The boys decided to clown around a bit… Kerry is on the left in blue; Casey is on the right in red.
My one bear cub….
And my other cub….
They grow up way too fast.
We always celebrate our first day with a trip to Dairy Queen. Casey had a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzard, Kerry had an Extreme Chocolate Blizzard, and I had a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard. With the temps in the low 90’s on this first day of school, it was a super-nice treat to have ice cream!
I’m excited, but I’m also a little melancholic that my boys are in 2nd grade. When they lined up to go up to their classes, I asked if they wanted me to walk with them, and they both said no. Oh… the pains of letting go, but it is part of growing up. Even mommas still grow up.
I’m looking forward to this school year. This is the second year that the boys are in different classes. It will be a lot of work, but also a lot of fun.
