First Day of School!

And the boys are so excited! The were each the teacher's helper today (one benefit of having B as the first letter of your last name) and are excited to go back to school tomorrow. The little monkeys were quite unwilling to give me a "nice" picture this morning, and much preferred to be total goofballs. But I did get this one semi-decent one of their smug little smiling faces!

Since today was Jeremy's first day of Kindergarten, I made him a decorated Kindergarten box, filled with goodies like new crayons, pencils, a glue stick, tissues, etc. He was delighted with his new gift. (Matthew and my niece Tori got them too, when they started K, and my nephew Dylan will get one next year.)

And what did I do with my morning of freedom? I had 2 hours to myself. (They have early release all week and won't start on the normal schedule until next week.) I did some laundry and made 10 cards for the Cards for Heroes drive. I love these cute little chickadees from the Every Day Button Bits stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. I just added buttons and some paper and they are good to go!
