First Day of School

The parents were pretty upset this Tuesday when all of a sudden all of the kids on the street loaded themselves up on this big yellow bus thing. It drove away with all of them so suddenly we didn't know how to react. Tears were shed, shrieking from some of the women were even heard. Where did they go?! How could they leave us to quiet and clean homes for a whole day. And how absurd that Garth and I could go have a lunch date with Jill and David (their kids were on that same bus)!
But here is what three of them looked like before they were taken...5th grader, 2nd grader and 1st grader.
Calvin left earlier that morning, quietly making his way to the gaggle of girls at the stop.
Sommer left even earlier for her first day of high school (where they have 3200 students)!
Happy Day...shhh....I mean totally sad day.
