I have had so many people ask me about how the twins first day of school went. Last week I wrote a blog about Back to School safety and the Florida State sales tax holiday as my twins Laura and Kathryn were about to start Kindergarten. I wanted to give you a quick update on how it went.

Laura about to start her first day at Winter Springs ElementaryBoth girls were decked out in Hello Kitty, with Hello Kitty Shirts, a Skirt with Hello Kitty on it and of course their brand new Hello Kitty backpacks. I drove them to their new school, Winter Springs Elementary School, home of the Kangaroos, and dropped them off with their teachers. Both girls had been in the Free Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program that is offered by Florida State to prepare children for entering into Kindergarten.



Laura was very excited to start learning. She quickly found her name at her seat and sat down to color.

As we said good bye to her, she let us know that she would draw a picture for us to bring home.



Kathryn at Winter Springs ElementaryIn another classroom, I said good bye to her identical twin sister, Kathryn. It was much harder for Kathryn to say good bye and I was met with a bit of resistance to leaving. I stayed with her until the bell rang and class was about to start. As I left she gave me a big hug and didn't want to let go. Oh, sometimes it is so hard to be a parent. I left hoping that both would be having a great time and making new friends.


We at The Viking Team, Realty hope that those parents who have kids in school had a pleasant first day of school and lots of hugs and kisses from the little ones when they came back home.
