As we were taking pictures Bennett's friend from down the street was leaving for school. She was so excited to see another friend headed off to their first day as well.

 Don't look so excited, Lainey. You are staying at home with me until you are 15.

This picture captures their personalities perfectly.

 Beautiful beautiful picture! These two look so much alike.

Trying to hold it together. Me, not Bennett.

 We found her spot.

 Settling in.

 Time for the parents to say good-bye.
 And little brothers too.

Waving good-bye

Will walking bravely alone into his pre-school class. He was very sad that Bennett wasn't at school with him.

 Ready for a great year!

 Me and my buddy.

And here is his picture post school. Thumbs up for a great first day!

Bennett had requested rice krispie treats for a snack when she got home. Will helped me make them while we waited on her. He had a hard time waiting for her to come home. He is never apart from her and he was about to have a fit to go and pick her up.

 And she's back!!! Her thoughts about the day- It was great! I really liked PE. I have a new friend named Haleigh. There were more bigger kids than I thought. I thought it would just be kids my age. A boy kept touching my nap mat but I told him to stop. Music class was soooooo fun.

 I think Will was more excited than anyone. He was talking a mile a minute telling her all about his day and asking her a million questions. I absolutely love these two.

 I don't think I've ever been so happy to see her.

Now what do you mean we have to do this all again tomorrow?

Bennett asked to get in her pajamas the second she got home. Of course I let her and she ate her rice krispie treats laying on the couch in her pj's. When she heard Lainey on the monitor she asked if she could go get her up. Will followed her upstairs and then I heard tons of giggling and laughing. This is what I found. You think these three missed each other?
