Back to School!!!

Today was the first day of school for Riley AND Paige. Crazy to think that Paige is in school, but she's totally ready for it. She was SO excited last night - she kept saying she wished "it was tomorrow already!"

Riley, of course, was a different story. He's not a huge fan of school, even though he does really well. He woke up this morning and said, "Nobody say the "S" word!" But you could tell that deep down, he was a bit excited. He kept telling Paige what to expect and where to go, and they planned to meet each other when school was over.

When we got to school, Paige was ready. She looked a bit nervous, but we have no doubt that she'll make a ton of friends in no time. Can't wait for her to come home and listen to her stories about her first day of school.

As for Owen, he's home alone. We are looking forward to that - although we are afraid he'll get a bit bored. But in any event, it's time to party - the kids are back in school!!!
