First Day of School!

Well, today is the first day of school! What a fun, nerve wracking time it can be! Jon was off without any problems this morning. Just get him to school and he is fine! I walked Kyler to school and took him in so I could see his classroom. It looks great! His teacher this year is very structured and organized so it will be a bit of an adjustment from last year but I know he'll be just fine! As some of you may know we are big Green Bay Packer fans (being that we hail from Wisconsin!) and Kyler got some new clothes from grandma this summer SO he had to wear all Green Bay stuff on the first day. Grandma even got him a GB backpack and lunch box so he was a walking blur of green and gold this morning! LOL! At the end of the year last year I realized that Kyler is my youngest (should that really have been a surprise?) and therefore I was watching him do all the firsts for the last time. I was so sad! It continues some today as I can hardly believe he is in 4th grade. Just knowing how fast the time went with the other two I know it will fly right by with him too. I guess I should have learned to treasure every moment...and I do! I wanted to take a picture of Jon this morning too but we were in a rush to get out of here when Jon wanted picture. However, Kyler suggested we stage a picture this afternoon, just not under the clock 'cuz that would give us away! :o)

So, I have been seeing lots of really neat teacher gifts come through on my Yahoo groups and I decided that maybe I should make something for Kyler's teacher so...I did. I made another 2-5-7-10 box and decorated it with some apples in a pail. I am SO please with how this turned out so even if his teacher isn't thrilled with it...I am! You can see how I made it HERE.

I hope you all have a great day!
