First day of school

I can't believe the first day of school is already here.  We have had a lot of anxiety and some excitement leading up to today.  I think Isabel may have been the only one ready for today, she's in the 1st grade.  The rest of us wanted summer to last forever. 

Check out my girl. Isn't she beautiful. She is a Junior this year. She is amazing!

My big bad Freshman!  I can't believe he is in High School.  He has spent the week torturing me, trying to make me get sentimental and cry.  He keeps reminding me That he is only four years from graduation and less than 5 years away from leaving on a mission. 

My baby boy is in middle school.  I'm not sure who was more nervous for him to go to the big school, him or mommy.  He is such a sweet boy.

My baby girl is in 1st grade.  She is so excited to have her own desk.  Open house was last night and she told me about 10 times how much she likes her desk.  Then this morning I heard all about it again.  She says she was sick of just sitting at tables.  A desk means she is a big kid now. 

Here they all are together.

Check out how much Zachary has grown this summer...

Here is a Picture of Alexa and Zachary in April 2011

Here is a picture of them in August 2011.

I love this picture, the look on Alexa's face is great.  I just wish I knew how to make the sun reflection on the window go away.

Not to be undone, here are some cute pictures of CJ and Isabel together.  Dang I got cute kids.

Now there off to school and my house, is really, really, quiet.

Maybe I'll go quilt!  :)

I cannot believe how big they have gotten. Oh my how time flies! Seems like yesterday they were little. Of course I keep saying that about my kids too. I can't believe that I only have two left at home and they are in 10th & 8th grade this year.
