It's officially the school year now, as both kids are back to school! L started her second year of preschool yesterday and she was a total pro at it. Not that she was utterly ecstatic to be there, mind you. When it was her turn to go in, she locked her knees and put on her brakes, which ultimately resulted in Ms. Angela (the bouncer at the door) having to pick L up and carry her to her spot. I'm pretty sure L wasn't nervous or anxious as much as she was looking for a free ride.
It's hard to believe that L is the same age as M was when he first started preschool. For some reason I'm remembering M, at three, being older and more mature than L is now. Maybe it's because M has more of an intense, broody side and L is a little cheeseball. It's hard to say, but if ten years from now they're half-way like anything they are now, then we're in big trouble.

Three-year-old L getting ready to go back to preschool. Best of luck to the Little Lambs staff. (2010)
Two-year-old L on her very first day of preschool. Well, at least we have photographic evidence that she's always had a flair for the dramatic. (2009)
Speaking of cheeseball dramatics, here are a few more pictures from this year.
She's really not as innocent as she looks.
