Back To School 2015

Happy Wednesday Ladies!
 
Hard to believe summer is over and the kids are back in school.  I really feel like this summer flew by.  The kids were gone for almost a month so I feel like I didn't really have a summer with them!
 
My kids have been carefree this summer...staying up super late and sleeping even later!  I knew trying to break them in a week before school started was not going to work, so we just started cold turkey Monday morning!  I knew they would be a bit excited, so everyone woke up just fine Monday morning...Olivia was up at 5:30....that never happens!  On Tuesday, it was a struggle to drag her out of bed at 7:30!
 
Lunchboxes were all laid out ready to be packed....I hate packing lunchboxes!  If you are looking for some great lunch box packing tips, head over and see how my friend Shelly keeps packing lunches easy and organized!
 

This girl!!!  Mornings are always interesting with her!
 

Hard to believe she is starting 2nd grade...the time has flown by so quickly!
 

AJ is going to OWN middle school...there is no doubt in my mind about that!
 

And my sweet Jack....I mean his last year of middle school...not even sure how that happened!
 

These 3 are the BEST! 
 

This is the first year Olivia will be at school without AJ....he walked her into her class every day for the past two years...she is going to miss having him there so much.  Before I left to drop off Olivia, AJ gave her a big hug and told her she was a big girl and was going to be fine without him.  He really is a super sweet boy.  She is so lucky to have big brothers who love her so much!
 


And there goes my heart.....walking into school all by herself!
 

She came home all smiles....and had a GREAT day!
 
I loved seeing everyone's back to school pictures!  So fun!  Thanks for stopping by today!!!

  5. Why is your 2nd grader walking in alone? At first I thought maybe the school wouldn't allow it, then looking at your picture, it's clear other parents are walking in. She seems young not to have a parent on the 1st day of school.

    1. Hello anonymous...she is walking into school alone because they prefer the parents not walking in. Usually kindergarteners and children who are new to the school will have a parent walk them into class. However this is her 3rd year at the school and her and her friends meet up at the front door and walk in together. But thanks for the concern!!!!

    2. And let me add a few days before we attended her open house, met her teacher and set up her desk. Morning drop offs are crazy at school and I know , for a fact, the staff prefers that the school is not flooded with parents.
