First Day of School 2011

My "baby" getting ready to start Senior Kindergarten!

Timothy wanted to decorate his Grade 2 sign.
Stephen, looking so grown up as a Grade 3 student!

I'm not exactly sure what Timothy is doing with his eyes, but this was the best shot of him outside ready to head for the bus stop.
I know I'm way behind in posting the first day of school pictures, but hey, it's ONLY November 7!  I can't believe how grown up these boys are this year.  I remember asking Mom one time what age she enjoyed the most while we were growing up and she told me that she enjoyed them all because each one brought new joys.  I didn't quite understand that at the time because Stephen was only a baby when I asked that, but now I get it.  I'm LOVING having a third grader who comes home with the most fascinating facts that he learned that day (plus, third grade was always my favorite to teach, so I'm a bit partial here).  I love having a second grader who is so very into writing stories, so much so that I feel like I'm an audible dictionary at times, spelling every other word for him.  And I so love having a kindergarten student who is old enough to enjoy going to school, but who is also young enough to be home every other day with me!  We're off to a good start here in 2011, and I know it will only get better!
