (another tradition that we started last year actually). Then Nathan and I went to the grocery store, the "donut" store (Sheetz, a gas station) for Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It was hard keeping that little guy occupied all day....see my next post for all the fun things we did today. But for now, I leave you with pics of the kids first day of school.
They look SO happy, don't they?
Off they go....
