This year school started on September 1st--- just as it should. (School should NOT start in August-- that's just wrong.)
This is Hunter's last year of elementary school. Here's my big 5th grader and my big 3rd grader:
The neighborhood kids waiting for the bus. (Which came way too early so we missed it and had to drive them all to school.)
That weekend Hunter had a marimba performance at a local music festival. They played songs from last year since they only had two practices since then.
A few weeks later they also performed at the farmer's market during a school day. I took Ashton to go watch and help out.
Hunter turned 11 on September 25th. My parents came into town to spoil him and take us out to his favorite restaurant-- Olive Garden.
I can't believe my first born is now 11-- that's crazy. It's his last year of elementary school and last year of primary. He's so smart and talented and a very obedient and morally strong child. He plays three instruments, sings solos in church, remembers everything he reads, and wants to be a scientist some day.
Oh, and a big Seahawks fan! I love my Hunter!
