Sixth Grade!!!!

I still can't believe that our children started 6th grade today!

It just doesn't seem possible.

They were all in a hurry to get to school this morning. When I went to make breakfast (about 15 before time to wake them) they were already dressed and ready to go.

They didn't want me to take a first day of school picture today, but Mom can be pretty mean if she doesn't get her way.

(Did you notice that I referred to myself in the third person so that I could try to distance myself from the 'mean' a little?)

Anyway, here's the picture.

In case you're wondering (grandparents), Wyatt does not have a black eye. Yesterday he and Dax were out doing shooting practice and one of the cartridges got stuck in his safety glasses when it ejected from the gun. That's a burn mark under his eye. He says it doesn't really hurt, but I don't believe him because it hurts me every time I look at it.

Okay, back to the subject at hand.

I have a dental appointment very early in the morning (I have to be there by 7:00) so I thought I'd try to get Dax to take a picture tomorrow morning of their second day of school.

I'm feeling pretty sure that they won't be springing out of bed and that Dad won't be doing their hair.
