Back to School

It just doesn't feel right to send these three boys back to school in the middle of August. I'm not ready for summer to be over! In all sincerity, I had so much fun playing with these boys all summer long and was sad to send them off on their first day of school. Goodbye to lazy summer days full of spontaneous adventures. Goodbye to coming and going as we please. Hello to structure, routine, and homework. Hello to carpooling, early bedtimes, and packed lunches. Ready or not, here we come, school!


Not a big fan of the daily reading requirement or the mandatory 8:30 bedtime, otherwise Hank is pretty excited about entering 3rd grade. Hank makes friends easily, is a quick-learner, and is hard working. If he can settle down and focus enough to listen to his teacher, Hank will have another great year.


More the size of a 2nd grader and already reading pretty well, Kindergarten is going to be a breeze for Max. Max is a very conscientious student and takes great care with his penmanship and art projects. So far he's enjoying recess and PE the most, but he also likes center time and singing.


This little stud is ready to kill it at preschool this year! Thanks to his tutor and our favorite app on the ipad, Ben knows all his ABCs! He knows his days of the week, his months of the year, a few shapes, and counts to 20, more or less. I'm so proud of this little preschool smarty-pants!

I already miss these boys while they're away at school, but I'm excited to see all the great things they learn this year.
