Obligatory Back to School Post


Despite my absence from blogdom and my presence on Facebook, I am a blogger at heart.  So as I have been posting back-to-school entries since my kids started school 9 years ago, I feel compelled to continue the tradition.

Last Monday, Nevin and Evangeline had their first day at Grand Center Arts Academy, a new charter school in St Louis.  Here’s are their pre-commute photos before heading out the door:

Goofing around!  I think middle school is the beginning of the “need to be goofy” stage.

Charis, a week later, heading to day one of second grade.

Calvin is our homeschooled high school boy–yes, I said HIGH SCHOOL!!!  So far, I have no photo of him at his computer doing school work or on his way anywhere, so this shot of him at the Missouri Botanical Gardens last week will have to serve as his first day picture.
