awwwwww! I love the pouty face. Enjoy the new found quiet! :)
Oh, it's so fun to read a back to school post with kids in uniform. My old plaid skirt was not as cute as Abbey's! And that pouty face sums up his close relationship with his older brothers and sister - love it!
Haaaa! That photo of Patrick is hilarious!
Too funny! Laughed out loud at Patrick's face! I always hear the theme from "SixFlags" (with the little old man dancing) when the kids get on the bus the first day.... then I cry all the way up the drive way.... love your blog ;)
I'm so glad you brought up the crying/sinus headache thing, too. I have the exact same problem. I'm heading in for sinus surgery in 2 weeks. Maybe they'd give us a 2-for-1?
i feel your pain! (not the foot pain though, i'm very sorry about that!) my big boy started preschool for the first time & it's been a big change in our home. me & the little sis don't know what to do with our 3 hours 3 times a day, she really misses him!!
Your pictures are wonderful!
I just sent 4 off to school yesterday, too. The house is pretty quiet now since it's just my 1 year old and me. I kinda had the same reaction as you - mostly expecting to be sad since I sent off a kindergartner, but ended up just feeling like this is the way it's supposed to be and enjoying a few hours to catch up on the housework while baby napped. Little Patrick's face looks so sad! Poor little guy.
They all look so cute in their uniforms! What a great bus system :) And I looooooove the photo at the end!!!
Oh my goodness! Patrick's expression is a classic. You know that's how he felt though...probably thinking he's missing out on all fun. :) Kiss those sweet checks.
Happy Back to School Day on clover Lane! Good Luck keeping the little guy busy.
I looove your street. So beautiful and homey looking. And that last picture of Patrick is so sweet.
Nothings more fun than sassy red shoes! Love it.
Little Patrick's face made me LOL. What a doll, even when he is upset.Happy first day back to school!
I still have these last 48 hours of summer to go. I don't now if we are going to survive. Thanks goodness I live in San Diego. We are headed to the beach tomorrow for one last hooray.
Your kids have such good style. Love the red shoes and the tie! Precious.Cute post.
I always thought crying was a waste of time too and I don't like the headache afterwards much either!Love Patrick's face at the end - priceless!
hahah loving Patricks face.
Oh, what a face! So cute. Post a picture of his face when they all come home again. I want to see that one. :)
Patrick is just sad he isn't getting to ride that big yellow bus!!! (It must look enormous to him)Few more days of summer left for me. I have very mixed feelings about it. *sigh*
You brought back memories of yelling "bus"!!!!I have a similar "happy" guy at my house. I guess we'll have to learn to play again.
Love the picture of your little guy at the end! Absolutely precious. My 2 year old only took 10 minutes to loudly lament, "I want brober (his version of brother)" after my 6 year old left for his first day of school this week.
i get the sinus headache after the cry- hate it.
Love the last pic - too cute!
Nice blog with nice pictures reminding me of my school days. your blog is so cool.
