My Twins Started Kindergarten!


My kids didn’t start school at the same time this year, my oldest began Grade 4 three days before her sisters. It was really odd having this staggered ‘back to school’ routine, I really can’t say I liked it at all.

The worst part was that it really confused the twins, they kept asking why their sister was at school and they weren’t. We all know how repetitive this gets {worse than ‘are we there yet’}, so when the day finally came for them, we were all more than happy.


 Last week I shared a photo of Isabelle’s First Day of Grade 4.

This post? It’s dedicated to the twins and their first day of Kindergarten. How’d that sneak up so fast? Smiles on and ready to go, they were so excited. Unlike their older daughter too, I was able to get a TON of photos to commemorate the day {as in, not just one photo then many eye-rolls thereafter}.

 Yet, new and unknown is a little intimidating. They listened and took it all in, yet never left each others side. In fact, when on the tour of the school, this is how they walked. And didn’t.let.go.

Let it stand for the record that these two hardly ever hold hands. Even when crossing the street and I ask them to, is met with some degree of complaining and arguing. So this moment captured? I die!!

It was agreed by the twins that Kindergarten is about the best thing ever. First day, success!

My little Miss Katie & Sophia … Kinders!




  1. I absolutely adore the Hello Kitty and the outfits…they look like pink perfection! i’m so glad they had a great first day of Kindergarten and I hop they have many more to come! 🙂

  2. My oldest boy just started pre-school. I think my wife had a harder time with it than him lol. “my baby is growing up so fast!”. Great blog btw.

  3. I love that they are holding hands, especially, knowing that they aren’t really hand holders! I cried when I left my first daughter at kindergarten; she was fine! lol

  4. May they have a great school year, learn well, and stay away from trouble when trouble comes looking.

  5. I LOVE the photo of them holding hands! I’m sure they’ll love Kindergarten – thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. thats cute, my friends granddaughter has just started junior kindergarten and she was upset when there wasnt any school on Saturday. I thought that was really cute.

    1. My girls said the same thing on Saturday!! Hope that always stays, since i’m sure there’ll come a point when they will not want to go!

  7. How sweet! Are they in the same class? That’s good they have each other through a sometimes scary event.

    I remember how you posted about them not wanting to keep their diapers on. Time sure does slip on by. Isaak started Kindergarten on the 14th of August.

    1. omg, that seems like just yesterday, wow!! So happy you remember that post, so nice of you to have read my blog for that long. 🙂

      Hope Isaak had a great first {almost} month!!

    1. Thanks Monica, it really is the sweetest. Makes me smile each time i look at that photo!

    1. YES and YES! I really do feel lucky x2 then one more with my oldest. Having twins has truly been the most AWESOME experience.

  8. How in the world did they get old enough to go to kindergarten? How does time fly so fast? absolutely adorable and they look so much like you!

  9. Congrats to them on their first day of Kindergarten! Wishing them a successful year! Love how they are holding hands 🙂

    1. Yes, I think so too. I would have loved to have a sister like they have. Such a special relationship!

  10. so sweet! My youngest started Kindergarten this year too! in our district, they all started on the same day, but the neighboring district had the kinder “slow start” as well. too confusing! I was just glad to see them off on the same morning! bittersweet, but still so proud! 🙂

  11. How cute are they!! I would miss them during the day that’s for sure! The Hello Kitty just tops it off 🙂

    1. I think it’s so that they get used to the teacher/school without ALL the kids there, maybe makes it easier for some?

  12. So beautiful! 🙂 Who was the first day harder for – you or them? 🙂 I hope their first day went well!

  13. I love the Hello Kitty outfits and backpacks. Hello Kitty has been a favorite of mine for decades!

  14. It’s so nice for your twins that they can have each other there for support on their first day of kindergarten! I guess that’s one of the perks of being twins.

  15. their outfits are so cute!!!!! can’t believe how fast time goes when you have kids!

  16. aww.. you must enjoy those quiet moments at home now! I know I look forward to the girls going to school and the silence that befalls after. I don’t know about your ladies, but mine have the gift of gab… fast gab!

  17. Good for them, and good for you! Kindergarten can be scary but once they are in the door a fabulous thing.

  18. what beautiful children, I’m sure it was an exciting day for all of you. So sweet that they held hands all the time. As a twin myself I found one of the most annoying things was that we only ever seemed to count together. First question when I was on my own was always where my sister was! Now if she had only been a sister and not a twin no one would have bother asking. Weird eh?

  19. the kid look like a great deal andtheni had twin a glri and boy and then they were a hand full

  20. Glad to hear they had a wonderful first day and how sweet of the two of them to hold hands 🙂

  21. Your girls are absolutely adorable. I remember well many years ago, they are 27 now, when mine girls started Kindergarten. They put them in separate classes and pretty well all through school it was that way.
