So the Pip started kindergarten today (SteelyKid started third grade on Tuesday), and we got a picture of them hugging me while waiting for the bus to match last year's.

THEY ARE SO HUGE.



[Images: SteelyKid and the Pip hugging me; the Pip very seriously measuring himself against me back-to-back.]

Kindergarten seems to have gone well; he made a delightful self-portrait, and he was cheerful though very very tired this evening. (SteelyKid's an old hand at this now and is also doing great.)

Glad kindergarten seems to go well so far!

I remember being nearly to my mother's shoulder when I was SteelyKid's age, and I'm 5'4ish as an adult. (Slightly taller now than when I stopped growing, thanks to weird scoliosis changes.) Who knows--I've stopped myself from speculating on SK's eventual adult height because my nearest cousin expected to be tall given her father at 6'4, and she's all of 5'5. There were plentiful not-quite-jokes in childhood about how she'd hammer me shorter if I ended up taller than she, with my average-to-shortish parents....

Aidan (now 13) passed Jenny a year or so back and is now 7" taller than her (!). (Keiran's also enjoying third grade, and conspiring with Aidan to learn long division and memorise his multiplication tables so that he can show off. I fully endorse this conspiracy! Also, do I remember correctly that SK plays soccer? They may encounter each other at some stage if so.)

Oh gosh, they're adorable! These pictures are great! Also: THEY'RE BOTH SO BIG. (SteelyKid has such a great smile, and the Pip has a fantastic serious face omg.)
