Ok, so as you know, particularly if we are Facebook friends, I take a pic of my girls every morning before school.
And this morning was only different in that I took the pic in front of the school instead of on our driveway.
I'm not sure what was going on at school, but must've been something, because I actually parked the car and walked my little darlings in the school.
Something seriously awesome has occured at the Groves house... my girls are basically wearing the same size. DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MEANS?! It means much less buyer's remorse over kids' clothes, because now I can say, "Well, it's for BOTH of them!" ha
And I am assuming Ellie was struck by some sort of tranquilizer gun prior to school to get her to do this!
I mean, is this presh or what?!
Gabbi Girl looks like Crystal Gayle!
We just had a couple of inches cut off. And she was telling Polly to cut it short. Ellie has been saying she wants hers short too. She goes to school with Priscilla Robertson (or Duck Dynasty fame... Jep's youngest daughter), and she wants her hair cut like Priscilla's.
It's a short bob. I said we'd revisit that request right after the recital. We are for SHO not doing anything radical until we've made that big, beautiful bun for the dance recital in May.
This is just about as sweet as it gets.
Gabbi has got to be the most affectionate kid I have ever met. She loves to LOVE!
And eveeeery once in a while, Ellie loves back! This was one of those perfect storm moments!
Gabs LOVES to go to school with Ellie. She just feels so big walking those halls. Now, to figure out if she is ready to walk them alone! I think about that a lot. But, I realize that when it all boils down, I have another 3 months to enjoy her and not make that decision, so I need to just let it go.
Gabs headed to the office with mama when we dropped her big sister off.
I'm gonna miss my baby being able to do that with me. I like the freedom of not HAVING to be at school every day.
We go to the bank.
We are greeted by people there who love us!
Miss Lisa hooked a sista UP on suckers!
I insta'd this one!
And eventually, we went back and picked up this nut!
I've started taking off on Fridays, and I try to pick Ellie up a little early, and we all go do something fun! Ellie LOVES this tradition. She only has two more weeks of school, so I figure at this point, it's not that big of a deal to miss the last hour of the week each week.
I've pretty much lined out the summer help. KK now has a job as an engineer. NOT COOL! I told her, she has her whole life to be an engineer, but my babies will only be young once! It's not working! I think that whole "paycheck" thing has her priorities all messed up!
But we're excited that she is out of college and has a big girl job! As for Mary Allison, she's headed straight to Baton Rouge as fast as she can get there to be a big ol' LSU tiger! Today was her last official day of high school. I know her mom would be so proud.
Well, that's what's up in our world... tomorrow is FRIDAY!! Whoop Whoop!
