2nd and 3rd

Second and Third Grades, we have arrived.
As a small side note I would just like to say that yes, I am shallow. For the entire part of my life that I can actually remember I have considered the buying and strategic planning out of school outfits the most important part of the the first week or so of school. Especially important is the FIRST DAY. I am slightly irritated that the boys have now grown up enough to have an opinion where school clothes are concerned. I still want to do all the picking and get the cool clothes. They too want the cool clothes, its just that our idea of cool greatly differs. I just have to publicaly state I do not think Star Wars Clone Wars shirts are cool. Or cute. Same goes for Sponge Bob. A few years ago, I would have outlawed them. But these boys are wearing me down. At least they didn't make an appearance on the first day. And seriously. This is the best picture they would give me. You should have seen the others. They were just too excited to hold still. Oh well. All that said, they're still the cutest 2nd and 3rd graders I know.

I try my hardest to "gently persuade" the girls to wear what I want them to for school. If you've seen Ruby lately you know I lose more times than I win with her.

I am with you about the character print stuff. NO WAY....except for Hello Kitty that is :)
