Back to School!!!

Well, they are back in school now. Bug and Lexlee headed back this morning, and Jibbity starts Kindergarten next Tuesday!! Seems like it has been a fast summer.
Here are their "mugshots"!! I have to torture them every year, and make them hold "the sign". HAHAHA



O.k. I gave them a break, and let them drop the signs. No fancy schmancy hair for Lexlee this year, just straight with the ends curled. Still beautiful though. She is growing up!!

Bug making fun of me for taking pictures, he's a pretty good sport though!

I miss them!!!
I love you two, stop growing up...will ya?

I love the idea of making them hold signs with all the info on them.
My oldest starts kindergarten on Friday and I'm more nervous than he is!

OMG! LOVE THE SIGN IDEA! I torcher mine each year with taking pics on the 1st day of school, but never thought about doing the sign! GOOD IDEA! I even told my 15 year old (who will be a freshman in high school this year)that i want to walk him to him class and take a pic of him with his 1st hour teacher. That was a big fat NO!

I always get pics on the first day, but never with a sign...great Idea....consider it stolen!!

Is it bad that I am counting down the days til they are back in school?? :))

Gorgeous kids! They look like they got older over the summer! That's just not right. ; )

Hahaha, the sign! I love it! I can't even imagine the day my oldest goes to school (she turned 3 yesterday). I'm totally going to cry, I just know it.

Cute kids! Great idea to hold the signs, whether they like it or not! Where did the summer go?

Oh, so sweet!!!! :) I love that he's holding his football. On a side note, I like your front stoop area...very cute! :)

Now that's a good idea!!

I love this idea and will use it when my little one starts school for sure.

What a great idea to make them (um, have them) hold signs. I'm going to steal that when Bug goes to school (if I remember...)

Krissy said...

What a great idea! Love that he's with the football!
Hope their first day's of school went well! The summer sure has slipped by!

Emily said...

Clever. I sure hope I have that great of a morning. I love your idea so much, I might swipe it.

Hope they had a great time.

I'm with Becca, love the sign idea! We have 7 more days of summer and as of today I'm officially ready. Perfect timing!

No uniforms huh? Our kids have uniforms until 6th grade, it so removes the morning "what should I wear" stress!

Summer flew by, that's for sure. I'm not sure I have anything to show for it, DARN IT!

CUTE-CUTE kids!

I hope you don't mind if we all copy your idea to make signs. :-) I take those photos and know why I took them, but no one else knows why!

Your children are beautiful.
