Back to School!! - 52 Weeks 12 of 52

The past two weeks have been a little.....crazy! Okay, I admit, they have been A LOT crazy! After tomorrow, the kids will have successfully completed the first two weeks of school.

Back to School Meet the Teacher night got the kids really excited for the new year....

Savannah and Ms. Carpenter.
I can't believe Savannah is in KINDERGARTEN!!

Kylie is excited to be our big 2nd grader....when did that happen?!?

Day One.....We're on our way!!!

Can't you just see the excitement?

Daddy and Savannah

Savannah and Mommy

Samantha is going to morning pre-school this year...that means for the first time in seven years Mommy will have 3 hours a day to herself....what ever will she do???

Let the fun begin!!


52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. Moms are typically the ones behind the camera, this is OUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family.

So, get yourself in the picture every week for 52 Weeks. Be in a picture with one or more or your children and post your "family photo" on your blog every Thursday - don't forget to list your post on MckLinky on Carin's blog

What an exciting few weeks! I love all your pictures and your story. May I suggest...there are pictures of you in there (You look so beautiful.) why don't you put up your button and link and make that your 52 week post???

One more thought...we all do it on Thursday but I don't see why you couldn't do it anytime from Thursday to Thursday as time could ask Carin if you thought it might be objectionable but why not make it work for you?

Just me again.

Kat - Great idea :) I took your advice!

Three whole hours! Three whole hours! I'm running that through my mind and thinking about how much life has changed for you with all of them in school! It's sad to see time fly so quickly, and exciting to see what God has for your future...

miss you!

How what fun! We just finished our 4th week of all of the 1st day pics! Such excitement!

Carin said...

Such a great post! I understand about it being BUSY. School is sure a great way to get things back into a routine. You have a very beautiful family, great pictures.

Good for you girl...multitask is the long known secret for surviving as a mom. LOL.
