As always summer went way too fast. I don't love it when it's time for the kids to head back to school. I enjoy getting back into somewhat of a routine but I hate the early morning rush and long days without the kids. It's become somewhat of a tradition to take pictures of the kids by the front door but Ashley thinks she's getting way too cool for that and the last couple of years has wanted to spend the night before first day of school at a friends house so they can all get ready together. I should just take 'first day' pictures the next day and that was my plan but haven't quite gotten around to it yet. I also keep meaning to get a group picture of the kids but we always seem to run out of time. Hopefully I will get one in sometime in this first month! Tyler started Kindergarten this year,,,:( Kendra went into 2nd grade and Brandi is in 7th!
