Back to school

This is for you mom! The first day of school 2013-2014. Wahoo! I have never been too excited for school start, but this year we were ready at our house. The children were craving more of a schedule and a routine and I am pretty excited that my family room is going to stay clean for at least 6 hours. It was pretty rough getting these "big kids" to crank out a smile. You can't tell by the pictures but they were so stinkin' excited for school.

Max - Age 10 - sixth grade.
Alexander. This kid even did his hair. Age 9. 4th grade. (Portland shirt!)
 Barrett Boy. Age 9. 4th grade. (Portland Shirt)
 Jacq. Age 7. 3rd grade.
 Gee - I sure love these four. 
 School was awesome for EVERYONE.
Sleeping beauty was loving the big kids gone.
  She had a special play date with cousins (Thanks Aunt Lyss) and mom all to herself. It was pretty awesome. At the end of the school day she did NOT want to pick up the big kids. She said, "I don't want the kids to come home." "The kids are happy where they are!" We talked about our future adventures and she got over it. Love a baby 5. They just roll with life.
more adventures coming... (hopefully)
