Happy Day- off to school


The day has arrived that all may be still and quiet at moments in my home again. Yesterday was the first day of school. They started at a new elementary with the new house. Bradley was very nervous and excited and Mark was super cool and calm and Eleanor just flowed into class and said, "Bye Mom." She is so independent. They seemed to have a good day and as usual I had to pull out the very few details they were willing to give up like , "My teacher is nice, I made one friend, we went over the rules and toured the school." That is about all I got. Their school is huge and quite the maze to get around. I still haven't figured out how many levels it has. We only live 1/2 a mile from the school so I bought a bike trailer off craigslist and put the baby seat on the back of the bike and we all ride together to school. I am sure we are quite a site. Maybe I will get a picture sometime. It will be fun to have some one on one time with Luke when Darren is sleeping and to have less kids to haul around town.

They look adorable! I can't believe that they are starting school so early! We always started the 24th of Aug (which was my mom's birthday) she would always say that we didn't need to give her a present.....us leaving was enough. hahaha I know why now!

Amy, for being a newcomer to the blogging world, I can't believe how nice your blog looks! I honestly don't know how to make mine look personal and pretty like that. You'll have to show me. I love that family picture...everyone looks great and the colors are really good. Does Alan participate much in this, or is it mostly you? Have fun with the kids in school. Ellie is so funny.
