Furst day of scool!

It should really be considered child abuse to be starting school this early in August but if the teachers are going to take 4 days off a month and Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Breaks then I guess you have to start 'em early. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to have paid time off on election day as well so they can get out and fulfill their NEA marching orders. Shocker - I just checked the school calendar and they just happen to have a "Professional Learning Day" scheduled for Nov. 4th. Yeah right. This is turning into an angry rant so I better stop.

This was REALLY the "First Day of School" for Madi as she starts kindergarten this year. It's kinda weird that she's grown up so much. She seems a little more innocent than Sam did when she started (Mom cried a little when she got on the bus). Madi is super excited to be going to school and is already loving it.

Sam is in 4th grade this year which is really weird. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that we were sending her off for the first time. She's going to be a teenager in no time which will be okay since she already acts like one. We were able to go over and meet both of their teachers and we're pretty happy so far. Sam hasn't had great luck the past couple of years so we're hoping this one holds up.

Starting school that early is so weird! I bet it is strange to see your little girls go off to school -- I don't know what I'll do when it's that time for ours. Ruby starts preschool next month and that is weird to me!
just got back from our annual trip to Lava -- missed you guys!

We should get Sam and Carlee together sometime... what's the deal with girls starting puberty at age 3? She's been a teenager for a looooong time already and she's only 10. We are sending our 3rd out the door to Kindergarden this year, too. Sad, sad. And we though August 20th was early. What our kids love is "Spud Harvest". For the 2% of students who actually help out with the harvest.

Yeah, I have to admit that when this all started I was a little naive. I figured they wouldn't start getting all emotional and crazy until maybe 9 or 10 years old. Turns out they are delivered that way and get progressively worse. Again, the inexpereience gained from growing up in a house full of boys.

They look so cute! They can stop growing up anytime.
