Back to School 2011

Wednesday was the girls' first day of school.

They were excited about going was I!

My only disappointment was the chilly, rainy day. I didn't think I'd be able to take our annual pics. Luckily before we left for school the rain slowed down to a slight drizzle & I had the girls stand in front of the house for the annual pics. Marissa is now in 5th grade & was so excited to get the teacher she wanted. It's also her last year in this school before going to middle school....I hope the year goes nice & slow...I don't want to even think about her in middle school!! I don't know what happened to Marissa's hair but I swear this is not how she wears her hair.Gianna is now in second grade. Hard to believe my baby is growing up. Unfortunately I didn't get the annual pic in front of the school because of the rain, but that's ok....I guess. :( I did quickly snap these pics of the girls before going into the gym to line up. Figured it was better than nothing.

They both had a great first day. Marissa loves her class & sits across from her best friend in class. Gianna doesn't like school but knows she has to make the best of it. I think it's just the classwork/homework she doesn't like but she just lumps it all together.

It rained all day that day AND night. The next morning at 5:45am we got a phone call from school telling us school was closed due to area flooding & the highway being closed. Areas of our town got hit bad by Hurricane Irene but luckily our street was fine. So this second flood in such a short period of time was hard for our town to take. I was a little shocked that we already had a school closure but if you saw all the rain we got hit with you'd understand. Today the school's had a 2 hour delayed opening. The girls were actually upset that they missed school yesterday & were happy to go today. Go figure.

I have a busy weekend ahead with a wedding tomorrow & a birthday party for my neice & nephew on Sunday. I hope to find some time soon to post pics from our trip. I swear they are not all Disney! Shocking I know!!
