Every year we have a tradition of taking a picture of the kids on the first day of school. We take the picture by the front door. Here's the first picture, taken in 2006 (kindergarten and preschool)
2007: in first grade and preschool. See how my Mister Man has grown?
2008: second grade and kindergarten - the Little Miss is starting to catch up!
2009: third grade and first grade
2010: fourth grade and second grade
Here are my big kids this week - fifth grade and third grade. Can you believe these are the same kids?
The beginning of the school year is always so exciting. Everything is new - new teachers, new clothes, new routine and new possibilities. I'm praying for a good year where I can watch my kids continue to grow, not just physically but spiritually, intellectually and socially.
As the Staples ad says: "It's the most wonderful time of the year!"
