The One with the First Day of School 2016

Olivia Kate 5th & Jonah Daniel 2nd
The first week of school is almost over.  
It's been a great week.  The kids are getting so big and look so grown.

I hope they both have a great year!!! 

Olivia had braces put on last week.
There is no shame in her smiling game.
I love that! She just rocks at being herself.

Jonah Bear (which I've been told I can only call him at home now) did not want to show any teeth...I have no idea why.  He's just too cool for school.
