First Day of School 2010

I can't believe how fast the summer went by and that it is time for the kids to be back in school! Never mind the fact that it's only the middle of August and there is over a month of actual summer still to go... If I had my way, they would wait until after Labor Day, but I guess I don't really have a choice. Anyway, back to school they go! (In the 100+ degree heat!)
Ben is in 7th grade this year! How does this happen? Shouldn't he still be in kindergarten? I just can't believe how fast time flies!
I just told him that I was going to walk to the bus stop with him for the first day of school. Ha ha!! He wasn't so fond of that idea! He has definitely reached the age where he doesn't want anyone to know that he has parents! Or a family for that matter!!
It's so scary to send him off into a place where the influences are so huge and so different from home!

Abby was very excited to go back to school this year! As a fifth grader, she is in her last year of elementary school! CRAZY!
Hair done...Check!
Nails done...Check!

This is going to be a great year! I know it!!
