The girls were VERY excited to start school yesterday. Louise, who told us Wednesday evening that she doesn't "usually" like the first day of school, woke early and repeatedly asked, "Now? Can we go to the bus stop now? Now?" Charlotte was also keen, and although she's in afternoon Kindergarten, wore her backpack to the bus stop at 8am.
We asked our school children what they wished to be when they grew up. Louise eventually settled on veterinarian. Claire wanted to be a dog, "so Louise can take care of me." Charlotte wants to be a pop star.
Louise loved her music class, and wants to take violin lessons. But her favorite part of the day was lunch - not surprising, since she was too excited to eat breakfast.
