Today was the big day for Carter! I can’t say that he was excited about going to school but he didn’t complain so I’ll take that as a good morning. 🙂 He did seem excited about recess and seeing his friends! His teacher seems very nice and I’m optimistic that it is going to be a good year. He was very excited that they had “real” desks instead of tables. I heard him telling Seth about it in the van today. Seth was very impressed. It is so funny the things they get excited about.
While I am sad that summer is over, I am ready for a little more structure at our house. I won’t lie…life at home with 4 kids is a little crazy right now! Molly Kate wants my attention constantly and I feel bad for the boys at times. They are SO patient though….they have been excellent big brothers! I know they will love school so I’m excited for them to start. Seth goes 2 days next week and then Ethan will start right before Labor Day.
He looks so grown up!
I can’t believe we have 4 kids! I LOVE this picture of all my babies!

And a back to school tradition…Zach camps out downstairs with the boys the first Friday night after school starts. They love sleeping on the mattress together with their Daddy. A special treat for all of them. Molly Kate and I enjoyed the upstairs to ourselves. 🙂
