So the much anticipated day came and went, McKinley's first day of Kindergarten! She was so excited, and even though I shed a few tears at how big our little girl is getting I am so happy for her to experience new and exciting things. She just got right on the bus and didn't even look back. She has a lot of great friends in Mrs. Crane's class with her and it has already been so fun. Monday night they had a "Kindergarten Kick Off" night where the whole family got to go to the school and McKinley gave us a tour, she thought she was pretty hot stuff for sure.

I tried to take some pictures of the girls before we went to the Bus Stop. Prior to this experience I was contemplating getting updated family pictures taken, I've decided we are not ready for that since these are the best ones, that's right, these below are the best ones.Waiting for the bus

Just as most moms probably wish, I hope that McKinley's love of learning lasts a LONG time!

Quincy is ONE!

Because of the little trip and all the chaos surrounding the half marathon, we didn't really get to have a proper celebration on Miss Quincy's birthay, so the Sunday after we had a real shin-dig.She got to open presents...

And have some cake, here is BEFORE....and AFTER..

We sure love our little Quincy Lulu. She is such a trooper and brings so much joy to our lives with her happy personality. She is almost walking, but not quite and is quite possibly the most wiggly human being EVER. Happy Birthday Quinc!
