Back to School

And another summer comes to an end. We had a great time enjoying a new baby, seeing family, camping, playing outside, making snow cones and vacationing. Dylan said he wasn't ready for school to start as summer ended, but now that he is knee deep back in school he is so excited to be there and glad it is back in session. He loves his new teacher, Mrs. Taylor, and thinks she is the best 2nd grade teacher around. Lincoln also started school last week, but at home with me and he's not quite sure why he doesn't get to go with his big brother on the bus, or sit in a classroom. All in good time my son! 

The first three pictures are from the welcome back night, the day before school actually began. Dylan got to see his classroom, bring his back pack, set up his desk how he wanted it, and meet his teacher. Lincoln also decided that he would bring his back pack and we almost as excited as Dylan was. I'm not sure how to break it to him...

They both wanted to wear nice shirts.

 And finally the first day of school. The boys were up early, I mean Dylan was ready to go by 6:45am. Dylan had packed his lunch the night before (and I snuck in a little joke and note because I'm a big sappy) and we had decided what the boys wanted for breakfast the day before too. Toaster waffles and cantaloupe. Shane had to work early that day so I was on my own getting everyone up, fed and there on time. Luckily everything worked out and we got plenty of pictures too. Thankfully Dylan likes to ride the bus and the stop is right in front of our house so it is quite convenient with the other little ones. 
Yay for school! The boys colored their own sheets, notice Linc's is upside down :)

Poor Mommy, leaving a kid on the first day is still a little hard. I took a picture of his classroom window from the outside. Luckily I have two other ones at home to keep me busy.

  1. I'm not just being biased here but your kids are adorable and you are a great writer. I think you should work on a book with ideas on motherhood, keeping kids entertained and educated, food prep, money saving tips...you are so clever and funny.
