school, School, SCHOOL

It had been awhile, so we hit the road this weekend to spend some time with family.
Back at the campus where this guy and I met 15 years ago, Dad and the kids were given a VIP tour from retired professor, Grandpa.  I didn't get to go on the tour (I was shopping for a birthday outfit with Grandma--what fun!) but here's what it looked like from Kate's point of view...

Is this one of those famous mint brownies or a cougar tail?
Kaaaate, pick on someone your own size.

 Success in every way-- I got a new outfit and the kids got to see the ins and outs of BYU world.

 If our big fat Y logo wall sticker at home isn't enough to point them in the right academic direction, then hopefully the tour will.

 We made a few phone calls and had a great turnout of family join us for a Saturday afternoon hike.
 And well, we can't end without discussing the elephant in the room: It was the FIRST WEEK BACK TO SCHOOL.   Kate the great is a newbie at middle school this year--yay for lockers, lots of classes, and awkward times.   Brynn is in 4th and is happy with her teacher despite him seeming tired--well yeah, who wouldn't be tired after teaching for 36 years!   Adrie loves loves loves her new school class and like Matilda can't wait to discuss literature over a box of chocolates with her teacher, Miss Honey.

The little guy has one more year at home. He is a little weirded out by his sister friends suddenly leaving him all day. Until he's drafted into the Kindergarten playoffs next year, we'll enjoy many books and play-dough dates.
Phew! It was one happenin' week.

These pics are great. While it's exciting that your girls are happily back in school, it is kind of fabulous having a little pal still chilling with you at home, don't you think?
