Back 2 School

Chris 11th Grade

Matt 11th Grade


Johnny 8th Grade


Jeffrey 5th Grade


Tanner 1st Grade


There is just something wonderful about the first day of school, the smell of the brand new CRAYOLA crayons, brand new {un~sticky} glue sticks, freshly sharpened pencils, new pens you have to scribble to get the ink flowing, unmarred pencil boxes, unbent folders...

AND NEW backpacks!

Your boys are so handsome! My oldest is a 5th grader too! Then I have a 3rd grader, 2nd grader, and my preschooler. I love school starting, but we don't start till September.

Hi Jen,
Wow five boys! What cuties! My mother-in-law has five boys too. I have one teenage girl and I think I have my hands full. LOL. I agree with you about the first day of school. Tell your boys I pray for a great school year for them. Have a wonderful day.

Blessings,
~Ana♥

WOW I can't believe they have already started school. Those first few days of school each year and so much fun. Our area starts back on Aug. 19th. My daughter will be going into 5th grade and is sooooo excited because they change classes this year.

Wow! I know the feeling. My son will be 15 on Monday, and my little girl just turned 5. It goes so fast doesn't it? They are all very handsome and look ready to go back to school. My kids don't start until September.

If you get a chance come visit my Blog and say hi!

Have a great day,

The youngest of our four sons turned 21 this month, and yet I still keep feeling like I should nab up some of those school supplies that are on sale .... habits die hard!!
This past spring while at my bi-yearly asthma specialist appoint., the nurse wanted to make my fall apoint.. She asked about a Tues. afternoon in late Sept., and I started to tell her "no, Tues. & Thurs.'s are socceer game nights ..." then busted up laughing. The last one had graduated just shy of the age of 19 ... I had just so-o programed myself ....
May this be a good school year for all of them (your boys), and you as well ;-}
