The big brother
Since Livi was born, these two have been buddies. Sure, they have their moments (don’t we all?), but for the most part, George and Livi are the best of friends. Today George, the big brother who’s been known to place himself between his little sister and a neighbor kid’s super soaker, started second grade.
And his little sister was there to see him off.
I may have forced them to take a couple more photos together…
…though this pose was 100 percent their doing.
The first day of second grade was a fairly successful one even if George didn’t see the note I wrote on his lunch napkin because he was too busy using it to wipe an extreme amount of Gogurt off his shirt.
Later he told me he didn’t read it because it would be too embarrassing. *sigh*
Today this one starts first grade.
Though I’ve been looking forward to all four kids attending school all day (that half-day kindergarten thing nearly killed me), it’s a little hard to see your last one grow up so quickly. Fortunately I don’t have to worry about Livi at school—she has the best big brother in the world looking out for her.
