For selfish reasons, I am so sad that summer is over and now ALL my kids are into the big world of SCHOOL. I was blessed to be able to take half the summer off to be with the kids, and I'm not sure where all that time went. It flew by! While we did what we set out to do: ENJOY SUMMER TOGETHER, there's still a few items left on our bucket lists! I guess they'll wait until next year! While I'm sad that summer vacation has come to an end, I am beyond excited to see where this school year takes them!!!! The time with them has certainly motivated me to work even harder for our goals!
Here's to a GREAT school year for them!!! <3
We'll start with Monkey...
he's now in Kindergarten!!!
Don't ask me how because i have no idea. It blows my mind if I think too long about it. I swear it was just yesterday that we found out we were expecting him. So I have no clue how he's already starting school!
Oh, but is he ready! He's so smart and polite and has crazy energy. He's going to give his amazing teacher a run for her money but at the same time give her a sense of calm and peace because he'll be there to help her when she needs it.
He's good like that. Always wanting to help. Always wanting to learn. Always there to cuddle and love up on. My baby. He's in big boy school now!!!
Then our Buddy!
He is the big man on campus this year!
He is beyond excited though! He's anxious to learn and have fun and wants to be challenged this year so he's ready for MIDDLE SCHOOL next year! SO proud of who he is growing up to be. He's a great person and has a huge heart! I can't wait to see how this year goes for him :)
And our Princess <3
Can you believe her beauty?! She just got her FIRST "real" haircut yesterday - and she hates it - but doesn't it look so cute?!!! I LOVE IT! Which makes sense - cause at 7, her and I already are opposites. If i like it, she hates it. If i hate it, she loves it! This girl!!! ;)
All summer long she complained about school getting closer and closer, but the closer it got, the more excited she became! :) And her 1st day of 2nd grade turned out great! :) She sure is growing up way too fast - i think the haircut helps - and that laugh of hers goes on for miles. It's so contagious! I wish I could hear her laugh all day long while she's at school with her friends! She's our crazy girl, but we wouldn't have it any other way <3
Here's a few more pics from before the bus came:
|Em wanted in our 1st day pics, too ;) It was her 1st, 1st day experience afterall!|
|My babies & I <3|
|These 4 are my heart!!!|
|Yea, we have a big bus stop! So what?! ;)|
|Oh gosh...there they go!!!|
|There goes my baby!!! <3|
All smiles getting off the bus!
At least, if they knew I was taking pics, they would have been smiling ;)
And some randoms :)
Have a GREAT 2016 - 2017 school year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
