Back To School Baby!

Crazy! Summers already over! :( In temperature it absolutely is not but school is back in session! I miss my kids!! They are really enjoying being back in school, we switched Olivia over to a new school this year and she's LOVING it! The other two will follow suit next year with Nichol going off to a prep school. Crazy that we already have to think about jr. high and high school! Time flies I tell ya.

Looking at the kids' pictures from last year in comparison to this year - unreal! I can't believe how much they've changed.

Olivia is 6 and in 1st grade - FIRST GRADE! How can it be?! She's had a lot of changes this year but she is doing super and adjusting very well. Love ya baby girl

Nichol and Skyler started school a couple days after Olivia and are very excited to see what this year holds. Skyler has the same teacher Nichol did last year which is extremely helpful for us parents, we adore Ms. B.

Hard to believe we have a fifth grader and a sixth grader! Yeah they are annoyed with mom and her camera. Doesn't help that the sun is in their eyes.

Not to be out shined.......Silas needed his picture by the hibiscus too. ;)

OW! Those rocks hurt!

Mom and Silas hang out together every day. He's super at cleaning, catching up on his Amharic movies, and other movies mom didn't let him watch all summer. We read books, play trains, and Silas folds him a mean bath towel! He's become my little coffee buddy and loves doing errands with mom.

I bet it is so much fun to hang with your little guy during the day. With Avery in school all day and Karsen in school four afternoons a week I will get lots of one on one time with my little guy too! I am really looking forward to it!
