It has been a whirlwind August getting ready for school. I forgot how much of the summer was sucked away by volleyball two a days. And then of course there was my class room to make ready.
Then, all of a sudden out of no where, it was the first day of school. Super-fast cut out letters were made on the way out the door for the traditional Ayers family back to school portrait.
This one is into Instagram, so she lets me take the pictures, even if she is just a little too cool to hold the double digits.
Mostly, they whined and made goofy faces in protest of the pictures. And SOMEHOW I didn't even get Gracie and Daniel by themselves! Oh well, it was a dash to the car kind of a back to school morning. Everyone seemed to be happy with their teachers and classes. This is the last year with us all spread out into 3 schools. Next year, we will all be in one building. AND - next year Ally will drive. Crazy thoughts! But, mostly, a very exciting and busy time of life. Actually, for some reason fall is the busiest of all. Pee Wee Football, volleyball games 2x a week, constant practices, and a lot of student ministry stuff going on. I'm so thankful all of our kids have refused to play basketball. God knew we needed the downtown in the middle of the year.
