Here We Go!

Back to school today. We are all decked out in a new backpack and ready to hit the books...or, more like, the playground!
Ouch - that idea would terrify our kids - they have two more weeks before hitting the books. She doesn't look unhappy about the idea though - always good to get back to seeing friends (if not the homework).

@milaniet The kids were so excited to get back to school I had a terrible time trying to get pictures this morning. We are having a do over tomorrow! (They were excited to see their friends)

Wow, back to school already. In Maine it's around Labor Day before they return. But lovely shot.

@joansmor Hi Joan! We are on a modified year round calendar. We got something like 8 weeks off this summer and extra breaks during the year. It works for elementary students for sure. They love going to school still!

@thistle Thank you Joyce!

@joansmor I get curious, too! It was a short summer so we'll see how they do with going back to school early and then multiple breaks. I think they will like it.

@kt8ird I remember getting really bored in August. When people ask me why I don't retire now one of the reasons I give is I get bored when I am home too many days.

@joansmor Ha! Just like my girls get bored!! Looks like you have photography to keep yourself busy now.

@juliac Thank you! Butterflies seem to be the favorite this year. :)

@gerry Much appreciated!

@ziggy77 Thanks Jo!

@dianeburns Certainly happy, a great start to a successful first day.

@fishers It's a yearly tradition. Next year I am going to get those windows clean before the first day. The doggies slobber and goober all over them!
