*First Day of School*

Well, considering the start we had this morning, the first day back to routine didn't go so badly.

This is not how you want to start the first day of school.... My alarm didn't go off this morning, Matthew's went off and he turned it off and went back to sleep and Alex didn't hear his alarm at all. Bruce woke up at 7:13, a half hour later than my alarm should have gone off and we rushed like you wouldn't believe! We even had time for the annual photos on the front step!

So here you go.... my boys....

This is Alex, heading off to his first day of grade 8. Sigh... he's so big!!!

And this is Matthew, going off to grade 6 for the first time.... he's growing, just not as fast as Alex LOL!

If you want, you can compare these photos to last year...

And here is them on the first day of school in 2002... Matthew was heading off to kindergarten, Alex to grade 2!

Have a good day all!

Wow - what a comparison on Alex - I hadn't realized how much he had filled out in the last year.

Hope you have a good week back at work.

Wow! They are getting big!! Does not sound like a fun morning. We did not have that problem over here...the girls were up before I even had to wake them...like about 20 mins early!! :0)

Wow, Nancy, the boys are getting so big! Such nice looking boys...you better watch out! The girls will all be chasing them! lol :)

Oh, where does the time go, eh? Sometimes I wish we could step back in time to when they were little babies and they would cuddle for hours. But, then I remember those sleepless nights and I'm glad of where we're at now! lol :)

Hope you have a great day!
