The first day of school

The first day of school went off without a hitch.  Everyone was up and ready and smiling.....I wonder how long this can last?  Joe is in 3rd grade and Hannah is in 1st.  Matthew started high school, he's in 9th grade.  Megan actually started school the day after this one but went to school to help with freshman day and is now in 11th grade.  I had a lovely first day of school.......I was finally able to wake Josh at around 945.  Josh starts college next week.  Anyway, we ran some errands and then went to lunch.  I had a coupon for a free meal at Noodles :)  It was nice spending that time with him...he's growing up.  All in all it was a wonderful first day of school.
ahhhh look how loving......remember, looks can be deceiving.  

Matthew is actually smiling a cute smile and not some crazy's a first day of school miracle.

Just waiting to go in her classroom.....funny little side note, the little girl standing in the picture was crying because she wanted her mom.  I have to say that NONE of my kids have cried or wanted me to stay with them on the first day of school....I don't know if this is a compliment to me or not.

He's ready for a new year.
Funniest Conversation of the morning:

Me: Get your backpack

Matthew: I don't need it, I have nothing to bring, it's the first day of school.

Me: You will get things to bring home, get your backpack!

Matthew: I will just get papers and I can put those in my pockets.

Megan:  The kids who fold up papers and put them in their pockets are the kids who fail.
