We found out last week at Open House that the boys would have a new bus driver this year - Kevin's 3rd in as many years! The route looked the same, so I assumed the bus would run at the same time as last year. I always get them out the door a little early on the first day to take pictures and also "just in case" the bus runs early.
First, I took the annual shot in front of the front door. I like to see how the kids grow each year and also from the first to last day of school. I always take a full body shot and a close up. They were laughing really hard this year, but it made for some genuine smiles. We were extra early to wait this year. We ended up with a lot of time to kill. I got two invitations to the gun show. No, there's rarely a dull moment with these two!
Tom encouraged the boys to go to the end of the driveway to wait. They waited a few minutes and then broke out into dance... Then Kevin realized he didn't have his glasses!!! I guess we got used to how he looked the first 7 years he DIDN'T wear glasses. Four months later, sometimes we don't notice if he's not wearing them. Luckily, I had time to run in and get them. And clean them.
The bus was still no where in sight, so I took another photo so Kevin's glasses would be included.
The house was QUIET today! The USPS paid me a visit with my Personal Scrapper August kit. I had time to break into it and create a layout even! I completely scraplifted a layout by design team member Heidi/anbzmom. I loved her LO which also used sports photos of her two boys. I'm always inspired by her sports pages.
