This morning both kids began school. Little Girl enters the second grade and Little Man Pre-Kindergarten. I will be posting their annual school photo this evening but for now let's have a trip down memory lane.
Little Man started out in the nursery school program in August 2006. I was such a wreck and cried the entire day as I missed him terribly. Him? He had so much fun and when I picked him up he was happily eating Rice Krispies. Click HERE for the post from that day.
Little Girl joined our family in July 2008 and began kindergarten in August 2008. We were particularly nervous given the fact that she had very little command of the English language. Our fears were laid to rest quickly as she was both excited to begin and very quickly made friends and was speaking English fluently almost immediately after beginning school.

First grade came all too quickly for me. Suddenly we had a little girl who was smart, eager to learn and focused on her studies. We acquired a fantastic tutor (who is now Little Man's Pre-K teacher) to help her along and she soared higher than we ever could have expected. Click HERE for her first day as a first grader.
