back to school

Hey--What's that sound? It's almost deafening. Can't you hear it? Oh wait. That's SILENCE! The only sound I hear is the click-click-click of my keyboard as I type. Taylor is at school, Sidney is at preschool, and Stella is taking a nap. A mom could get used to this!

Little Boy was so excited about his first day of First Grade. I couldn't get the boy to keep still and act somewhat normal for a picture. This is what you get when you combine excitement and picture taking from Taylor:


My Little Boy is getting to be quite the Big Boy. He's making so many decisions and choices for himself now and letting go of that control has been hard on this Gardener! At age six, longer hair and sketcher's shoes are must-haves on his list.

Little Sister was so excited to be going to school too. She's sporting a custom number made by mom (I'm shameless!). She needed to wear her purple ring to the first day so the other kids would know she's cute. We couldn't resist this cute pink and green panda backpack to make the look complete.


Back to school, back to mom's sanity. Sweet!

So cute! And I can't believe how big they are! I miss the days when Macy would allow me to sew for her.

Taylor's so stinking cute. And we have those pink shoes that Sid's sportin'... love Target. School starts on Monday here. I'm so excited that I might need to get me some Depends.

SO adorable! I love everything you have made for her! I can't wait for silence in my house...2 weeks and counting!

Yea, I was so happy this last week too. But even happier this coming week when Hayden starts preschool! I am still not sure what quiet is, but sounds nice, I'd like some of that! I didn't know you like to sew, one more reason to like you (not that I needed one more reason!). You are one talented Momma!

Cute, cute, cute! I must confess I love going back to school. We had such a fun summer and but I must admit I like getting our schedule back. And a little peace and quiet is mighty nice! Enjoy!
