Monday was the first day of school for Travis. Tanner started last week, but Kindergarten didn't start until this week. He was pretty excited to get ready for school and catch the bus. Didn't even complain about having to get up early. The bus comes at 7:30, so they were up by 7 am. This is the sleepy head who sleeps until 9 am, we're talking about. It was an absolutely ugly morning to start school. There was a thunderstorm at the time, so it was raining, dark, and dreary.

This is Tanner and Travis in the morning waiting for the bus. Luckily, they humored me by sitting still for a pic, even though they both gave me fake smiles. Travis was so excited to pack his lunch and take it in the new lunchbox he picked out. I tried to talk him into a super hero or Scooby Doo lunch box, but he went for the plain black nylon one that's shaped like a regular old lunch box.

He had a lunch of pb&j, fruit and a twinkie. Tanner had a turkey sandwich.

Tanner seems to enjoy school so far this year. Hasn't even complained too much about homework, although I'm sure, that time will come. Luckily, Zach, the PITA kid who lives up the street is not in his class. Man, I hate that kid. But that's another story.....

Catching the bus. Notice the rain drops in this pic.

Coming home, the sun (or is that sons?) has returned!

Travis said he liked school. He said he made some friends, and got to draw a picture of himself. No recess today though due to the rain. I think he liked riding the bus best of all. Hard to believe I have two going off to school now. They grow up way too fast. :o(

Those two faces in the first pic are hilarious! You can tell they aren't really in the mood.

So glad you took these photos to share. I can't believe he's in real school now.

So glad Travis likes K, the bus ride was Derek's favorite part of K too!! I hope they both have a great year! Derek started on the 23rd, he's in 7th grade this year, can't believe that! Darcie's preschool starts on the 11th. We have Open House the 5th and I've spent all week with the teachers getting the rooms ready. I'm the treasurer and on the board for her preschool. Just wait until you get into all that!!
LOVE the pictures, thanks for sharing!!!
