Ben's First Day of School

Monday was Ben's first day of fourth grade. He finally has a teacher that Jake had. It will be interesting to see how the year is for Ben. We really enjoyed Ms. Livingston when she was Jake's teacher and I wonder if she will remember Jake...certainly having Ben in class will be a totally different experience.
This picture really shows off his new shirt for the first day. He is developing his own sense of style for sure. "Bahmpbanawowwow," as Ben would say.

It's crazy how much they've grown! Jake did not have his first day until Tuesday so he is "hiding out" in his pajamas.

Evan and Ben both grew a bunch over the summer. Cute boys!
It's going to be a great year. I can feel it in the air.

I'm so glad you are back. Wasn't it just yesterday that we were sending those boys off to kindergarten? Time flies way too fast.

I'm so sorry to hear about Sadie. That is so very dramatic. But I laughed out loud when you called her cyclops. I really do hope she makes a very full recovery.

Love the vintage photo. Rachel was SO little. It makes me a little bit sad.

Jake peering out the window cracks me up! McGuire still liked school until 5th grade, so hopefully Ben will have at least that much luck.
I wonder, did Jake set as a high a bar with his teachers as you did, Kim? I got so many "You're Kim's brother, right?" in high school, and felt I had so much to live up to - it was almost overwhelming sometimes.
