first day of school :)

jayden & duncan had their first day of school today
i was so excited for them both
and i think they were too
in their different personality kind of ways :)
jayden has to wear a uniform for his school.
doesn't he look so adorable in it?
my little boy is growing up!

my middle child is growing up too
look how big he looks with his big backpack
(sorry we couldn't get any real good pics from duncan this morning,
he wasn't having the smiles)
it was so cute because jayden was telling everyone that him and duncan both started school today
it was really sweet of him and i am not sure why he was emphasizing the both part -
but he did with anyone we would talk to about school
attempting a family (minus me) pic before the rush to get everyone out the door
jayden has to be at school at 9,
duncan at 9:30
they are on different sides of town.
thankfully jordan is going to take one of them
and me the other
if not - the 3 hours i have with just one child would be spent mostly running from one side of town to the other
here is jayden with his sweet teacher mrs.b
jordan taught her kids so it is so fun that she is now teaching his kids :)
i got to know her when we took jordan's students on the 7th grade trip years ago
and i LOVED her then,
so it is an added blessing that she is jayden's teacher now.
as you can see from the picture,
jayden was a little timid at first
that is okay - it is his sweet personality
i know he will love it and warm up as he get's use to it
(according to my parents i was the same way - you probably
would never know that knowing me now :-) )
i picked jayden up at noon
and then we came home, had campbell take a nap, rested
and then picked duncan up at 2:30
i took the boys for a special treat for their first day of school
we went to JD's Chippery
which is AMAZING
and a favorite for all of us :)

i love my sweet boys and i am thankful for their new school year
i know it will be a great time of growth and learning in more ways than one.
i did want to add -
jordan dropped of duncan today and jordan said he just walked in with no problem at all
it is funny the difference in personalities of our kids
i love how it is just in them
and they are different,
and special
just the way
that God made them to be.
