Yesterday was Thomas and Caroline's first day of school in their new classes! Thomas moved up to the Young Toddlers class (Caroline's old class!) and Caroline moved up to the Twos class. Tear!
The first day was a bit hectic as we were two hours late after noticing Thomas had lost a contact. We also missed "Parent Night" while we were on vacation so we had no clue where Caroline's new class was located. And we forgot diapers and wipes for both kids. Oh, and breakfast was already over and C's classroom was empty (we later found her friends on the playground) by the time we arrived. So yeah, not the smoothest first day of school but neither kid cried so I'll count it as a success!
In Thomas's new class he now sleeps on a mat which I always find incredibly impressive and he also no longer uses a paci. As for Caroline's class, the biggest change is the class size. There are 14 kids(!!!) in her class now which also blows my mind. I honestly cannot imagine chasing 14 toddlers around for 8 hours.
Naturally, I snapped a few "first day of school" pics...
Caroline only snuck one contraband item past me into her backpack - my lip blam. Normally I wouldn't care but I'm down to my last pot (all of my others have strangely disappeared) of my favorite lip balm so I promptly slipped it back into my pocket when I discovered it while unpacking her bag at school. That girl, so sly.
When the kiddos arrived home I asked Caroline what her favorite part of her first day was and she told me it was the pineapple she had for lunch.So I'd say we're off to a GREAT school year ahead!
