I ❤ Faces: Back To School

It has been 3 years since someone in our family had a "first day" back to school. I have to say...YAY...to that because that means it has been 2 years since J finally graduated from his various graduate schools.

Not that J wouldn't mind going back to school for, oh, a 4th degree...but I am not hesitant in the least to admit that i am pleased HE is now the working one in our family! And, like they say, "Once a student, always a student (of life)"...right? Maybe I should be the one going back to school--seems like I need a bit of brushing up on colloquialisms.

Anyway, it will also be at least 4 years until we send our little Monkey off to school, too (and the thought of that is already making me a little sad) so, short of stalking someone's kids as they head into school, we don't have any recent back to school pics.

But that won't stop me from entering my fave weekly contest over at I ❤ Faces!



This week's theme is "Back to School"
{in case you hadn't figured that out!}

I thought that I could do a spin on the theme by posting a picture of my 5-year collegiate homecoming.

You know, when we went "Back to School"...

get it?

Turns out I left those pictures on a CD in Florida...
So I'm improvising yet again.

This picture is from when we were getting ready to take the monkey to her first Harvard v. Yale football game. Despite it not being a true homecoming, we definitely went back to J's most recent alma mater {in spirit} for that crucial and oh-so-fun game.

{I hope it counts!}

It, at the very least, put us in a very Back-To-School kind of Fall mood, which I love!

Absolutely adorable! I've always thought that babies were the brilliant ones anyway, and her shirt proves it. What a creative mind you have, along with a great eye!

We actually ARE in the ATL area.. west Cobb, to be exact. So yes, it's been about a month now, and he does love his teacher. But not quite as much as his freedom...

I love it. Just love it. And I think it is probably good not to stalk the neighbors children. Coming from someone who does stalk neighbors children, I can only say, everyone looks at me funny. I don't want that for you : )

Becca said...

I love it! So creative :-) and her little shirt is too cute!

Sonya said...

I think that is a great take on the theme. I didn't enter this week since my little one isn't in school, but I like the way you think!!
