Late posting on last week's news. I was in Sioux Falls for week from Sunday-Friday night and then racing over the weekend (update later). In the meantime, the twins started 6th grade on Wednesday. The traditional front step picture for this year is above. Funny how they are growing up and gaining independence and yet they wanted to dress as twins. Holly even asked them that morning if "they were sure". I'm sure they were nervous and this was their way of getting comfortable.
Of course, the day went off without a hitch and they are now completing enjoying the new routine. Lockers (with locks and combinations to memorize), home room and class rooms to find for each period, Ala Carte lunch and larger menus.
Before we realize it, we will be planning for senior pictures and graduation. Time to enjoy them while they still let us in their lives.
