1st Day of School for 5 of the 6

So today we had our first day of school except kindergartners start next week--they do assessment testing over the next week with the students. I think Emily & Micah were the only two genuinely excited about going back. They also have more friends who live out of the neighborhood than the others. Everyone came back pretty upbeat despite looking less than thrilled. Timo has an AP class he is dreading but he can do it! Taran has 2 AP classes and Spanish 4 which will be his hardest classes. I was dreading school but have faced the music that summer can't last forever and there is a time to play and time to work. Soccer starts this Saturday so I'll have to post a photo of our 6 soccer players!

Hope they have a great day!

I think my girls are with Isak!

Not that it matters to much. I'm thinking they are at the age where boys and girls ignore each other if someone else is looking.??

Your summer trip looked fun!

It's always nice to get them home and get the report of the first day....we were good 2 for 3.....Riley on the other hand, didn't love her school day all that much! Hopefully today will go better after a late night pep talk!

I laughed at the teenager enduring-the-traditional-1st-day-of-school-photo look from Taran and Timo. Janna's photo has the exact same look! My parents never thought to take photos of the first days and when I saw some of my friends and cousins had a photo for each year I thought, "What a great idea! I'm going to do that with my kids!" I am sure the kids will be glad someday (and they will wish they hadn't made a stupid face in their older years, but smiled instead!) Hope they all have a great year!
