I have kind of been avoiding starting back to blogging because I'm so behind and thought I would have to catch everyone up. I realized I can't do that and to just jump back in with where we are now. I'll probably post some important to me photos and stories and also post current happenings in our life. So just bear with me.
We've been busy since I last posted. The kids are older and we've done more on the house.
I'll start with sharing some back to school photos.
Here they are at a park the day before school started.
Playing at the river's edge
I love this photo of the rusty train bridge and the pretty flowers underneath it.
Looking for shells
Eating ice cream and checking out the dam
Alright, the first day of school...2011
Hadleigh...ready for 4th grade
Sawyer...ready for 2nd grade
Ashton...ready for 7th grade
This year's backpacks
Ashton at the middle school (I have to take him VERY early to get this photo so nobody is there watching lol)
I take this same picture of the kids next to this brick wall every single year at the elementary school.
Heading into school
The second day of school, I usually send them on the bus. My friend and I usually meet the first day to take pictures of our kids together, but she was babysitting the first day and couldn't meet me at school. So, I drove them again on the second day. She has 3 boys, the oldest and Ashton are in the same grade and the youngest and Sawyer are in the same grade. Her middle boy is a year ahead of Hadleigh.
Ashton and his buddy at the middle school. Again, we get there crazy early so nobody sees us taking our babies pictures. lol

Hadleigh and my friend's middle son
Finally, the third day of school but the first morning taking the bus
Just for fun, I have to share photos of the animals from that morning. They were curious about the kids getting on the bus.
