The School Bell’s Ringing

These were our bedtime reading selections Tuesday night.  Yes, that’s right – it’s back to school time!

This is Trenton’s second year of preschool, and boy was he excited to be getting back into the school groove!


And he’s grown up so much since his first day of school last fall.


And he wasn’t the only one that went to school yesterday.

It was Charlotte’s very first day of preschool.


I’m not sure if she was more excited about going to school or about getting to wear the new dress that Mimi made for her.

Or maybe it was the garbage truck that was driving down the road.  Have you ever tried to get kids to look at the camera when there’s a trash truck making its way down the street?


Both kids had a wonderful time at school.  They were somewhat upset that they couldn’t go back again today though.  I hope that they keep that enthusiasm about going to school!

Awww! You have beautiful kids! And what a great way to capture the first day back at school. Love the use of the chalk board.

Reading your posts make me miss Monterey! My daughter keeps asking when she gets to go back to California and her preschool. Hopefully, we'll be back someday!

Sigh......I miss preschool! Mine are going to 6th and 8th grade this year!

Thanks, Kristina! I plan on using the easel every year until the kids graduate. Not sure they'll like my plan as teenagers! ;)

Awww! Monterey is a beautiful place. I can certainly see why you all miss it!

I'd keep mine this age forever if I wasn't always so worn out at the end of the day!
