Back to school....

I can't believe that it is time for the kids to go back to school. This is a bittersweet time for me. On one hand I am ready for more structure and routine to our days, but I will miss having the boys around. It is also going to be a year of transition as Erik will be starting jr high and Austin will be starting Kindergarten. I wanted to take pics of the boys at the beginning of this new school year, so after giving them each a haircut and convincing them to wear the clothes that I wanted them to wear and begging them to just humor me and pose for whatever pictures I wanted, we managed to get a few shots that I love.

Erik 7th Grade

Cameron 4th Grade

Austin Kindergarten

Ethan Toddler school with Mom

My handsome boys

I love how these pics turned out and it is always fun to see the boys individual personalities shining through. So even though the pictures aren't "perfect" in terms of the boys always smiling or even looking at the camera for that matter, I am a happy Mom to have these little reminders of my boys at this stage in their lives. And I had a great time sharing this day with them as well. Thanks boys for making your Mom so happy today!

Those turned out great! I love Austin's pics... could his smile be any bigger? You can tell he is so excited to start Kindergarten. I can't believe Erik is starting 7th grade. We'll be in that same boat next year.

Great pictures!! How did Ethan get so big, he looks so big standing there! And how do you get him to stand so still?!

Can't believe how big they all are getting. It seems like I was just in 7th grade, and now Erik is there, it's crazy! Hope they enjoy school this year :)
