First Day of School (2012)

The first day of school is upon us as are our traditional first day photos.
The Fifth Grader

Yes, today marked Jack's first day at the Middle School.  And, he had a fabulous day.  So thankful ... this is the first year that Samuel hasn't been at the same school as Jack, but he did great as well!
The Second Grader

Last night as I was looking forward to this morning it dawned on me that I likely wouldn't get my photo of the boys together this morning as Jack starts an hour ahead of Samuel.  And, many of you know that Samuel isn't one to get up early.  But, much to my surprise I ran in the house this morning after packing up the car and there he was, all dressed and everything. 
The Boys - September 4th, 2012

And, when it was time for Samuel to go to school, our little firecracker also wanted to be in a photo (oh girl, how long before you are protesting getting your photo taken with bed head and jammies on?! Too soon, I'm sure!).
And, yes, the boys, on their own, chose their first day outfits which included their Bringing Home Nora tees from our fundraiser.  Jack also took some family photos for inside of his locker, including one of Nora.  Love these boys!  They are rough and tumble, but they also have soft and compassionate hearts.

Here's to the start of a new year ahead, sure to be filled with adventure and growth!

Separate schools already wow. I love your first day pictures and oh, how they have each changed.

They made a great choice in wardrobe! And I those are cool blue shoes. I want a pair too.
