Traditions and belt buckles.

|Lindsay, ready for her first day of 7th grade at Webber Middle School. Don't let the smile deceive you. The complaining about the dread of middle school (which, honestly, I get...) was a constant this summer. Her bark is much worse than her bite (and, unfortunately, I get that, too...).|
|Miles and Samuel are ready for action. These two started on Tuesday about an hour and a half after Lindsay, so I don't have a picture of them all together. Also, Wesley didn't start Kindergarten until two days later, so he's not in the pic either.|
|This is the whole gang at the bus stop. Not all the kids were there for the picture. It's hilarious, though, because there are 8 boys and 1 girl at our stop. They have fun.|
|Miles outside of Mrs. Fenn's classroom. Lindsay had her for the 5th grade as well, so he already knows she's strict but fun.|
|Samuel outside of Mrs. Moat's 2nd grade classroom. She's new this year. So far she has been great. They have classroom money. It has gotten everyone motivated. Samuel earned $16 last week. Also, they have contests between the different groups of desks. If your group wins, you get to have seat cushions on your seats for the next week. You can't imagine how much this motivates those 2nd graders.|
|The Kindergartener, Wesley, finally gets to go to school. He was so excited. Julia couldn't resist jumping into the picture. Also, you can see "Hobbes" in this picture. This summer my cousin's kids gave that to Calvin.|
|He was ready for the bus, too. How could you not be when you get to go with your two older brothers?|
|The traditional picture by the school sign. There was a total line the first day of school, so we opted to take one on the third day of school which was Wesley's first day.|
|Wesley already listening intently to Mrs. Krenning. Here they are sitting on the "ocean" carpet learning where to put their lunchboxes. Yes, I have him in all day Kindergarten. I think that's why I'm missing him so much. That's all that Mrs. Krenning teaches, and she is such a great teacher. sigh|
Updates - not always frequent - on our family and its happenings. I like to post pictures so that our families on both sides of the country can see our kids grow.
