Back to School

Okay. So I'm a little bit late posting the first day of school pictures. I know this because yesterday I scheduled my appointments for parent-teacher conferences. Really?? Already?!

The kids seem, for the most part, to be enjoying school. From what I overhear, kindergarten is SOOOOO fun, eighth grade is stupid and a complete waste of time, third grade is awesome because "Brooke sits right behind me!" and sixth grade was scary at first but having a locker totally makes up for the confusion of seven different classes! As for me, I'm just trying to stay on schedule. Getting four out the door in the morning, only to then have the first one return home three hours later, followed by the others over the next three hours, requires no small amount of planning. Luckily, I have Claire to keep me on task.

Here is my new middle-schooler, Corinne. She's the first one to leave. It was barely light enough to even take this picture!
Nicole is also at a new school as she started Jr. High this year.
Paige is in third grade and a very good helper to her little brother.
Yay! Waiting for the first day of kindergarten was a LOOOOOOOOOOONG wait! Spencer loves school and is really excited to have FOUR other boys from the neighborhood in his class. (That poor teacher!)

First library book!!!

What terrific pics! I love how pictures like this capture memories that will truly last a lifetime. I don't know how you do it getting for school aged ones out the door- more power to you!

I love that you captured his very first library book. You look great reading to him. So sweet.

I went to my first Parent/teacher conference today. I can't believe we are at that point already either!

And I too am SWAMPED. My schedule is insane. I am a walking zombie tonight. Gah.

All the kids are darling. :)
