This week was the first week back to school. In any other year in the past, this was a happy day for me. By the end of summer you really need a brake from having kids around nonstop. But, that wasn’t the case this year. I had a great summer with the kids and I enjoyed having them around. Its sad for me to have to send them away for most of the day again. Especially now that this leaves poor Miss Kayla home with no buddies too. Dad was in Leadville with our camera for the first day of school so I only got some bad iPhone pics. But here is Sydney on her first day of Third Grade.
The next week Dad and camera were home so we posed for our annual school shots in the front yard. One point of excitement was that Kayla would be included in the photos this year. Her sisters were so proud of her!
Backpack of choice this year was blue with frogs and flowers. We are SO beyond Dora or other cartoon characters now. We need to be cool. Just look at how big my girl is getting. And quite beautiful too if I do say so myself.
