First Day of School
After we returned home from vacation, we had less than two weeks until the start of school.  We crammed in a few more trips to the pool, playdates with friends, and a movie in that small amount of time, and Andrew and Emily got to visit Fall Creek Falls State Park with Grammy and Papa as well (I wish I could have gone with them, but I was working our school's supply sale).

Too quickly, the first day arrived.  Before heading to school, we stopped for the annual photo with our beloved neighbors.  Unfortunately, the kids keep growing, and we've lost two girls to middle school.  They left for school an hour earlier, so they weren't around for our photo. 


To give you a comparison, this is the first shot taken four years ago!


Emily is very excited about her second grade teacher.  Mrs. R was Andrew's teacher three years ago, so we already know how wonderful she is.


Andrew is now at top of the elementary school food chain.  He has a very sweet fifth grade teacher, and I think his final year will be a great one. This will be my last year taking his picture with his teacher on the first day.  I promised him I won't walk into middle school with him. :)


The first day of school was a half-day, so we spent the afternoon at Nashville Shores (a water park) pretending it was still summer.  It was fun for all!

Several weeks later, we are fully into the swing of things at school.  It is still hot outside, but summer break is a distant memory!
