First day of school, boys were up and ready early!
Came out while I was still enjoying a cup of coffee, usually I have that done and wake them up!
They had their clothes (not outfits DH tells me b/c they are boys) ready the night before.
It was darkish and very rainy for our first day.
My 4th grader was ready, this might be a painful grimace, but it passes for a smile,
so win for mama!
Too busy for the backpack shot.
And my second grader is always more willing for the pics
Nope I was not allowed to walk them in. Remember, mom, you saw my room at meet the teacher and I still know how to get there... Honestly, I am proud of their independence. So I headed to work. Blessed this year with a trial run on a schedule that allowed me to pick them up, too, on their first day.
And, again, keeping it real at the Grabers means showing you this, my 1st attempt at a morning picture. It goes like this MOST of the time.
Running up the driveway is so very common, this is afterschool
And then shooting some baskets. I missed Joe and DH playing catch because I was pulling weeds.
