Back to School and Welcome to High School!

My boys went back to school today!  It was a little different for DS1, as it is his 1st Day of High School!!!!  I just can't believe he is there already and I know all to well how quickly the next four years will fly.  Many times in the recent days I have thought about how tiny and small he was when he first went off to school.  Wow, how times have changed. Here he is in his 1st grade picture! 

The 1st Day of School is always a "Mama Drama" day for me as I kinda feel sad when I have dropped them off and know that we are yet another year closer to the end of their school careers; but on the other hand, this year, I was glad for them to go back because I have been craving routine that we don't seem to have in the summer months.

DD has been back at college since July 31st so I think once she went back the boys and I got into the "back to school" mode so they were ready for the school year to begin as well. 

We had a smooth 1st morning, with everyone up, dressed, fed and rooms straightened with time to spare.  I hope that is a sign of things to come!!! 
This is going to be a great year.
