This year I had planned to find a really cool location to snap a few pics for “back to school”. We all know the whole “back to school” concept is just an excuse for me to get pictures of my kiddos. Does anything ever go according to plan? We started our new school year when college classes began for my oldest two girls; almost two weeks ago. Today I decided to just roll with it. Everyone was home, the weather was lovely, and the baby was happy. Picture time!
Rebekah is a Freshman in college. Despite her desire to avoid picture day she was encouraged to cooperate. She still lives at home so I know where her yummy yarn is located. I was willing to take the yarn hostage.
Mary is a Senior in high school. She is also taking a few courses via dual enrollment at our local community college. It is weird having my two oldest gone every day but thankful that they are doing so well.
Caleb – Sophomore year of high school. The years are flying by with this guy! Looking forward to some great discussions with him this year.
Lydia – Freshman year of high school. Freshman? When did that happen? Trust me, she would rather be drawing.
Hannah – 6th grade She may be my first to have a true love of science especially in relation to animals. Can’t wait to see where the year takes her!
Sarah – 4th grade This girlie is likely my future right hand. She is always eager to help and does great at her independent work. A really cool big sister.
Sam – 2nd grade This guy…he is a funny one. Loves to talk and loves to laugh. Thankful he can laugh and talk all he wants while learning. He’s a smart guy.
Martha – Kindergarten! The baby girl and she loves it. So happy to be learning to read and to do her math.
Ezra – He is three! And full speed ahead. He is Mr Energy. Go, go, go!!! But cute, yes?
David – 11 months Ah, the little guy. He might have us all wrapped around his little fingers. How can you resist that face?
Do you have any Back to School Traditions? The photo session is my only one. Now let’s have a great year!
