My oh my, how they've changed

Today marked the last day of school for Miss Monkey (1st grade) and Mr. B (5th grade). I thought it would be interesting to compare photos from their first day vs. last day. Surprisingly they look MUCH more excited on the first day of school (at least Mr. B did). Then again, he told me today he thought it was stupid that I wanted to take his picture this morning...perhaps that explains his scowl a little more.

Miss Monkey had a luau planned at school and she went full out with her outfit. This past year she has really shown more interest in her fashion and puts a LOT of thought into each outfit, her accessories and even her hair. Today, she outdid herself when she insisted that she needed to wash her hair this morning with her coconut scented shampoo ("It goes with my Hawaiian theme, momma.")

First Day...chumming around waiting for the bus.
Last Day...at least one of them remembers how to smile ;o)

I'm so sorry to be laughing, but I *JUST* think it's hysterical that B is already at the age of everything being "stupid" ... it happens too quick!!

Precious to see them on the 1st vs. the last day of school though!

What a great idea to take a picture on the last day of school, too!

wow, that is quite the change in both of them from the 1st day to the last!

Love the wanting to wash the hair to keep with the theme.

Miss Monkey definitely has changed more..she's looking even less little girl...remind me when mine hit 1st grade and have a crisis.
