Hoda Kotb left the Today show early on Wednesday to take her two kids for their first day of school. And on Thursday, it was Savannah Guthrie's time to do the same!

After co-anchoring the news alongside Kotb for the NBC morning show's first half hour, Guthrie dipped out to be there for 9-year-old daughter Vale and 6-year-old son Charley's milestones.

"Savannah had to leave early," Craig Melvin said, as he stepped in for Guthrie at the news desk. "It's her kids' first day of school, so best of luck to Vale and Charley."

"Yeah, happy first day!" said Kotb.

Tennis wasn't the only event on the Guthrie family calendar this summer. Earlier in August, the journalist took Vale to one of Taylor Swift's sold-out Eras Tour shows at Los Angeles' SoFi Stadium.

"Memories for a lifetime with my beautiful girl," Guthrie wrote on Instagram, captioning a video commemorating the night out. "Thank you @taylorswift for singing your heart out every single night."

The mother-daughter duo, according to the post, traded friendship bracelets and sang along to Swift's hits throughout the three-hour performance. "Feeling so grateful and lucky to have seen this in person with the little girl of my wildest dreams ❤️," Guthrie wrote.

"Goodbye sweet summer! Hello autumn, here we come!" Guthrie wrote.
