First Day of School | Third Grade

And....summer is officially over.  I must say we had a great summer this year and we got to mark almost everything off our Summer Bucket List.  I told the kids we could still mark a few more things off since the weather is still so warm here in Vegas.   


Yesterday was the first day of school for our little man.  I can't believe he is in 3rd grade already.  Time sure does fly.  Elysse won't turn 5 until the end of October, so she still has one more year with me at home.  Well, she'll be starting preschool twice a week soon!  She is thrilled and I'm excited for her because I just know she is so ready!  

This year, due to overcrowding on our side of town, Diego's elementary school is one of 3 that will be going year round here in Vegas.  Diego is excited to be off for random months throughout the year, I'm still not so sure how I feel about it.  I'll have an update mid-year.  For now, I do like that I'll be back to my regular work/stay-at-home mom routine with Elysse and not have to be playing referee most of my day.  Although, I will miss the carefree summer mornings with no rushing or packing lunches.  

How are some of you other mom's feeling about kids going back to school? Love it? Hate it? Let me know in the comments ;)  

I love how their personalities just shine through in this photo!
