A conversation I overheard after tucking them in for the night:
Mags: "I don't know if I wanna go to school tomorrow."
Tuck: "Close your eyes and think of all the good things about school. You know, like the riding the bus, eating lunch and going out to recess."
In comparison, Mags looks SO much smaller than Tuck did on HIS first day of Kindergarten. I know it's because I had no one to compare him to, and Mags was two-years-old at the time. He was my big boy...the big brother. Now my little girl...the little sister is getting on the GINORMOUS yellow bus today.
And I'm weepy. And I'm so ecstatic. And I'm a little lost. And I'm...well...like Mags last night...all over the place.
So, I'll leave you all with some of our favorite "Back-to-School" stories and songs that have become staples in our house.
