Monday - first day of school.

First day of school! The kids were up and ready to leave the house by 7AM! First day tummy jitters for Emily but they were so excited to go to school.
Aidan - age 7 First day of 2nd grade 8/17/2015

Emily - age 6 First day of 1st grade 8/17/2015

I got a 2 mile walk in, read all the papers for the last three days while eating breakfast in peace in quiet. Then swept and mopped floors and cleaned the kids bathroom. Sewed together two black 16 patch blocks and now it is time to finish picking up so I can vacuum and dust. At least it will stay fairly clean until 2:15 when the kids are home from school!
Family hot dog BBQ at boy scouts tonight with the kids and their rain gutter regatta. Hopefully it does not thunderstorm us out tonight. Off to pick up some more......

I just love 1st day of school pictures--your two are adorable--I used to get tummy jitters, too. I recall reveling in the QUIET!!! At least for a few hours, lol hugs, Julierose

Hope the weather cooperated for the cookout and regatta. It just doesn't seem possible that summer is over and school is starting.

Wow School is starting again. Seems so early but tomorrow is the 20th! We finally got some rain today and more possible the next three days we will take it. Starting row 27 on TATW using the black and white polka dot left over from the pickle dish!! Now to get the seam lines marked!
