First Day of School... Check!



















We all survived the first day of school. Some of us had butterflies (like me!). Ella started Kindergarten, Cora went to 2nd grade, Peter went to 5th grade & Austen went off to the Junior/Senior High school for 7th grade.

Everyone made the transition really smoothly. We had a fairly relaxed morning. It was probably as relaxed as we could be on any given morning. Ella had a 1/2 day from 8-11:30 and Austen had a 1/2 day from 11:30 'til 2:30. Luckily, I've learned how to be in two places at (almost) the same time so it all worked out.

The best part of the day for me was collecting everyone back up and hearing all of the chatter about who, what, when & for how long! Wishing you all a great start to the school year~

And please tell me your kiddos don't have to walk up that hill every day!!

They all looked so bright-eyed and happy! I hope they will have a wonderful year!

My oldest would be entering 7th if he were going to school. What a fascinating time, heading into teen-hood.

Thanks Jennie! I love the new background, too! Thanks to pajamamama.

I guess I've gotten used to the uber steep driveway! LOL Sometimes I do drive down to pick them up even though I know it's so lazy of me!

It makes for great skiing/skidding in the winter!

First days are exciting and nerve racking at the same time. Wow- that is quite an uphill trek for the wee tots.

Did you survive the long day without them all?
