School days are here again ...

Today began our new school year, so of course, that meant some pictures before we left for school.  I normally take the pictures in front of our azeala but we have our beautiful black-eyed susans still in bloom, so I changed it up!

 Jack and Molly with "jackets on" picture

 Jack and Molly with "no jackets on" picture & a little posing going on

 Molly - 6 1/2 years old.  She looks so old to me - what a year can make!

 Jack - 8 1/2 years old.  Those eyebrows always get me - look at the triangle they make!

 So after school we were just hanging out in the front room talking about the day.  Jack still had his new shoes on and I was just smiling looking at those legs with those feet.  He is growing up so fast.  He is no longer the little boy - he is getting so very big.  By the way, those new shoes are a size 6!

These are the after school pictures that I was able to capture.

They both had a great day.  Molly snuggled up in my lap for awhile.  I think that the "full" day wore her out.  They are both sitting in front of the tv right now.  I figure that with no homework on the first day why not let them veg out because they won't be doing it in the days to come!  They are both excited about their teachers and their classmates.  Jack was excited because he gets computer everyday!  Molly was excited because she has TWO recesses!  I was excited to pick them up from school today!  I missed having Molly around.  I enjoyed my day without them, but it will take some getting used to having them be both gone for the full day.

So in summary ... it was a great day and we are all looking forward to the year that awaits us.
