The boys were marched outside for their annual
The Youngest went for silly.
The Oldest went for the modeling look. "Hey Ladies, check out this action . . ."
And then, because I'm really cruel, they had to pose with each other.
Don't they look thrilled?
Ah . . . much better. I think.
And off they went . . . and I am dancing jigs around the house!! ;)
The Youngest started seventh grade today . . . and his brother is now a ninth grader. Yes indeed, high school is upon us! Trying to soak it all in . . . wondering where time went and HOW DID I GET THIS OLD?! I remember my own freshmen year like yesterday (actually, better than yesterday. I really can't recall yesterday too well). Crazy stuff . . .
I would normally be way more emotional than I am on this first day of school, but it's also that time of year for the germs- and they seem to have gotten to me extra early this September! So I'm way too tired fighting some bug to make any more of it than it is. And that's probably a good thing.
So lots of this today . . .
And tea, too . . .
And then it's early to bed for this mama.
Here's to hoping this is all the illness it's gonna be this month!
