School Days School days...Happy Mom and Dad days!

The Day Has Come: School Has Begun!!
Even though the kids look like they are in a prison line up, they all were pretty excited to go to school today!

Here is Joseph looking for the bus....Riding the bus is what he looked foward to most!

. The long awaited school year is here!!! All FOUR kids in school together. What a sight! With Christian, Jacob and Luke at Joesph's side, I felt no anexity that my new little kindergarten won't find his way to his class. I cannot believe that Christian is starting his last year in Elmentary school. Joseph and Christian sat together in the front row on the bus the kindergarten and 5th grader...perfect. My Jacob and my Luke, had huge smiles as the bus drove away.

With the boys gone...what was a mom to do? Well I ENJOYED more than I should! I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY!!!! Miss J and I did our chores, did a little shopping and had lunch with Dad. The slient car ride was simply breathtaking, and no one complained that we went to five stores. What a day! And we get to do it all over again tomorrow?! Ah...life is good!

Day one...down...only hundred and eighty to go...

our favorite was the photo of the bus...it really brings back all kinds of memories of days gone by...early morning bus rides...
so glad to hear jacob really likes his teacher...
what's even more fun is seeing what great young men they are becoming!!! each one of them has so much drive and interest in the world around them. can you say strippling warriors of the modern day???

How exciting! It's comforting to know that the boys take care of each other... I can't even believe this is Christian's last year of elementary, and Joseph's first! I hope the kidergarteners all made it home with limbs intact :) I know all four are going to rock it out this year!!!

I love the sun coming off the bus. It's like something coming from a Kellogg's commercial or something! The pictures are so great! WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!!! Yee-haw!

I love these pictures! I can't believe your kids are growing up so fast!!! I hope the next few years before Brooklyn starts kindergarten go slowly... I love seeing updates about your family-- it definitely makes me feel closer to home!

Is Christian like in high school or something because he is ridiculously old looking!! What a hunk! I love seeing you in your kids... well I like seeing all my siblings in their kids, but it's just neat to see yours because I haven't gotten to know them very well, but they look like little yous and I love them all the same.
