1st Day of School for the Boys!

Blog?  What is a blog?  Do I have a blog?  Here I have all these photos piled up from the summer.. and I have done nothing with them.. sad!

So here is the 1st day back to school for 2012!!  A rainy Tuesday so we didn't get to do the traditional front steps photos.. I am sad about that.. but screen porch photos have to suffice.

But first!! It was Rob's 1st day too!!

My big 2nd grader Caden!  Look at this kid!  My he has grown!  Apparently it is not cool to wear your backpack on two shoulders.. I noticed this the 2nd half of last year as well.  I just love the photo on the right, it captures Caden's smile perfectly.

My sharp dressed brand-new Kindergartner!  This guys has style.. Caden wears about three of his 25 shirts and fight every day about not wearing "sports" clothes.. but my Cole bless his little heart!  He likes to look good!

My school boys! 

Cora ready with her backpack too!  She starts in two weeks!  Preschool.. gasp!... where has time gone?  So.. I am not sure if Cole is short or Cora is tall!  We will find out Friday at Cole's physical (which I forgot to schedule back in June.. whoops!)

Waiting at the wet bus stop

Caden and Cole!  2nd Grade here they come!

And now for even more fun!  Parents ride with their Kindergartner on the first day to meet the teacher and explore the classroom together.  It is a great experience!  and Cole has been looking forward to it for weeks (and of course so have I)!

Big bus guy! Cole has one of the first stops.. which means for a LONG ride to school.. but it also means a short ride home :) 

About 46" we'll see where he is at the end of the year!

Trying out all the fun learning toys! 

Story-time!  Cole has the same Kindergarten teacher that Caden had (at our request).  She reads the same story each year so it brought back memories of Caden's 1st day.

Not a very happy picture on the Moose Hill bench, I was told the sun was too bright.. he was probably right.
Two happy boys came home from school today!  and they are ready to go back tomorrow!  Phew!

Cole's Preschool Graduation and Tarzan Play!

A little late, but I had put most of these on Facebook already so that is my excuse :)

Back in May Cole graduated from Preschool!! But first the kids put on a play for us.. Tarzan!  The kids work very hard on their play for months prior to the big day, and they are so proud of their performance.

Cole as Tarzan!

He got the Elephant hair!!

Here is Cole getting a bit of help with his lines :)

Two Hands...

Two Hearts...

But we could not get him to understand how the Tarzan yell actually went.. instead he just yelled Ahhhhhhh!

Graduation time!  Looking dapper in his cap and gown!

Cole's class

Tossing the caps....

All the parents got to come up for a Participation Award... or what I'd like to think of as "Awesome Parents Award" haha!

Cole gets his diploma!

Family photo time!

And of course a photo with Grammy!

Cole and his buddy!

What a great day!  We are so proud of Cole!  He has learned so much these past two years.. he started as a little boy who could care less about learning and graduated as a young man eager to learn and he made lots of friends along the way!

Happy Graduation Cole!  It is so hard to believe that you are going to Kindergarten in the fall!
