First Day of School

We had a great day yesterday, as I am sure a lot of you did. We did the whole first day of school business. The boys were pretty excited to start first grade and to tell you the truth, so was I.


(Trying to get my boys to smile real smiles proved very difficult-actually impossible.)

Oakley went to Kindergarten orientation. I think she will love it. And I never have a problem getting her to smile for the camera.

At the end of the school day I went and walked with the boys. On the way home our group walked right into a swam of hornets. Andrew (among 3 other kids) was unlucky enough to be stung. Not a good way to end your first day. We did ask the boys what their favorite thing about school was and, of course, it was recess. They were so excited that they will be having 3 recesses now instead of one. I remember that being my favorite "subject" as well.

Here is to a great school year!

Sorry the kids have to go to school during hot August--we always started after Labor Day.
How long is kindergarten now?
Cute Oakley--will you enjoy being home with just 2 girls?

Yesterday was a little taste of heaven. Paige and Morgan milling around doing their own thing, no big kids to tease them. Chances for messes or destruction down from 6 to 2...soo nice! This is going to be the best winter ever.

Cute! I love your backdrop for your photos. Lovely. I love the bit about recess. Kids are all the same when it comes to a love of recess. Ring the bell! Have some fun!
