the kids

Sunday night - a promised marshmallow roast celebrating the start of school the following day. Chris whittled enough sticks for all the neighbors. This might have become a tradition around here.
First day of seventh grade (note the attitude about my insistence that we take this picture EVERY year):

Look out second grade:

Not pictured - me jumping for joy.

Seventh grade? SEVENTH GRADE??? How on earth did that happen?

My youngest is starting seventh grade next week, but the big news is the oldest just started high school. And he likes it!

Just wait til I get Miss Buxom packed off to seventh grade. Then you and I can get together!

I can't believe it - she looks so tall and he...well...what can I say? He looks 17.

Next year I am taking a picture of all the moms clicking their heels all the way up the road to drop the kids off first day of school.
We are all happier with a nice, long school day.
