The Second Day of School Pictures

This week's big fun thing was the beginning of school! The second day ended up being the day the oldest wore her new dress, and the boy had a shirt he's hardly worn that exactly matched it. So of course, we made pictures in the twenty minutes between when they all woke up and when we ran out of the door. I'm notorious for being late. My husband calls it not giving myself margins; I call it being effective with my time. We did get out the door in good time today, and as I was driving the speed limit to the kids' school, the boy said, "Momma, why are you going so slowly when we're late?" I answered gleefully, "We're not late; we're early!" He said (seriously), "What is 'early'?" As if he needed a definition because he had never heard me use that word! Ha!
Notice the 2yo with her back pack. Everywhere the big kids' have gone with their backpacks, she has carried hers as well. She was quite disturbed today when we went to pick the big kids up and she had forgotten to bring her back pack!
Hooray for school!

  1. How sweet. I have two girls with a boy in the middle too - now 27, 25 (today!) and 22.5yo. Seems like only yesterday. Followed your link over from Fab Friday. Hope you'll drop by Giveaway Friday and leave a comment for our bedding giveaway.

  3. LOL! That is so funny! I love it when kids say cute and fun things to make us moms laugh, best when they aren't even trying!!
    How cute that your little one wants to be just like the big kids! I don't doubt someday my Z will be the same way when N goes off to school!!

  4. Cute! Did I tell you I got 2 speeding tickets within 4 months? Never had one in my life and then I get 2. Its all catching up with me. I'd would've liked to have told the cops, "I was just being efficient!" =)
