Ryan on his way to his first day of 8th grade . . . seems like yesterday when Chris took him to his first day of Kindergarten. Only this time, Chris didn't walk him inside to say "hello" to the teacher and help him find his desk :-).
Sophie (2nd grade) and Caroline (6th grade) ready for a new year.
Sophie talking with her new teacher before she goes into class.
Caroline was SO excited to be with all her friends again - she's the queen of "group hugs!"
"Really? . . . you're not joking . . . tell me more . . . NO WAY!"
For old time's sake - a picture of Ryan's last day of pre-school (his "graduation"), hmmm, that would be spring of 2000. That was when "group hugs" were reserved just for Mom. They're growing up too fast, but it's been a wonderful journey watching them change and become such great kids. However, I can't help but wonder what Ryan would think of me if I sent him to Jr. High in THAT outfit??
