First Day of School

I am a couple of weeks late but I finally have a way to post pictures now so most of my posts are going to be late posts until I get caught up! I don't have too many good shots and these are from my very crappy camera sooooooo deal with it!

We spent the day before getting everything ready and sharpening Big Brother's pencils!

The next morning both kids were bright eye'd and bushy tailed and ready to go!

My handsome 7th grader! BTW, I need to brag on him. Other than the day he was "sick", he's been VERY GOOD at getting up on time and getting himself fed and clothed and out the door on time. I have to take Lilah to school before he gets on the bus so he's left alone for about 30 minutes in the AM and he's done a super job so far and hasn't given me a bit of trouble!!

Thanks to my friend, I was able to download a cute little backpack tag for Lilah for FREEEEE!!!

Here they are excited to start a brand new school year!

Lilah's done really well too so far. There have been a few mornings where she's said she doesn't want to go to school and even twice has cried about it but she seems to love it once she's there! I think that's pretty good seeing how she's been my shadow for the past 4 years and the school day is from 8:30-3:00 and that's a long day for a little girlie!

Love. it! :D I love back-to-school pictures, period. It's just such happiness in a photo! (Minimum for the mommy, bonus if the kids are happy, too!)
