First day of school



Today Noah started Kindergarten at the best school ever. We were so lucky to get him into the charter school we wanted and I know he's going to have a great time there. They do tons of activities and productions so there will be plenty of pictures posted in the coming year. Here is the first of the school year.



Jacob started preschool today and had a blast planting sunflowers and meeting new friends. He was so excited this morning that he was refusing to eat because he was so anxious to get to school. We finally convinced him there was time to eat before he needed to head to school.



And poor Benjamin (Pico) felt so left out as everyone one else went to school today. This is the first time he has been alone and it's going to be harder than I first anticipated. He insisted on having a first day of school picture taken of him as well. And last night when Daddy was giving Noah and Jacob father's blessings, he needed one as well and did a great job being reverent and listening to the blessing. I can't believe how grown up they are getting.

I can't believe it is already time to be going back to school again. That's so cute that Benjamin had to do it all too. It's nice that the boys were excited for school. YAY for getting into the school you wanted too!! I can't believe how fast they grow up, Allison is starting preschool next month too.

This summer has sure gone by fast. I can't believe it is time for school to start. It is so awesome that your kids are so excited to go to school, and that your son got into the school you wanted!

Such cute pictures! I wish we lived by each other Annika is wishing she was starting school as well. She does sit down and do her "homework" every afternoon with the girls, and I am hoping she absorbs some of what they are doing during that time.

Let's hear it for school! That is so wonderful that you were able to get your son into an awesome charter school -- having a good school makes all the difference. Poor Benjamin. At least he'll have a baby brother to keep him company soon!
