Back To School...and a Little Fashion Show;)

Nope, didn't get pictures all together. They go to 4 different schools and start at different times. The girls are just waking up when this kid heads out the door at 7:15 for carpool...



The boy. It is so nice to have a boy. Their fashion is so simple, and they are not particular. Third grade this year for Mitchell. I can't believe it.

I have been trying to talk him into going to our neighborhood school this year instead of the Montessori school he has always gone to. I pulled the girls out in third grade because I figured ELP was good enough, and they didn't need a special school anymore.

His response?:"What! I would have to sit in the same desk ALL DAY!" and "I would have to learn the same stuff the rest of the class is learning instead of what I want to learn!"

Too true. But he would be able to ride his bike to school at 8:25. Instead of me driving carpool at 7:15. Very tempting for this mama...

.
This child is seems to be growing up behind my back. When did this happen? She is already in 5th grade. And will be 11 soon.

Kindyl is still my easy going low maintenance child. Let's hope it stays that way. I am not ready for another high maintenance tween...


(Second day. And she didn't want to look up. Something about not liking a fake cheesy picture smile...or she just didn't want to quit texting. I pick my battles...)

I forgot to take this child's picure on the first day. But I came accross these photos on my camera. Rachael and Kindyl were apparently taking photos to judge the best outfits. I think this is what she wore first day. Minus the ever important jewelry and hair, of course.

But I don't know for certain.


This child had a minor meltdown on the first day. So we went for comfort over fashion. On hair and outfit. But then she decided on a little voguing:




Strike a pose, sister. Strike a pose.

I took a few on day two. You can see I do actually get her dressed and do her hair occasionally...She wanted a side pony. But she just got a cute new haircut. So I had to braid it around her head into a pony so it would all fit. I think she is kind of cute.

still posing, as you can see...

Silly girl. I don't know where she comes up with this stuff!


Sorry about the flash. It is just her blingity bling...

We lost our camera right before our CA trip. So every picture we have taken at the beach until now have been from our old camera. And now I remember why I hated it...

Some more fashion, for your viewing pleasure...


(animal print leggings didn't make the cut for school...executive decision...)



Is it just me, or is this 80's trend a little disturbing? And aren't twelve year olds looking a little older than we did? Seriously?

With a child in Jr. High (MY Jr. High for that matter) I am feeling a little old...

Crazy.

7 people know I love comments!:

where in the world has the time gone....remember our 12 year olds in miss bindu's class...reading maps and learning to sew?...hoping it slows down a little.

Yes, 12 yr olds are looking really too mature, much to my dismay. I don't want them around my 13 yr old son!

Cute kiddos!

They are so cute! They do grow up way to fast! Oh and I love that he wants to stay in a montessori school. I would too! They are great schools!

You have got one good looking family! Love all the fashions. And I'm with you on the boy fashion thing...so much easier!

Devan and Robyn said...

They all look so very nice! You have really got to give me "how to" lessons on hair. Poor Ashlyn!!

Why aren't there 20 pics of Mitchell's outfits?? I love the return to the 80s. My clothes are almost back in style!
