First Day of School Pictures with Chalkboard

Ahh, its that time of year again, THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!

A bunch of mixed emotions! Excitement for their new journey into another grade, and sadness because they are older!

Happy dance because I get some free mommy time, but disappointment that I have to get back to waking up early, making lunches, consistent laundry schedule, regular bath time (often twice a day), oh ya and the dreaded HOMEWORK!

Where's my Margarita? 
I swear you guys, I'm not an alcoholic. In fact, I drink probably one drink a month. Ok, unless my sissy is hanging out with me, lol.

This year I wanted to change up our first day of school pics by adding the chalkboard. This will be our NEW tradition! I wrote the year first and took pictures of them outside of our house and then took some at the school with their grade.

"Ahh Mom stopping taking pics already!" He said
Me: Sniff, Sniff "But this is the last year I get to go into your classroom!"

BFF's! These girlies have been friends since kindergarten, and through their
 friendship their mamas have become Great Friends too!

Thanks for tuning in, until next time...

  2. What fun - I have seen similar photos popping up all over Facebook recently. I wish that I had thought of this, when my children were babies and going to school. Your children are adorable - hope they each have a happy school year!

    1. I wish I had thought of it when they first started. Ohhh well, at least I am doing it now. I have always been good about taking their pictures on the first day of school, Thank Goodness. I think I may drag it out again and use it to say Merry Christmas 2013 for our Christmas Photos.
