Let's start this post with a little nostalgic look back at Michaela's first day of Kindergarten:
Michaela wanted to recreate the picture she took with Dan that morning:
And here she is now, starting her last year of middle school. Sigh.
Jenna was thrilled to be starting fourth grade with Ms. Lawler, who taught Michaela and we all loved.
Jenna even painted her nails black and orange, the school colors.
Michaela had me straighten her hair and I curled Jenna's.
Once again I thanked God that he sent me a son for my third child.
And off they went!
This was the picture Dan and I posted on Facebook that day at lunch time: "Dear Michaela, Jenna, and Alec, While you were slaving away at school, Dad and I absolutely did not have any fun at home. And we certainly did NOT go out to lunch. We only pined away for you. Happy first day of school! Love, Mom and Dad- at Swifty's Restaurant and Pub."
