I am not at all ready for summer to be over and for school to start. I love summer. It is by far my favorite time of the year. I love going to the beach, sleeping in late and just hanging out with the kids. I wish summer lasted longer. When I was a kid we got off school the Friday before Memorial Day and didn’t go back till the day after Labor Day. Too bad it isn’t like that anymore.
Next week is a bit crazy. Kayli starts 6th grade on Monday. Jared and Riley start 1st grade and Aidan starts 3rd grade on Tuesday. Talia starts high school on Wednesday. They all go to school on Thursday and only Talia goes to school on Friday. With parent orientation nights and soccer added in, it will be a very busy week.
I took the boys to get their school haircuts this morning. The school rules require boy’s hair to be cut above the eyebrows, above the ear and above the collar. Here’s the before and after shots.
Dan and I were watching TV last night after having put the kids in bed, when Jared came down the stairs saying that Riley had kicked out his tooth. Jared and Riley have both been sleeping up in Jared’s top bunk this summer. Jared has his pillow on one side of the bed and Riley has his on the other side. Riley said he was getting his feet under the covers when he accidentally kicked Jared. Jared’s other top tooth has been very loose, so it is not a surprise that it came out. It is kind of funny that it was his twin that “kicked” out the tooth.
Falyn’s hair has gotten so long this summer. Today I decided to try and french braid it. She managed to sit still long enough for me to finish and it turned out so cute! Here’s the pics:
