summer is over. school started today and both nola and sam were very excited - sam, especially. he's been walking his sister to school for the past two years and he is absolutely ready for kindergarten.
just to make certain we knew summer was over - we were greeted with a downpour of rain as we started walking to school (but luckily, not before i had a chance to do the obligatory first day of school photos in our front yard).
here is the morning of the first day of grade 2 and the first day of K in pictures.
