First day of school


First day of school

Still playing catch up with the camera and the uploads and the blogging and the whole internet thing. So here is a first day of school picture so you can see not just my kids, but the ongoing McMansionification of the house across the street, as well as the truly terrible condition of my driveway. And the flower beds don't look so hot, either.

On the other hand, the children add a certain je ne sais quoi. So like any devoted homeowner with an interest in her property value, I do the obvious thing: I keep them in a pen in the front yard.

  1. Aw, them's some cute kids! They look to be about the same ages as my two heathens - 8 & 10ish?

  3. TR: Ding ding ding! We have a winner. You must be psychic. So ... do you keep your heathens in a pen in the front yard, too?

    Badg: Thanks! But it's not completely insane. That Stud Muffin I Married had something to do with it.

  4. That's why Poppy's daughter is going to get married off to one of my lads.

  5. Do they at least keep the grass-mowing need to a minimum?

    I like your brick pathway - I have path envy.

    I also have child envy - not just because they're adorable but because they are clearly old enough to sleep thru the night and manage in the bathroom by themselves.

  6. Awwww, they'll still allow physical contact for a photograph. So sweet!
    It would take a strong sedative to get my 12 and 10 year olds to pose like that.
