First day of SCHOOL

It's here already! It's 8:29 am, and Caleb and Cameron have been gone for almost an hour, and Rachel and Ethan left about 15 minutes ago. I don't think ANYONE was excited about it. They all said yesterday that this summer went way to fast.

Caleb worked a LOT of hours at the swimming pool, and really enjoyed his job. From what I gather, he did a good job, too! He's already looking forward to working at the pool again next summer! His job kept him tied down so he didn't get to travel as much as the rest of us, but that didn't seem to bother him too much!

Ron and I cruised with Erik and Kelly. Rachel, Ethan and I went to Ohio for graduation and Rachel stayed in Indiana, while Ethan and Ron and I went to St. Louis. Cameron, Rachel and Ethan were in Nebraska for Phil's ordination, spent a week in Missouri with friends or cousins. Ethan went to church camp. We all went to Ohio for vacation, including a fun time at Kings Island. Cameron, Rachel and I went to Aunt Sue Ann's and Frankenmuth. Ron went to Houston. Caleb and Ron went to Orlando. We swam, fished, bowled, camped, and went to Lost Island...

well, I think we have to say it was a busy, but really good summer!

Here are their "first day of school" photos...as traditionally posed in front of Dixie's shrub!Caleb started 11th grade today!Cameron is a FRESHMAN!!Rachel started 7th grade!And Ethan is in THIRD grade!

Love the pictures! I love getting those first day of school pictures :-)

End of summer is painful - back to responsibilities and work... although, it is also back to seeing friends every day :-)
