First to head back are these two high schoolers! Aren't they the cutest?? I can't believe how tall Caleb has gotten in the last few months! He's 6 feet, and still growing fast!
Favorite Caleb quote from the first day. Becca asked if he saw any cute girls there. "Ya, there were lots of cute girls, but most of them weren't wearing any pants!" It's his first year in a public school without uniforms. I think it was a bit of a rude awakening.
Two long weeks later, these guys finally started back to school.
Josh in 8th grade, Jonah in 5th, Simon in 1st.
They didn't know it, but they were REALLY READY for summer to be over. These last couple of weeks have been mostly TV, video games, or fighting and teasing. The silence in the house today is soothing to my soul!
And finally... two LONG hours after we dropped the big boys off, Eli had his first day of "boy school." It's really just a rotating play group, but he loves to tell everyone that he gets to go to school. He wanted to pack a backpack and a lunch, like the big kids. These are his friends Clayton and Calvin.
Sweet little Eli- he had been talking about boy school for DAYS, he was so excited! Then this morning about an hour before it was time, he knocked on the bathroom door.
"Mom, if I go to boy school, you will be so lonely at this house by yourself!" And after a pause, "Maybe I don't want to go to boy school."
Bless his little heart! He was willing to give up something he wanted so badly so that his mom wouldn't be lonely at home! Melted my heart. Luckily it didn't take much to convince him that it was ok to go... Mommy will be just fine.
