walking into the new school year

We went out for dinner last night to celebrate the new school year.
Charlie-11th!
Andrew-7th!
Libby-9th!
Sea salt brownies were made today.  I've made some sort of brownie on the first day of school since Charlie started kindergarden.
I can't believe how fast the time goes.  Especially this summer.  Didn't it just start?
Happy School Year.

Oh, look how big they all are! And how gorgeous is that red hair!? Was it always red?! I don't remember it being red! And yes, summer flew. FLEW. But at least now maybe you'll have more time to blog... :)

7aw! your traditions tug on my heart strings. wishing you smooth transitions!

tell charlie that my kids are digging the snicker doodles and the snicker doodle pie (because I too was too lazy to roll them into balls). In fact, I made them brownie size.

Just dropped my oldest off for her first year of college. This fall brings some mixed emotions in my household. I hope your transition into fall is wonderful!

Oh my gosh, look how big they are? And so tall! Good luck to all and especially Mom. It's going to be a great year! :-) Love that you're keeping with your back-to-school brownie tradition.

Here in the UK we have another week and a half left of 'summer hols'. My daughter goes back on 5th Sept at which point it always feels like the end of summer ...very sad.

It's so frighteneing how quickly the time passes and the kids grow up.

Happy school year to you all.
