Seasons - Back To School

Joining Jesh for SEASONS today.

It's:  Back To School Season around here.

Today was the 1st Day of School and so it's time for me to share the annual back to school photos of Coleen.

She started Middle School today (6th Grade) and this is the Shirt that the new students received the other day at their Orientation.

 This is the outfit she chose to wear for the first day of school.

She was excited about going to school today. - Yesterday the poor girl had a stomach ache and was sick most of the morning but started feeling better in the afternoon.  Thank goodness because I would have hated for her to miss the first day of school.

As is a "tradition" of mine I like to show (side by side) comparison shots from the previous school year to the current one.

Wow there is a huge change this year.
Finally a shot of her mom getting ready to drive her to school.  Grandma will do the school pick-up this afternoon.

Hard to believe that summer is now over atleast as far as being out of school.  It's still fairly warm here with temps in the 80-90's so we've got summer weather for awhile yet.

Have a great day & don't forget to stop by Jesh's blog and check out the other participants for Seasons.

  14. This summer sure flew by!! My own don't start school for another week, and we will try to grab every last chance of sunny freedom that we can. But I notice that while the days are still warm, the nights are much cooler ... and some trees have even started to change their leaves!
