First Day of School 2012

The beginning of school has always been one of the most exciting days of the year for me. It goes Christmas, my birthday, Valentine's Day, first day of school. I love new school supplies, the new clothes and back packs and seeing friends that you haven't seen for a while. Now I get to see my own kids growing up and heading off on their own. Avri started 2nd grade and Talmage started Kindergarten this year.
 See? School is so exciting that you have to pose.

 We got a lot of posing this morning!
 Aunt Amber and Uncle Josh were here to see the entire excitement of the morning.
 The nervousness kicked in right as they got on the bus.
 Then I followed the bus to school so I could get more pictures. Yes, I'm one of THOSE moms.
 Talmage had a crush on his teacher the day that he got a letter in the mail from her, a couple of weeks before school started!
 Avri is getting so grown up!
 On their way home from an exciting first day!
 And they had a welcoming committee.

Mercedes started preschool this year. I forgot to get pictures of her first day, but we decided to take pictures of her in her school shirt that she wears for field trips and other things.
 She such a stinkin' cutie.
 And here is the bag that she got to decorate.
All of the kids absolutely LOVE school. Mercedes goes four days a week in the mornings and the other two go all day long. But they have fantastic teachers, good school programs, and I've been able to be a bit more involved this year since I don't have quite so many tag-alongs. :) It's been a great year so far!

I guess I will have to step up our wedding anniversary celebrations so that they will make the list. ;o)
