All smiles and no tears on their first day! This is their first year to be in separate classes at school. It has been great for them to have a little independence, and now they are genuinely happy (for the most part) to see each other when they are able to at school and then at home in the afternoons. I think separating them will help somewhat with the competition that comes along with them being the same age. If only I can manage to keep it all straight...whew! That part is exhausting! They are growing up so quickly, though...I'm trying to soak it up as best as I can in the midst of the busyness that comes along with raising three. I'm SO blessed to be their mom!
