First day of school

I have been a HUGE slacker on blogging this year.  It's partly the PTA's fault, though.  OR well, my fault for volunteering with the PTA...  I am in charge of this year's fundraisers and we have decided to put on a Carnival!  Needless to say it's been a huge undertaking planning an event for 1200 students (700 families).  But that is neither here nor there.  This post is about my kidlets...  They had a great first day of school.  Lilia is getting so big (it is breaking my heart)!  She started 2nd grade this year, and is doing fabulous!  She is currently reading at third grade levels, and is just a little ahead of the curve with math.  Her new teacher is a no nonsense kind of lady, and I think that is just what Lilia needs this year.  I couldn't be more excited for my girl!

 She got a new BIGGER bike for her birthday, but we gave it to her a week early so she could ride it to school with her friends.
 And she is off!  I sure love that girl!

 Lacey started her second year of preschool and is doing really well!  She seems to finally be catching on to letters and the sounds they make.  She is a great little counter and loves seeing her friends twice a week.  She is such a cute little ham!
