Sniff, sniff...my babies are back in school! Sara Beth started 2nd grade and Leigh kindergarten! They were so excited and ready to go!
We were able to snap a quick pic with our neighbors across the street. Our neighborhood will be a lot quieter now--well, at least until 3:00!
Leigh opening her book and showing it to the class. She brought "Every Cowgirl Goes to School".

Sarah and Sara Beth won't know how to handle it when they aren't in class together. They've been together since they were 2!
So...oh...Saturday afternoon I finally got around to thinking about our annual back to school dinner. I guess I didn't think about it because I just wasn't ready for summer to end. I asked the girls what they wanted to eat and they said asparagus and mac and cheese. Z piped in that he would like some oven fried chicken. So, that settled the menu! Since yesterday was a half day, both girls helped a lot with dinner.
And we even had time for some apple art. (Just fyi it is a cute idea that just doesn't work.) The kids had fun making a mess!
After showers Daddy got home from his deacons meeting and we were able to eat a late dinner! Everything below cost $3.50 thanks to free printables online and Office Depot! Definitely a fun and cheap way to celebrate going back to school!
Saw these in Family Fun! Super easy! They used caramels rolled out instead of pretzels so theirs looked neater!
We are ready for a great 2013-2014 school year!
