The first day of school was August 19th. But the boys missed the first three days of school because we were still in Utah visiting with my brother Jeremy since he just got back from being in Iraq. Gavin and Christian were excited for their first day, but were a little disappointed that MOM was going to walk them to school. I had told them that they could walk to school all by their selves this year since they are 1st and 3rd graders and only have to cross one street which has a crossing guard. But I still wanted to walk them the first day, so that I could get pictures.
