Back to School for the Twins Plus One

Today is Back to School! My oldest is now in Grade 5 and the twins just started Grade 1.

2014 back to school twins plus one

Myself? I have my days free, a first in 10 years. Yes, there were a few teary moments and it was hectic to get 3 kids settled into 3 different classes in only a matter of minutes.

Yet, they are there and I am here. The house is quiet. It’s just me and my coffee, and the sounds of the keys as I type.

I miss you summer break, you were fantastic. But, this feels mighty fine too. Ahhh.



  1. My daughter is in college but I remember those mixed emotions on the first day of school like it was yesterday. Enjoy the peace and quiet {until they come home ;)}

    Your kids are gorgeous btw!

  2. What a fun day for the girls, but a sorta sad one for you. But I remember those days, and I did enjoy those quit days, “for a while”. Thanks for sharing on Oh My Heartsie Girl this week!!
    Enjoy your day!

  3. They look so stylish in their matching jackets. Your oldest is looking more, and more like you.
    Do they not have all day Kindergarten there?
    Mine have been in school for 4 weeks now. It was nice having Labor Day there to break up the days.

    1. No, we have half-day Kindergarten here. Some schools have all day but twice per week. So, it’s a first to have them all gone, all day. Eeeek! And she does doesn’t she?! Hoping thats a good thing! lol

  4. Cute photo. It’s hard to believe your kids are just now going back to school. We’ve been at school for a full month already.

  5. I like all the activities and fun my children were involved in, watching them grow is beautiful.

  6. I’ve been following your blog for some time now, I can’t believe the girls are that big already! Did you ask for the twins to be in separate classes? Or did it just work out that way?

  7. great picture the oldest and the twin on the left in picture smile the same.

  8. The first day of grade 1 was a success for our 6 yr old little girl. Hope your kids had a great day too I noticed tons of back to school photo’s on facebook from everyone nice to see.

  9. I can’t believe your oldest is in grade 5 and the twins have started grade 1!! Time passes so quickly!!

  10. The girls look adorable! Hope their first day went great! Enjoy your quiet time!

  11. I hear ya! Both my girls are in school full time and it’s so quiet around my house now. Nice, but strange at the same time. Enjoy the quiet while it lasts! 😉
