Back to school

I know, I know it's been forever. I don't know why-either I was to busy or when I had the time I just didn't feel like it(does anybody else ever feel like that?) The kids went back to school this week. They were all really excited, all of them were up at the crack of dawn and ready in no time. I was really excited to get back on a schedule. I just work better that way. We had a fun summer mixed with "Mom, I'm bored".
Kawika started Junior High this year! Yikes! I' m having a hard time with him growing up. I suppose all mothers do. I took him to the 7th grade kick off(an orientation) and tried to not be one of those moms that stayed and hovered over him. I told him I'd pick him up later and let him go in the auditorium and then I just had to go and peek in there to make sure he was okay. I know pitiful!! He is enjoying it and feeling oh so grown up-not too fast buddy! He reminded me the other day the he will be able to drive in 3 1/2 years!!!

Kalani started 4th grade and is now taking over the role of the big brother that takes care of Kaili. He was is excited to go back and loves being able to see his friends everyday.

Kaili is in 1st grade this year. It's been a little different now that she is gone at school all day. Kalei and I miss having lunch with her everyday and playing. Kalei especially miss her princess partner. :)

Kalei started Preschool and is enjoying learning new things and playing with her friends. She's growing up too fast.

aww, your kids look like so much fun.. kawika looks soo tall to be a 7th grader and to the drivers license bit, Yikes is a good word for that!... I dont have 7th grader yet, but i already know that i'll probably be the over protected mother that will be spying on her kid, and my heart will be going through withdrawls because my kids wont want me to be hoovering!

I agree! School starts in two days and I can't wait. It has been a great summer, but it is time for some structure again! Your kids look adorable, as always.

Ah! Your family is so Beautiful. Your first three are the same grade as my 3. I love your blogsite. We are many miles apart, but our lives are very similar. We miss the brubakers!

My sister's younger son is a freshman in high school this year; his sister is in the 6th grade and is an inch shorter than her grandmother. Unbelieveable!

Your kids are beautiful. Where has the time gone?

Glad to see you posting. Love to the family.
