New backpacks for school!
Yesterday was the first day of school for my kids. They all headed off to new schools. I couldn't get Sam, my youngest, to loosen up for pictures. I had to start talking about farts before I could get him to loosen up and smile. If you have little boys you know what I'm talking about. Notice the difference in the second picture with his brother. Yah, there's the smile now! My daughter Rebecca started 9th grade at a new school. It's a junior high that has 7-9th so not off to high school yet. She leaves the house every morning with wet hair so I had to wait until evening to take a picture of her.
Aren't these little back packs the cutest? I made one for each of the boys' new teachers. Gotta start a new school out on the right foot! I stumbled upon these on splitcoast. It was posted by Becky of Inking Idaho. She has a tutorial on her blog - go check it out!
They all had great 1st days of school. I couldn't get a whole lot out of them. Don't you hate that? I wanted lots of details and they weren't willing to share it all.
I have lots more cooking on the stampin' burner to show you. Stay tuned!
