First day of first grade and first day of preschool were big days in our house. Gabby was thrilled to take her backpack and her lunch for a full day of school. Zack was so excited to have a school bag just like Gabby's when she was in preschool. He couldn't WAIT to get there and meet new friends, play with the guinea pigs, play with the trains, and have circle time. Oh, they are surely growing up.
