First Day of First Grade

Like last year and the year before that, school prep began on Sunday with the stamping of the shirt. Apparently this tickles.

Heaven forbid that Ollie be left out of something. He got to stamp his hand on a pizza box. Next year he will get his own shirt (!).

Because Maryland continues to deliver the best summer on record, we were able to eat our back-to-school dinner outside. Jell-o! Next year we need Jell-o.

Next year we do not need Chuck putting ketchup on Rhett's face.

Finally it was morning and time to go to school! Notice Ollie spying on Rhett...with backwards binoculars.

When we walked Rhett to school, Ollie insisted on carrying HIS backpack too.

Rhett seemed to have a great day. Of course, he couldn't tell us much about it, other than with whom he played at recess and about the fire drill. I guess that's a good thing!

P.S. So what if I made matching pants for the boys for back to school.


  1. Of course Ollie had to wear his backpack. :)

    The pants are the cutest. I love them so! You're awesome.

    Uh, yeah, no ketchup needed next year. :) I still love your plate and back-to-school dinner. Someday I may even do it myself.

    Oh, and I love the handprints.

  2. I love your boys' faces in these pics. And the pants are awesome! I cannot wait to see how many years this tradition lasts.
