First Day of School

Well the day has finally came to head back to school. I have to say that I have bitter sweet feeling about today. I am so ready for the routine things to start again or should I say at least try to get into a routine. Life is crazy! I will miss summer it went way to fast. I love watching the boys play and staying up late and just enjoying the warm weather, but getting back to the normal life of bedtimes, dinner at a regular time and just feeling some what organized will be great. The boys were so excited for school to start to day a little nervous, but the did great. Austen will be in the 5th grade and Tanner in the 4th. I know it seems like yesterday that they weren't even old enough to go to school and now they will be in Junior High before I know it that is scary. Also today after we got the boys off to school Jake and I head out to do some things and meet my sisters and mom for some yummy lunch and a little shopping after the shopping Jake and I headed off to the doctors for his 15 month check-up and yes, the dreaded shots. He was a little upset, but over all he did pretty well. I just want to tell me 3 boys how much I love them and how proud I am of them. Just a little side note Jake was a little at sad to take any pictures of his shots. I will have to post the later.

Mandie.... seeing your boys actually brought tears to my eyes. They are getting so big and so handsome. Man I bet you are going to be a nervous mom in a couple of years trying to keep all the girls away! MAN... the just took me way back!


Mandie, your boys are so handsome. The first day of school is always so exciting, new clothes, new teachers, new girlfriends!! I have to admit I miss all the hub-bub of those days!
Enjoy it while it's happening!

The Russells

What handsome young men...I particularly like Tanner's smile and Austen looks too cool for school!! You're a great mom!! By the way I liked your hair!! It turned out cute and Jake was a sweetheart to watch, I had to lock Abby up, he doesn't like her very much!! I also found one of his million pluggies in my car under the seat!!


I can't believe your boys are that old..I remember when they were so little! What good looking boys! Yea for school and schedules back! I'm with you...I'm sad to see summer go, but it will be nice to get back into a routine! Love seeing your cute family!!
