Scenes from the first day....

I can't believe summer vacation is over. In some ways I'm thrilled beyond words, in others I'm sad. But here we are, ready or not.

Welcome to the 2011-2012 school year.

Ian was very excited to start 2nd grade!

I think I was way more nervous for Isaac to start Middle School than he was. He wasn't very thrilled about his mom taking 1st day of school pictures either....but I snapped this one as he walked away. :)
Nicole starts her final year of High School- the look on her face says it all. She's a little stressed about all that is going on at the moment- but she's going to have a great year I'm sure!
This is the gift my children brought home to me from their first day. Piles and piles of papers waiting for my signature promising that yes, my child will be an angel in their class every day and will come TOTALLY prepared. Love it.
And this how Erik and I feel about having the kiddos back on a regular schedule and having a quiet house for a few hours a day.
Happy new school year to us all!
