2012 School Days

Backpacks packed...
 

New outfits laid out...


Teacher gifts crafted :)


It must be the First Day of School!

 


These two little guys were SO excited to get up and go to school....and the main reason why?


They have the BEST teachers ever! I'm so lucky to already be friends with both of their teachers already. I can't be sad about sending them off when I know they are in such good  hands :) 2nd Grade & Kindergarten...WATCH OUT! The Madsen Boys have arrived :)


Check out these DARLING Back to School Banners that Sarah Hamer aka Pink Cricut created for her little ones with the Grade School Stack! I love how we both have the same aged kids!! The big "2" and "K" ;)


Such a cute idea!! Especially once the pictures are scrapbooked!


I hope you all have a wonderful day!! I know I am enjoying my peace and quiet...until the school bus heads this way! ;)

  13. Great pictures! How wonderful that you already know their teachers so you can feel comfortable with who they will be spending so much time with. My son's school doesn't start until the day after Labor Day.

  14. Oh, I really like the idea of taking pics of their gear!! Should do that before he starts 3rd grade... right after Labour Day. Awesome outfits and bags (well, we have an identical SW one, so there.) I know licensing is a problem but t would be so cool to get some of the themes boys love represented in scrapping products - Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pirates... etc. I know it would make my life easier!
    I digress - just wanted to wish your boys a great school year!

  20. These are the most special memories of your kids...they will look back one day and giggle and ask you "Why did you dress me like that"? My boys (grown men) just did that last weekend!! LOL
