the wheels on the bus

Nervous stomachs, new shoes, empty backpacks, excitement, tears..........yes, it's the first day of school.  This year I sent a 2nd and 4th grader off to school and it is vastly different than a couple of years ago.  As usual, I took pictures of the whole crew.  (The picture on the left is from 2 years ago when G and N were in Kindergarten and 2nd grade, the picture on the right is this year.)  They stand there and tolerate me until I have the shot I want and then they are off to chat with friends, destroy ant piles, and race up and down the sidewalk to see who's the faster runner that day.

This year I didn't even get to stay until the bus arrived because I had PTO duties at school that required an early arrival on my part.  I said my good-byes, kissed foreheads and headed off. They didn't even notice.  

They are growing up and I couldn't be more proud of those boys.  Look out world, here they come!

  1. Aww, they are growing up. Makes me teary eyed to look at old pictures and really see how much they have grown! Where has the time gone?
