Back to School Bunch

Summer has been great and all, but these days everyone is really ready for school to start on Tuesday. (And by "everyone," of course, I mean "Mom.")

Preschool can't start soon enough for Luke...he's been climbing the walls for days.

And if the teacher needs help locating hidden chocolate chips, Luke will be a star student.


Sam's favorite subject will undoubtedly be snacktime...

...or dress-up.
(In this shot, Sam has been dressed by Emily who wishes she had a little sister. She calls him "Savannah." His father is thrilled.)


It's unfortunate that Auto Shop is not offered for 4th graders.

The highlight of Jake's week was taking apart our neighbors' broken vaccuum cleaner.



Just in the nick of time...Em lost a front tooth.

Which everyone knows guarantees her some serious social status the first day of 2nd grade.

Best of luck to all the back2schoolers!

Tune in next week for a photo of Mom turning cartwheels behind the school bus.

Another great blog post! I love it.

Bryce started back to school on the 11th! So early, huh? Grace will start preschool on Wednesday and she is very excited!!!

YAY!!! Life is good!! Too bad we don't live closer & we could hang at Target together!

So cute! Too bad they don't stay young forever, but then we always enjoy each "milestone"! I hope everyone has a great year!

Bridget said...

Wow. I love the shot of Luke scaling the fridge! That's great. Yes, I can not wait either for school to start. Two more days!!!

I love the climbing the walls pics. So cute.

I'm so excited for you. The whole back to school thing and all day school thing have really sent me over the edge. I'm a new woman!

What is it with boys and climbing?

I SWEAR I tell Jaxon to stop climbing at least a 100 times a day!

Makes for a good picture though... :)

Lindsey said...

Ahhh yes, bless the school, bless education, bless a quiet house... bless you! I hope you have a WONDERFULLY QUIET WEEK! :)

It's the most wonderful time of the year! My favorite holiday. Enjoy your down time.

Is that Jake's back-to-school outfit? You deserve a break Tuesday. My advice: never do any work when they're all gone at the same time. Savor the quiet!

Clair said...

This is an adorable post! Enjoy your up and coming quiet time.

Oh, how cute are they!? I love Em's tooth gap. Adorable. I had three brothers and used to dress the baby up in girl's clothes, too. He's married with kids now, so it all works out...

polly said...

have a wonderful holiday on that first day of school. you deserve it! I never was one of those mom's at the school bus weeping as the children left my side. I'm with you doing cartwills all the way home!

polly said...

I must have missed my first day of school when they taught me how to spell cartwheels. I wasn't spelling them, I was doing them!

Melissa-Mc said...

My oldest is a girl. She has 4 younger brothers and all of them at some time or another have been all dolled up in dresses and makeup.

Hope you all have a great school year.

Where's the pictures of you climbing the walls because your kids have been home all summer?

Now, THAT would have been impressive!

Cute gap Em!!

Marci said...

Enjoy!! I love the advice to "never do any work when they're all gone at the same time. Savor the quiet!" I am going to take that to heart!

Great photos, great post! (as always!!) :)

Robin said...

I am usually the one crawling the walls. Nice to see someone else doing it for a change.
