Best and Worst Day of the Year

School's back in! I can't believe I took almost the entire summer off from blogging and we're already back to Day One of school. I say it's the best day and the worst day of the year because I'm SOOOO happy to have them back in school BUT, 6:00 a.m. comes very very early in the morning. Within about a month, I'll be done with this already and guess what...only 8 more months until summer break!! JOY JOY!!!
Well here's Sydney and Gavin off to their first day of 6th grade and 3rd grade. They wanted to ride the bus to school, which made me kinda sad. I always take them to school and walk them to their classes. This year they wanted to trek it alone. I guess I'm cramping their style now. My babies are growing up... sniff sniff :(

Luke ADORES his older brother but he ADORES Gavin's DSi more, so he knows once Gavin's off to school, the DSi is all his (for at least 8 hours, that is)!!!

Here's the infamous $40 bag that my daughter wanted. She obviously doesn't know that we are in a recession nor does she realize we have 4 kids...but of course I caved...she is my only daughter after all :) !

So long SUCKAS!

This little guy starts preschool next week. Pictures to come!

P.S. I will fill you in soon on all the things that happened to us over the summer! Stay tuned!

The kids look so grown up! That's making me sad. I haven't seen them in so long. I don't think I saw them once this summer. What's up with that?! Hopefully we'll see you guys soon.
