Note: The following photo represents an reenactment of the actual events taking place on the morning of August 24, 2010. Jamie left too early for work to participate in the photography and Steve forgot to take pictures but very sweetly agreed to stage a "going to school" scene in the afternoon uncannily like the one witnessed that morning, only with less hitting and more hugging. There were several loud, moaning, "Mooooo-oooom" sounds heard by Jamie over the phone as Steve explained to the children that they had to put their bookbags on and pretend to head off to school at 4 in the afternoon. They survived. And they looked adorable.
Happy first day of school! Today, Second and Fourth grades. Tomorrow, college.
