I've been feeling the need to make a comeback! Today was the first day of school in our neck of the woods, so I figured I'd start a new on the blog as well. We wrapped up a fun summer yesterday, one I hope to re-visit here on the blog, and moved swiftly into school mode. The first day of school is the equivilant of a holiday in my mind. It's full of antisipation, excitement, new clothes and me holding the camera.
This year was no different. We kicked of the new year last night with a "back to school" dinner & family night. The older kids recieved hand written letters from mom and a Fathers blessings from dad. It actually ended up being a pretty cool evening at the Dowdle's.
Then off to bed....and back up bright & early!
at least that's what I assumed until this afternoon when Ty got off the bus without his little sister??? When questioned he said, " I don't know what happened, I was trying to get the back seat on the bus."
No worries. She showed up only minutes later with a neighbor, and we had a nice chat about waiting for your sister over homemade granola bars and milk.
Happy first day to you,
It's nice to be back!
