First Day of School

Eric made it through his first day of Kindergarten and Mary made it through her first day of high school. Eric was fine heading off to school ... Mary was a nervous wreck! However, Mary said she had fun and is looking forward to tomorrow. Hilary is a junior in high school, so today was not a big deal for her and Jack ... well, he slept through the first day of school morning jitters! I decided to stick to my resolution to "simplify" and, therefore, did not put Eric in the gifted program this year. I think he'll do fine where he is at, afterall ... it's only Kindergarten.

Here are some pictures:

At the end of the day ....

The kids kook great! Can't believe it is back to school time already.
Where did the summer go? Time flies when it's 120 degrees!

Eric looks so proud. What a cutie.
Mary is beautiful as always.
Good idea about simplifying. Anything to make life just a touch easier.
