5 - 4 = 1

All three boys started school today. (Jack started July 1st)

(watching the neighbors leave, they kept asking me to leave, in spite of the fact the doors were not even open)

S had his first day of preschool (they used the smartboards on the first day--I am so in love!!). G started 1st grade and with S at his school too, he felt like the big man on campus.
F now in 6th, switches classes for 9 periods, and is at the brand new school w/Jack as his principal.
After all carpooling duties were completed, some other preschool moms invited me out to breakfast. After breakfast, I am sure they all went on to work or home to complete complicated and necessary projects. However, I...I am not ashamed to say, I came home and took a nap. (ok, I am little ashamed...but only to say it out loud, I have no shame in the nap itself)

This is going to be a stellar year!

(ps- how horrible is the lighting on these shots? someone want to read the manual for me on my camera?)

9 periods...are you kidding me? how do they have time for that? didn't we max out at 7...yikes! oh, and what does S put in his backpack?

I think the best naps are taken as your house crumbles in ruins around you (as long as the bedroom door is shut)

good for you on the nap! Preschool starts tomorrow here and I am hoping for a nap myself!

The boys look very scholarly (and cute). I LOVE naps! Take them when you can!!

Amy said...

Yeah, I should have taken a nap. Great pictures...it was an overcast morning.

I love that first pic! No need to be ashamed of napping. In fact, I am very jealous right now. Don't tell on me, but I totally put A in the swing during K's nap today so I could get some shut eye myself. ;)

I love the top picture! I also love that you took a nap. Sometimes, not often, I find myself engrossed in daytime television for hours on end and then I need a nap.

I love the pictures. They *sniff* all look so big!

A nap is well deserved...I adore naps...I could go on and on about the beauty of naps...

Smart boards in pre-school?! That is impressive!
