School Days, School Days

The Boy and Hollywood started school today.

Every year since they entered Kindergarten, I have made them stand outside with their backpacks so that I could take their first day of school pictures. They think I'm a complete dork for making them do this, but I hope to have a big collage of their first day of school pictures at their graduation parties.

The Boy was so excited about school that he went to bed at 8 p.m. so that it would be time for school faster. He got up at 6:15 and was completely ready for school (with his backpack on) by 7:00. The bus doesn’t come until 7:55. He wanted to go to the bus stop at 7:40, but I made him wait an extra five minutes.

Here he is with his backpack:

Here are his new converse shoes that he loves so much. I love Target.

Hollywood wasn’t quite so enthusiastic, though I can tell she’s looking forward to school too. Here’s her back to school pic. This is what a high schooler looks like. (gack!)

And just for fun, here are all three kiddos. Bumblebee doesn’t start kindergarten until Wednesday, so there will be more pictures then…

That's so cute that the boy is so excited for school.

Beautiful kids! And I will do the same thing...have them stand in front with backpacks. I think that's a great idea! :)

JeepMan thought I was nuts to insist he took pictures today since I couldn't be there. He just doesn't get it, but I laughed when he told me how baffled he was by all the other parents going ga-ga taking pictures today! Ha Ha!
