{Wordless Wednesday} 1st Day of School [7th & 2nd Grade!]

I can’t believe it’s September! Where did summer go? Like very year our schools kick off the 1st day of school the Tuesday after Labor Day.

Johnny 1st day of 7th grade

Johnny was not impressed with me still wanting to take his “1st day of school” pic but I told him he had to give me one. (see above) When I tried for a second telling his father to get in the picture I got a huge thumbs down. Hubs wasn’t thrilled either but knows it’s easier to just participate in my photo nonsense.

I was banned from walking down to the bus stops. He said moms are no longer cool. πŸ™

Gavin on the other hand was so excited about today that he even made his own sign! Isn’t it great?

He wanted to make sure Charlie was a part of the excitement!

He even smiled as we both walked down to catch the bus!

    What great pictures of the first day of school. It was our first day of school in a new state so it was quite the day. I agree that it’s easier for them to just join in our insanity that to fight it. And, I over rule my kids and I go to the corner. bahahahaha They’re lucky I’m not hugging and kissing them. =) But, on a positive note, my oldest daughter sent me pics of her first day of college the first couple of years.

    Adorable pics! Gotta love the 2nd graders… this is why I teach primary, I am still cool in their eyes!

  4. Such wonderful pictures of your boys. I completely forgot to take my kids first day photos….everything was just too hectic:)

  5. I love those photos!

    Is Johnny as tall as your hubs?!

    I hope they boys have a super year!

  6. I have one son that looks and acts more like Daddy, and another that is a Mommy’s boy.

    They look happy to go back. That’s funny that Gavin wanted Charlie in on the action.

  7. At least you got pictures. I hope my kids never stop thinking pictures with me are cool, but I know it will happen {sigh}

  8. Great pictures. Johnny looks just like his dad and I love that Gavin made his own sign.

  9. It isn’t the 1st day of school for us here.. but it does make good memories to have photos of their 1st day of school.

  10. The kids look great on their first day of school. Gavin’s sign is cute. Here’s wishing the kids a wonderful school year.

  11. Maybe I should space my kids out if I have more… so that when I’m no longer “cool” someone else will still think I am hehe. πŸ™‚ Landon has the same shirt as Gavin!

  12. Dee says

    LOL! I was thinking the same thing as Alison! I can’t believe your boys are already that old!

  13. Aww. They grow up so fast, and then they want to be their own person. There are days I wish they would stay little… then there are the teen years when I grit my teeth and remember that it wont be long before they are gone out on their own. Then we can take the RV and travel!

  14. Hope they had a great first day! My boys go back today!

  15. Great first day pictures! Our kids started last Tuesday. As a no longer cool enough mom myself, I haven’t been “allowed” to watch my daughter get on the bus in 2 years (I just peek through the window blinds to make sure she gets on okay, lol) Hope they had a great day!

  16. My kids started Monday and I also have a 7th grade boy this year! Lord help us! lol

  17. Carolyn G says

    Great photos, great memories

  18. Awesome pictures! My 7th grader let take the picture in the house but told me not to post it. What he doesn’t know….I did!

  19. Kira says

    The difference between a 7th grader and a 2nd grader. Time flies, enjoy every moment.

  20. MaryAnn says

    My son started daycare this year for the first time. He is 3. Time sure flies by fast.

  21. posh says

    I think they look really happy to go back to school.

    Have a great day!

  22. Katy says

    I’m glad kids still love their moms in second grade and wish I could figure out how to make it last through the teen years :).

  23. Wow Jennifer, Johnny makes me feel old. I have only seen him as a baby in person! YIKES!

  24. love these pics!!!! and his sign IS awesome!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Oh man, I am not looking forward the the ‘mom is no longer awesome’ phase of life that will be here before I know it! You have some handsome kids πŸ™‚

  26. So cute! Love the dad pic. I can’t believe I’ll be doing this too in 2 years!

  27. Love the pics! Happiness in photos!

  28. Katie says

    Yay for Gavin being a good sport! I hope they love school this year!

  29. Hope they both had a wonderful day at school. Also Im also banned from my 6th graders bus stop!

  30. Your kids look great. YOU LOOK FABULOUS!!! πŸ™‚

  31. Anne says

    Looks great! My teens are more of a pain about pictures too, but they frequently cooperate

  32. Awww they looked happy! Hope they had a great first day!

  33. Tiffany Schmidt says

    You should totally have each of them write a blurb for your blog about all the pictures mom takes! That would be a hoot!

  34. Debbie Welchert says

    We have our first 7th grader this year and he likes it but we don’t. Our little sweet baby is turning into a teenager. Next year we have another one going off to 7th grade. Thank goodness we have 3 more grade schoolers. They grow-up too fast.

  35. No matter your teenager doesn’t think taking the pictures are cool anymore. He’ll appreciate it later. Enjoy taking photos with your younger son. Hope they had a great first day of school

  36. Maria Iemma says

    I must congratulate you on a beautiful family. May this school year be full of adventure and learning for your boys.

  37. Aww such great pictures Jenne! Crazy how age can make such a difference of mom being cool – I hope I’m always cool, wishful thinking!

  38. Rosie says

    Love the pictures. You have such a beautiful family.

  39. Nolie says

    Pfft moms are totally cool. The sooner they remember that forever the better off we all are.

  40. Great shots! I will be sad once my kids tell me moms are no longer cool. Happy WW!

  41. Well, at least you have one who thinks it’s still cool to take pictures and walk down to the school bus with mom πŸ™‚
