Back to School 2009!

So today is back to school for us.

Quinn started grade 4 and it was Griffin's big day starting Grade 1!!

It went very well. Griffin was super chuffed and smiley and Quinn was very caring and supportive towards him. I must say I don't find days like this sad and teary at all. I feel more happy and proud and impressed with them than anything else.

Griff dressed himself, Quinn helped him with shoe laces and I did his tie.

I can't wait to pick them up later and hear how it went. Griff is going straight to after-care - but it's right outside his classroom and he knows everyone there already since Q has been there for 3 years so he'll be fine Smile

Here are some pics:

All of us at various times this morning including Roxy (of course) and our trusty nanny Tiny.
