I love this time of year - when the hectic summer days settle into a nice routine, which is not any less hectic, but at least punctuated by the scheduled comings and goings of the school bell. I tend to thrive under that external motivator - and am thankful to have a bit more time to settle into our new home, and tend to my business with a bit more focus.
I also happen to love the routine and tradition of our back to school pictures - taken the morning of, and in front of our front door. I was very pleasantly surprised that the light on our porch is just as nice as our previous house... and I love how they turned out.
Here they are: Knucklehead #1 (AKA Max, the 5th grader), and Knucklehead #2 (AKA Sam, the 3rd grader)
