First day of school

Everyone loves the first day of school....especially the Mom!  It's so nice to have a quiet house for a few hours.  I've been able to really focus on Dallin (he is doing online school), and also have been able to get things done around the house. 
These are our sweet children ready for their first day of school....
 I tried to talk Elsa into wearing the shirt that I made for her, but she really wanted to wear this one.  
Calvin loved his "Thor" shirt and look how nice he looks in his new jeans and shoes.  (We'll see how long the knees hold out....he is so hard on jeans.)
 Abby was smiling, but she said the sun was in her eyes.  (We were standing in the shade)

We got Elsa a new backpack this year because she had used her other one since Kindergarten and it was pretty worn out.  I found this at Very Jane for a REALLY good deal.  Best part about it.....Elsa loves it!

Last fling

This is what we did the Saturday before the first day of school.  We just hung out at home and played on the water slide.
Dallin wasn't there because he was on a camp out with the Scouts.  Elsa was out there earlier but when I got my camera she was done. 

Doesn't it look so fun and refreshing?!
