First Day of School

School started on Tuesday. I don't really look forward to new school years. I like my kids hanging around and having lazy mornings. :) But, start it did, and here are the requisite pictures:
Caleb is an eighth grader now, has decided to play football this year (along with soccer), is now much bigger than me, and still gets annoyed that I want to take his photo on the first day of school. I did say I would be happy to walk him to school too but he declined. :)

Calvin is now in fourth grade, and also is now getting tired of the traditional first day of school photo. This year our neighbor up the street is in his class, which is pretty nice.

Connor had his very first first day of school! He is now going to senior kindergarten, in the mornings. What the photo doesn't show is how excited he was to go, and he made a friend the very first day and had a playdate planned with said friend 2 days later! There are only 10 kids in his class, which I think is great.

Now I have the mornings to myself for the first time in a long time. It's kinda weird, but I'll surely find lots to keep me occupied, like the quilt that has to be done next weekend. It's been all cut out and ten of the sixteen rows are already together.

The boys look fantastic! My kids are tired of pics...period! I hate that I'm so far away because for the first time in 6 yrs, I'll have mornings to myself as well! WAH!!

Oh my gosh, Linda, your boys are so grown up! How did that happen?

I've always hated the start of school. After all, if I didn't like my kids, why did I have more? That's one reason I'm homeschooling my youngest 2: I can keep and enjoy them longer. I have an 8th grader, too!
