And They're Off!

It's official - SUMMER BREAK is OVER!
Today is the FIRST day of SCHOOL for my kiddos!
They were so excited last night! I remember how that was when I was a kid, could NOT get to sleep from being so excited & nervous at the same time! Each one received a father's blessing from Ben, so they will have a great school year. They love that!
I made their lunches last night & the kids had their new clothes all laid out & backpacks full of school supplies. I suddenly noticed we didn't have anymore cereal for breakfast, so I whipped up some strawberry muffins (ok they were from a mix) and they were GOOD!!
Their backpacks are so full of supplies & lunches! Just look at their HUGE smiles!
Even Anson has school supplies (even though he's not going to school) in his backpack.
They rode their bikes while Ben and I jogged with them (Anson was in the stroller holding his backpack). I had to carry Ashley's backpack for her because it was too heavy (who knew school supplies could weigh her down so much). ha ha
We got to school with time to walk each munchkin to class. They even gave us hugs in front of everyone. They're so SWEET!!!
Now we're off to the gym (we already had our warm up jogging to school & walking home). Whew! It's already HOT outside!
I'm happy for the kids to be back with all their friends, but a little sad that our house is almost empty. But not too sad that I won't enjoy the quiet a little bit. LOL
Hope the kids have a great first day!

Awesome back to school pics of the kids. Mine start back in two weeks, my last little guy starting this year. For the first time in 25 years, I won't have a kid at home. I won't know how to act LOL!!

Wow! Your kids are back in school. Where do you live? Ours don't go back until the Tuesday after Labor Day (first Monday in September).
