"Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom."

—Oprah Winfrey

Sometimes minis are just what you need, because the afternoon of these kids first day of school, the clouds were rolling in and the rain was on its way. Luckily this brother and sister were ready to rock'n'roll and they held their signs, did their jumps, ran around a bit and we were done just in time to get rained on as we walked back to our cars! But thats ok! Everyone was a good sport about it because whats better than the first day of school? The excitement of meeting your teacher for the first time, wearing a brand new outfit, and seeing your friends after a summer apart. Take a peek below to see how we commemorated the first day of a new school year!

Pre-School!

Holding back the giggles!

And because it takes a village, we can't forget the rest of the family!

Why no roar like dinosaurs?!

Everyone now!

Hooray for the 1st Day!
