The First Day of School!

So...It was a big day at our house on August 25th. Everyone is in school! Now Kari can sit home and pop those Bon-Bons in peace! (I am so in trouble when she reads this post!) We had a lot of firsts this year: Zach's first year in high school; Meghan and Ricky started middle school; Jake is an upper-grader; and Ammon started Kindergarten. Kaleigh is in 8th grade and Sam started 2nd grade this year. With my new principalship, I am near everyone. The high school, middle school, and elementary school are all on one large complex. I can golf cart over to any one of my kids in just a few minutes. It is so very cool! The bigger kids walk over to my school when they're done with school or done with H20 Polo.
Enjoy some pics from the first day of school!
Here are pictures of the little boys leaving home for Reagan Elementary! And here is a picture of the boys with their new principal (boy, he sure looks awful chummy with Mrs. Christopherson!).
Ammon thought he was so cool as a new kindergartner. This was the first time that I got to attend one of my children's first day of kindergarten. I have always been tied up on the first day at my own school. Now, my two worlds have collided! Kari had mixed feelings about Ammon's start of school. I think that she stopped crying after 2 or 3 days.
The Christopherson-Edwardson Connection
Jake and Jake are in Mrs. Gamez's room. Sam and Carter are in Mrs. Soares' room. Ammon and Bella are in Mrs. Crouch's room. They all ended up in the same classrooms together. Strange!

Hmmmm, I wonder if it is more than coincidence. It's okay to admit that you want the positive Edwardson influence on all of your children. You being the principal, I'm sure that was too hard to swing. They are quite the perfect children, i must admit (the Edwardsons, of course).

We are so jealous that you all get the Edwardsons!! :)

did anyone else notice the surreal look of anticipation on kari's face? how long has she waited for these moments? i'm sure there was a small party in her car when she left the school that morning - i can just see her singing to the radio at the top of her lungs. all because she is ALONE at last!

How neat that Rob is their principal. I just hope they don't land themselves in his office. I think I would dread that phone call! I was blog surfing and came across yours. I love this blog world. It makes it so easy to keep up to date on your favorite famiilies. I love your picture on your header.
