"I pity the fool"

So here we are. The end of the first week of school. This first photo is almost an exact replica of my sister and I when we were younger in front of our house on the first day of school. It is awesome and a little cheesy. Looking back at our 1st day of school photos is one of my favorite things to do. Anyway, this a really exciting time because Amelia has started Kindergarten! Now,... to why I "pity the fool". I will be the first to admit that my kids are pretty amazing in almost every way! Of course, I'm the parent.... so thinking your kids are great is pretty standard. So, the week before school started I had parents asking me how I was doing,.. "Are you emotional?", "Do you have the tissues ready?", "Are you going to be an emotional mess"? To which I answered, No, No and Nope! I know, sounds terrible. But, these great children have big personalities, are strong willed (Amelia especially and I really don't know where she gets that from) and are just independent little bundles of joy. Really they are!!!! But the truth is they need their time away from me as much as I need time away from them. Back to the "I pity the fool". These photos below are just a taste of what their teachers are in for. I just hope they appreciate their crazy ways as much as I do (no really, I do).
