Our neighbor gave me a couple shots of Kevin from the first day of school. In these photos, he's sitting next to Adam who lives across the street. Kevin has talked about how Adam is his best friend in their class this year. Because of enrollment numbers, it was necessary to add a fifth 3rd grade class. A few students were pulled from each existing classroom to form the new class. Adam was moved. Kevin has commented that he misses seeing Adam, but is thankful that they still have "specials" (art, music, PE) together each day. I used these photos to document that story.
Next, I decided to scrap Kevin ready for school on the first day. Finally, I went back to the end of the last school year. Well, "almost" the end. It was actually the day before the last day, so I gave it the title "The End is Near." Because of work, I wasn't able to be home to see the boys off to school on the last day. Instead, I took advantage of being home the morning before the last day (awards day) and took their photos a day early.
I think this is my new favorite layout. :)
In other news...
It's hard to believe that it's already been a month since my thyroid surgery. I am quite happy with the way my incision healed. Over time it will just blend in with the natural crease in my neck. I am amazed at how much better I feel since my surgery. It was really worth it!
Tom and Blake are back from their trip. They had a great time hiking, but are glad to be home.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week. I can't believe we are a week away from Halloween!
