First day of Middle School!


Yesterday was Madeline's first day of Middle School. She was pretty excited. We all had to get up much earlier than we are used to. She had to be there at 7:30. Its so hard to believe she is this old already. 
It's nice to finally have all three girls in school. Margo and Lydia have been in school for a month now. I know Madeline enjoyed the last month at home, staying up late and sleeping in!
Here she is before going in.  Hey, at least she let me take a picture of her in front of the school!  She actually wanted me to walk her in.  We got about halfway down the hall, when a teacher stopped me to go sign in at the office.  Madeline looked at me and said, "You can go."  So it begins.  She had a great first day and is filling me in on all of the rules and teachers' personalities.  Here's to a great year!

Margo's 1st day of Kindergarten!

Today's the day!  Our baby girl started Kindergarten--yep the last of the Grimes girls to go to school.

She's been ready for quite some time now.  She was very excited. 

Posing with Lydia.
 
My baby girl!
 
At the school.
 
 
Lydia walking her to class.

She found her desk and got busy coloring.

With her teacher, Mrs. Pilkington.  Madeline and Lydia had her for their last year of Preschool.  We've now come full circle since Margo now has her for Kindergarten. All of our girls love Mrs. Pilkington!

I took a few pictures and asked her if she was ready for me to leave and she said yes.  I know she'll be fine!  I hope she has a good day.  Can't wait to hear all about it when I pick her up.
 
Last night we read this book before bed.


A few weeks ago Margo went for her five-year-old checkup.  I was prepared for the worst.  Well, at least my ears were.

Here she is getting her finger pricked and chatting it up with the lab tech!

She did GREAT!  Four shots, a finger prick and NO TEARS!!!  She just said, "OWWW, OWWW, OWWW".  By far the best of the three girls for the Kindergarten shots doctor's visit.


After the doctor, we went to Target for an Icee and to get her school supplies.

 
She had her Kindergarten assessment last week.  Earlier this week, we went to meet the teacher and carry in school supplies.  I think from this picture, you can tell that she loved her classroom!


Dancing around with friends Brianna and Grier.


She and Bri are happy to be in the same classroom.  They have really gotten a lot closer this summer and have been spending lots of time together.  Yes, they were dressed the same on this day and NO, it wasn't planned!



We went to lunch after the meet and greet!
 
After going through pictures, I realized I never posted any end of the year pics from Preschool.  Here is Margo with her preschool teacher, Mrs. Giddens, at the Preschool Program.

With her certificate for completing Preschool.  Now on to Kindergarten.  Here's hoping for a great first year of school!

This girl is a mess.  A spitfire.  A sass.  A handful.  BUT... she's our baby girl and we love her.  Especially when she does sweet things like picking her mama some weeds :)
