First Day of School

The smell of pink erasers,  freshly sharpened pencils, glue, crayons, paper...I love back to school time.  That's before we even get to the fact I send children away for several hours at a time. My house stays clean and quiet.  Errands get done quickly or slowly, as I determine. :)

Ms. 4th Grade

Doesn't like being back in school.
Has her first man-teacher.
Brought home her first text book homework already. 

Mr. 2nd Grade

Loves his teacher.
Thinks his teacher is the best.
Wants to please his teacher.

Little Miss Kindergarten

Has the best teacher ever.
Loves that Mom got homework on the first day and she got cake.
Wasn't scared because "Mom, all my friends will be there." Insert dramatic eye-roll.  (Hers, not mine.)

Miss Mobile

Not just yet.
But she's trying.

My 4th grader is excited for school. We will see if she still is when it starts. I can't believe homework already! Your kids are adorable. Enjoy your peace and quiet!

Wahoo! I'm about ready. We start in a week and a half!

Sally said...

Wow! This brings a few tears to my eyes. They're just so big! I miss you guys. I want to live in Utah again. Boo hoo hoo!

Your kids are getting so big, and I seriously want to kidnap that little baby..but I will refrain from doing it! Happy new school year! I am counting down this last week. Here is to some quiet hours and a clean house for a few of those hours!
