Jakob's First Day of Second Grade!

It was so super foggy this morning. I had a hard time with fuzzy shots. Oh well, he's off and at his first day of second grade. Oh, how I will miss him, well, maybe not the picking on the little brother thing, but it's only a half day so we'll see him soon enough. He practically jumped out of bed this morning when I went in to wake him up, so cute. He'll have a ham sandwich on whole wheat with fresh mozarella cheese, lettuce from our garden and tomato; raw almonds, yogurt covered pretzels and a peach sliced to perfection for his lunch. He'll probably end up getting chocolate milk though, sneaker. He wore his brand new IRON MAN shirt that he's been waiting two weeks to wear and he told me he wants to wear it again tomorrow, ummm, how to explain that one. New shoes which will most likely need to be replaced in three months- living in the "country" does that- or maybe it's just boys in general. Again he's sitting at the back of the classroom because he's so tall...I wonder if this is a sign of what will always be. Tessa cried AGAIN because she didn't want to leave him. I made her give him a hug and pulled her away with promises that she'll be starting Kindergarten on Monday and will be able to stay. I can't believe how red his hair looks in this picture!

Get to work little guy!

Dang! he's a good lookin' kid! Oh and kudos to you sister, if you can get your kids to eat raw almonds! We're slowly adjusting them to the whole wheat bread. Let's just say our kids aren't 100% in love with our healthier eating lifestyle. Well, Sarah would be if we fed her nothing but lima beans. Tell me...what 11 year old on this entire planet actually requests eating lima beans???

All right...gotta run. Trying to get some scrappy work done. I'm jealous of your foggy day. Looks comfy!

He looks so much like Travis. Hope he has a good day! I love the fog in the picture and with the rock fence it looks like England instead of the NM.

He is adorable! He look so grown up. I hope he has a fantastic year in 2nd grade. His hair does look red, but he can't compete with Evan there. LOL! Those dimples are great!
