Yesterday was back to school for Mateo & Jaxon. Mateo's a big 4th grader this year and Jaxon's a 1st grader (his first year of full day school). Of course I had to make them stand and pose for me several times. I'm sure they just love this each year, but I'm determined to do it even when they're in high school. I just love seeing them all cute in their new school clothes and newer haircuts!
We do photos in the house first.
And then outside...
I asked the boys to look over at me before they got on the school bus, but Jaxon must have forgotten in all the excitement, but surprisingly Mateo actually looked AND SMILED!!
Sadly this is the last year the boys will be at the same school until Mateo's a Senior in High School and Jaxon's a Freshman. The schools are set up a little strange in this town. Elementary schools are K-4th, Upper Elementary is 5th-6th, Middle School is 7th-8th, then High School 9th-12th. Since the boys are 3 years apart, they won't overlap again for many years.
We'll they boys had a great first day. Let's hope the rest of the school year goes just as well!
