What will the school year bring?

Back to School Eve started and ended in the pool.
Isn't that how summer should be?
Especially when it is melting outside.
We talked about what the year would bring.
Who they were excited to see again.
What they were looking forward to most.
We prayed for their teachers and their friends.
We ate macaroni and cheese.
 Lucy is crazy excited about COMPUTERS!!!!

Halley can't wait for SCIENCE!!!!  (My future nerd training is working.  Hooray!)

Loving, love, love, the crazy missing tooth smile.  I hope that the big teeth take their sweet time, because this is just too, too good.

 Shane even joined the festivities.

An after dinner swim was in order to combat the heat, but they were quickly lured out with the promise of cheesecake.
Dreamy, creamy, ridiculous cheesecake.  Makes you wish you didn't eat a bite of dinner so you could have more room for cheesecake, cheesecake.  Go to the store now and get the ingredients to make your own cheesecake, cheesecake.  Seriously, go.  Right now.

Every minute of the night was great.  Just being together, doing something extra, letting them plan, it got them ready and excited for what the year has in store.  I am just as excited as they are.  Pretty excited about the leftover cheesecake too, not going to lie...
