Back at it....

We're back to it. The daily grind. Waking up when it's still dark. All the homework. Schedules galore. Summer is over. Do I sound sad, bitter, completely unenthusiastic? That's because I am. I really love our summers. It is a time that all schedules end and we are free do what we want, go where we want and sleep as late as we can. I love it. Life is just easier, even with everyone home. I just love it. K, now that my tantrum is over, on to real life! As much as I hate to see it come too quickly, there is an excitement in the air when it is back to school season. The kids were very happy to start and were very much looking forward to their teachers and seeing their long lost friends. Alexa started 5Th grade with Mr. Garza. I went to high school with him and he is one of the most motivational teachers I have ever come across. We are soooo happy to have him. She will also spend all of her reading/writing time with the other 5Th grade teacher Mrs. Harp. She is a family friend so we are double happy with that! Blake is stating 4Th grade and has the wonderful Mrs. Thompson (Alexa's last year teacher). Mallory is starting 1st grade with the legendary Mrs. Ross. We love her so much! This year couldn't get any better for my kids! They are getting some of the best of Hickman's best. And that is saying a whole lot!
First day, August 12
Poor Brittan. She was going to be with out her "guys".
The twins.

Lex didn't make the group shot. She wanted curly hair, so I was still doing it while Todd was taking Blake and Mally's pictures. She looked cute, I just had no idea what I was getting myself into curling her hair that way cause she's wanted it curly at least half of the days so far.
Another curly hair day.
And another.

Sooooo cute! Seriously, I want to throw a spastic fit when I see how perfect her curls are. You have a gift my friend. Really, I can't wrap my mind around it. It blows me away. Can't stop freaking out.

Anyways, when did you have triplets? They look like they're each 2 months apart. J/K. I have 84 exaggerating problems. Really they all look old to me. Where does the time go?

I miss you and we need to get together and laugh sometime soon. We could laugh at about 84 things right now. If only it wasn't the middle of the night.
Your kids look great.

p.s. Sorry about summer ending. It's so wrong
Also, I was tired and silly when writing this...can you tell?
