Back to School

Today was the day! The day for schedules to begin again, alarm clocks to rudely wake us up, and (most importantly) the day to wear the NEW clothes! I've got a kindergartner, a 3rd grader, and a 5th grader this year. So exciting for them all! (And I know I should have taken the time to edit and crop these pictures, but quite frankly, I just didn't have the energy to do it.) Prepare yourselves for a truck load of first day photos.

The kindergarten kid! He's so excited and ready for school. I'm sure he is just going to love it. And quite honestly, I'm not nearly as emotional about him going as I thought I would be. He's just been so bored at home, it's time, and I'm happy for him.


The 3rd grader! Can't tell she's excited can you? Oh Halle, she's such a crack up.


While Alyssa was getting her hair fixed, Jarom snapped this adorable picture. I just couldn't help but put it up here.

And finally the 5th grader! My word WHERE does the time go??


School, here we come, ready or not!

They look PERFECT! Magazine-worthy, with their fantastic fashion and backpacks.

I have a 2nd grader. I swear, it was just yesterday I was nursing & swaddling & snuggling with her. This morning she put on panda-shaped earrings, chic black sandals, a black shirt, and white Bermuda shorts...she looked at herself in the mirror and remarked, "I"m coordinated!" Oh, my...

Have I ever told you that you have the most adorable kids ever? That Carter is the cutest kindergartner ever! Gosh, didn't I just teach him in nursery? Things do go fast! And I must tell you after seeing Deanna's comment above mine, you are officially on my "not happy with" list! LOL! Just teasin', but I SOOOOOOO wish I could have gotten Lily into a preschool. Oh well, she'll have to deal with just me instead! Good luck with it though, I'm sure Kate will have lots of fun!

Love the pictures. I distinctly remember posing Katie in front of the school for first grade pictures, and here she is now, our sophomore in high school!

Sheesh. I agree with your -- where DOES the time go?

Trish said...

LOVE the pictures! Your kids are seriously adorable.

So does Kate go to preschool? is she LOVING having time alone at home w/ you to herself or does she spend the day missing everyone?
