First Day of School

Here are my three little munchkins. I can't believe I have three children in school. I'm starting to get looks at back to school night.


Sam is starting second grade. He's recently lost some teeth, which gives him that cute jack-o-lantern look.


Our big kindergartener, Bethany.


Bekah, who is too, too cool for fourth grade. Okay, so she really does like school. She'll be 10 in a couple of months. YIKES! When did that happen?


Waiting for the bus. Bethany told me after school that riding the bus was her favorite part of school! Whatever happened to recess?

Here it comes!

And, off they go. Now what do I do with myself?

Oh, yeah - I have this little gal to play with!

May you all enjoy your first day of school, too! And I wish I could send you all a fresh bouquet of sharpened pencils (name that movie).

Wow! I can't believe you've got 3 in school either. :) They all look adorable!

I cannot even TELL you how much I love these pictures. All your kids look especially beautiful, and the pic of Sarah at the end made me laugh out loud.

Oh! And I forgot--it's You've Got Mail, of course! :)

So what's up with the jackets? Is it actually cold there!? I guess that's what starting school is all about. We were still in shorts and sandals on the first day!...we are STILL in shorts and sandals.. I have three in school too. I have three hours to myself everyday! I'll only have that for 5 more weeks though...I'm glad I have a playmate on the way. :-)

Mary, thanks for the pictures. I love the first day of school every year. I think that even when I am 88 years old (if I live that long) that I will still love the first day of school.Your kids really do look so entirely adorable.
Love, Grammy

p.s. How cool is it that they have paved your road!

You've got mail...do I get a prize or anything?

I am just entering the kids in school zone - I love it!! ITs so exciting reliving school over and over again - I LOVED LOVED LOVED school...well the first day anyway.

I sent Brooke to school with a bouquet of UNSHARPNED pencils - I think I was the uncoolest parent of the class.

You do such a great job with photography. Miss you here in Utah, although I haven't been at choir myself, as I am huge, huge, huge with #2. My goal is to just keep Chet occupied while I try to rest, but that doesn't work out so well. Your kids look super happy and oh so cute!
