First Day of School

I do NOT like it when summer ends. I LOVE having my kids home with me all day, everyday! We tried not to go too many places this summer so that we could just spend time at home as a family. The summer still seemed to go by so fast. There are a few good things about school starting again. My house stays cleaner and everyone is back on a routine. During the summer it seems like I clean constantly and the house is still a mess. We also seem to eat meals and go to bed at all kinds of strange times. Well it was a fun and memorable summer and I'm so sad to see it end!My four super cute cuties! Brookie, Kaylee Nicole, Braden and Jessie.
Brookie is in 3rd grade this year and has team teachers, Mrs. Huff and Mrs. Sullivan. She was not excited for school to start. She just wanted it to stay summer!
Brookie's backpack. WOW! This backpack has a story! Brookie LOVES to go shopping and loves to try EVERYTHING on. She had the hardest time picking out a backpack this year. She knew she wanted an aqua backpack and did not want one that had only one strap. We looked at about 100 backpacks in about 5 different stores. Finally, the night before school we were in Ross and I told her she had to choose one here or she wouldn't have a backpack for school because I wasn't going to anymore stores. We walked in the store and Brooke went to the backpack and wahla there was an aqua backpack with two straps!
Jessie is going to be in 1st grade this year and her teacher is Ms. Stiner. She is really excited to be going to school with Brookie and being able to ride the bus. When I was fixing her hair she said that she wishes that she was still going to Capital Christian. I asked her why and she said she still wanted Mrs. Litz to be her teacher. After I told her that if she were still at Capital Christian she wouldn't have Mrs. Litz again and she wouldn't get to ride the bus and she decided Pinion Hills was going to be OK.
Jessie's backpack. Jessie does NOT like to shop. She is like her Papa Telford. She went into the very first store and said. I want that purple one with the fuzzy peace sign. I asked her if she was sure or wanted to try it on or anything and she said, "Nope, that's the one I want. Can we go now?"
Braden's muscles!Braden's backpack. I'm not sure what he had packed in there but it was full of something!
Little Kaylee Nicole. I don't know what she is giong to do all day without her Brookie! She prefers Brookie to everyone, even me!
(That is a sticker by her eye...Brookie had one on too. I just wanted to mention that so noone asked what was wrong with her eye!)

Breakfast on the first day of school. Brent is awesome. He gets up and makes a homemade breakfast every morning before school. It's a great routine. Brent does breakfast and I do hair!
