school is in.

the first day of school...

desks
Just because of the way the morning went I was only able to get pics of Jonah and Tessa at their desks on the first day... getting 3 kids ready for school takes longer than just 2 kids... amazing revelation, I know.

Especially since the new kid getting ready is a girl who needs her hair fixed. She's really loving braids right now.

So here they are, SECOND morning before school (I packed lunches and snacks and laid out clothes the night before so I would have time for pics. And let me just mention that I LOVE uniforms, it's SO EASY!!!)


Tessa Grace, age 4 1/2, kindergarten...

tessa, age 4 1/2
Jonah, age 6, 1st grade...

jonah, age 6
Caleb, age 8, 3rd grade...

caleb, age 8
Amazingly, no tears were shed, by me or Tessa :)

She sat right down and got to work on her color sheet.

And she whispered to Ryan "Daddy, I get to have homework!" She's so excited to have homework.

tessa grace, age 4 1/2

Eden and I will be tackling laundry (I have a MOUND of clean clothes in my living room that is REFUSING to fold itself!) and then taking a walk, and enjoying our quiet time :)

I think that's my living room with the mountain of clean clothes you're talking about. Ugh!

They look so cute! I think uniforms would be really nice.

Oh, I just love these pictures :) Right now, I'm actually sitting in my kindergarten classroom waiting for the kids to come (Open House). I am so excited to finally mee them! And, I agree - uniforms are great!! The ones the kids wear at my school are very similar to the ones your little cuties have :)

What an exciting day for your kids! (especially Tessa!)

They are so cute!! And uniforms look so neat and scholarly- I think it sets the tone for school- I love uniforms. sigh.

I completely agree with the mound of laundry. I have my own polie of laundry, you are welcome to come to Indiana to fold mine :)
My husband keeps asking about the maid and where she is...lol. I told him she quit, not enough money for the job.

Is that glittery lipgloss on Tessa? ;) Love the pics! They all look like they enjoy school.

I love the first pic! Tessa looks like such a big girl with the boys.

Kristen said...

you took some amazing pictures of your kids! When does she turn 5? That is amazing she is probably one of the youngest starting kindergarten and no tears :) I always wished growing up that I had a uniform so I didn't have to think about what I was wearing, it would have been so much easier.
