Back To School...WHAT????

Can you believe it is that time again????? Where did our summer go??? Actually it is still summer to me and I swear I get on my "soapbox" every year about how it makes me so mad that they can't just start school like almost everyone else does...after Labor Day!!! DUH....Oooo that totally drives me crazy...Needless to say my poor kids still smiled for the camera with their new backpacks!! Notice backpacks aren't so cool anymore for my big 5th grader Merrick, who convinced me to get her this groovy looking tote bag!! Thank goodness they both like their teachers this year!! Too bad Merrick judges whether her teachers are going to be good or bad by the way they look....if they are "nice and pretty" then we will be having a Great year!! A very BIG THANKS goes out to all of her past & present teachers who come to school looking like they had just come from "Hair & Makeup". Somehow that has made my life that much easier!! haha
Then there is my cute little "Fish" who really could care less about appearance, except his own of course...He has loved all of the great teachers he has had so far and they adore him!! Seriously...who doesn't love this kid???
Campbell also went back to school this week...She is attending the 123 Learn Preschool where she was last year just 2 days a week! She LOVES it here and absolutely LOVES her great teachers Ms. Carol and Ms. Melissa!!! But this year is also kind of a sad time cuz her BFF Katelyn Wankier isn't here with her...and when I dropped her off on Tuesday and she asked me where Katelyn was I almost broke out into tears...It was soo heartbreaking!! She loves and misses Katelyn soo much!! However, her other good friend Victoria Newbold is now in her class, so hopefully she will not keep asking where Katelyn is everytime I take her to school...BooHoo.

I can't believe they have already started school either! That seems so early, it just seems like it's still summer time! Campbell looks so cute, how sad that her best friend wasnt there anymore!

That totebag seriously looks bigger than Merrick! I love the back to school shots and puh-lease don't act like you are truly sad that the kids aren't back in school and out of the house! One more week and I will be singing the same song!

Alex has been in school all week already. It is seriously too early, but it is nice to get back to the school routine.
Merrick's tote bag is HUGE but really cute.
And yes, we all love Fish, and of course all of your kids.
