First Day of School 2015-2016

First Day of School 2015-2016

Well, first day of school drop off is always a little anticlimactic. Noah & Carter are in the same spot as always since the middle school and high school are right next to each other. Ivy will get out at the same place as Gray now. I parked the car and followed them to their classes (despite Ivy's suggestion that I just not.) I left feeling happy they are settled and also a little bit that's it? 

I got my iced coffee at the drive up and came home to SILENCE. 

The day went by so fast. I decided to stay close to home since it was the first day and all, and you just never know. Before I knew it, it was time to pick them up and now I have a stack of papers to read and sign and everyone is raiding the kitchen. I'm not going to lie, a moment ago I took possibly my first deep breath of the day and felt a great peace. I love having them back home. And I think we're going to have a great year, or a great however long we're here. 

Look at all those happy smiles and new shoes! (l-r) First day of HIGH SCHOOL, fourth, first, & eighth grade! Gray brought an apple for his teacher. Ivy kind of didn't want me to follow her into her class but kindly obliged. Can't wait to hear how it goes!
High school! 4th grade! 1st grade! 8th grade! 

(day ninety one!)


  1. Yay for school!!! Our babies are getting SO big!!!

  2. Oh my heart, when I saw the first pic....I can remember being in your bedroom the morning Ivy was born and can't believe she is already in first grade. Enjoy your Silence cause you really deserve it!


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
