first day of school

This is the last first day of school my boys will ever have together. Alec's a senior and Mason's a sophomore this year. Summer was too fast again and I don't like it!!

Thanks to my boys for putting up with me taking these pics every year! 


So I have to look back at all their first day photos. I do it every year. I'll just share a couple.

Alec on his first day of kindergarten twelve years ago at the same school he still attends today.

Both of them together, 3rd and 5th grade...

I'm a very proud, very happy mom. But just a little sad today that once again summer vacation is over and they're another year older.

  1. i think this is my daughters take of the front door with her kids pictures back to school who are now 17 with a girlfriend grade 11 to be.

    Then his sister now going to third year of University to be a teacher. Four miore years to still go.

    Oh your boys are real sports for Mom. Maybe next year they will say. Mom hurry up. Our friends will be here and this looks Mickey mouse. We are not Babies.

    I know when I was at my daughters. My daughter and hubby always kissed them on the cheek good bye for the day at front door inside . This one morning was. Hurry up parents kiss me. My friends will be here in 3minutes sharp.

    Then you know they love you but dont hang on to us too long parents.We wre teens.Your future.

    Handsome lads grown up you have.

    As a Grandparent. I still like the idea of at the door pixs.
