School Daze






I simply cannot believe how abruptly the summer ended. It's 8:30 a.m. and for the last 2 months, I was usually just getting up to find cereal bowls scattered around...today, I have showered, dressed, taken photos, served a nutritious breakfast, straightened Mattie's hair, taken a 1/2 mile walk, read my blogs and email, cleaned up a mess from the dog, washed a load of laundry and cleaned ink off Charleigh's baby doll's face...Now what am I gonna do????

Here are the stars of the show with my usual bad placement requiring the little darlings to squint into the sun....

wow...its still the middle of summer and so many kids are back in school today. i thought i heard a motherly collective sigh of relief in the distance. =)

so getting everything done by 9 am is what i'm missing eh.

No Heidi.... getting everything done by 9 am on the first day is what your missing. All the other days you run behind, and catch yourself going and coming.

I miss you, H.

Too bad. I was just about ready to send them all to kindergarten this year. Maybe then I could get something done around here.

oh so cute! Your kids sure have grown this year. They are absoltuely adorable! I love the first day of school pictures. I always take them of my high schoolers too, they know its corny, but they still pose for me! We still have two more weeks of freedom, then the rat-race begins!
