SEW & WW: Back to school

Well, I didn't manage to get pictures of the boys before leaving the house on the first day of school, but I took my camera and got some pictures while we waited in the carpool line and just after the boys got out of the car.

As you can see, Bearhug didn't feel like going along with the wear-something-nice-on-the-first-day gameplan (which we encouraged but weren't going to force anyway). He was really nervous about his first day so we didn't make a big deal out of it.

Cuddlebug did, which kind of surprised me because usually he is pretty strict on only wearing shirts with collars at church.

The biggest surprise was Little Bitty. Based on his behavior last week (not to mention every other time he has returned to school after a break), we were prepared for some major resistance - of the kicking, screaming, grabbing onto the doorframe of the house and car variety. However, ever since his open house he has seemed excited about going to school, and sure enough on the first day he was really cooperative and happy to be going.

Blew. us. away!!

And not only that, we figured just for fun we'd see if he'd let us put on a non-Thomas shirt, and he actually did! Well, the distraction of the Oreo might have helped. ;)

wow - I thought I had a hectic life!

Love the first day back at school hair cuts.

I have to get my kids into school uniform, would much prefer to be able to let the children express themselves - even if it means letting them go in collarless shirts (he looked smart to me!).

Little Bitty looks so handsome and cute! Nice to hear that he's looking forward to going to school! Maybe you should have Oreos stocked so you're prepared just in case ;) Thanks!

Your boys all look very nice. Bitty's face on the last one is awesome!
