Back To School??!!!

This morning I am trying to wrap my head around the fact that school starts in two weeks.  Two weeks!  Please tell me I am not the only one asking where the summer went!  Sure, there were camping trips, bike rides, endless trips to the DQ, BBQ's, and afternoons spent at Soak City.  It all just passed too quickly for my liking. 

I am forcing myself to get into Back-to-School mode.  Three new backpacks are at the ready (Ryder starts preschool...3 mornings a week...eeeekkkk!) filled with brand spanking new school supplies.  Crisp, new blue jeans are waiting to be worn when cooler temps arrive.  I will admit, with the purchase of an additional Thermos Funtainer, I am giddy to not only pack one lunchbox this year, but two.  The next few weeks we will find ourselves busy with the payment of school fees, open houses, back-to-school haircuts, the promise of new tennis shoes, and an attempt to cram in the last minute summer fun!

Prior to our recent camping trip, I put together this 2010 Back-to-School layout of the older two boys.  With a blink of the eye, this former preschooler and first grader are now entering Kindergarten and 2nd grade! 

I opted to not journal on this layout as I had journaled on each child's individual Back-to-School layout.  I kept the layout simple (as I do with most of my layouts) by sticking to a block style.  I cannot get enough October Afternoon and this was a great layout to make good use of some scraps! 

Happy Monday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!

I hear ya...this summer went WAY to quickly! I always hate it when someone tells me it only gets worse (as the kids get older). :-(

CUTE CUTE layout! Love the grid style design!
