I Heart Faces: Back to School

So, yeah.  It seems that two whole months have passed since I've blogged last...for good reason, really.  If you only knew everything that's happened!

Here's the Cliff's Notes version: sold the house...bought a house...found out we're expecting baby number five...went on vacation...moved...started football season...started school...unpacked maybe half the house...had a birthday...gratefully outlasted the morning sickness...beginning a major renovation project.

I might actually be developing a little routine now, which seems like a miracle.  I have a nice sunny spot for my office (actually, the sun's totally in my eyes at the moment!), and I've started catching up on my blog reading.

Which is how I realized that this week's challenge at I Heart Faces is Back to School...perfect, because those are some of the FEW pictures I've managed to take over the last several weeks!  And, it's a lovely way to ease myself back into putting my thoughts in complete sentences like a sane person!

So, here's my entry.  We live so close to the kids' new elementary school in this house that they get to walk!  The first day was gorgeous, if a bit chilly, and the walk was lovely. The kids were a mixture of excitement and nervousness (since they didn't know a soul in their classes), and I think you can see both emotions on E's face as he looked back at me.

  1. Love the look back. What a great moment to capture. Love the story to go with it too. Hope things settle even more for you soon.

  2. Awesome timing, you caught his expression perfectly! How fun to be able to walk to the school too!

  3. I always like it when students enjoy going to school...
