Back to school was a little chaotic after dumping all of our furniture and boxes in our new house and then spending the two weeks before school started in Michigan. We had two days after we flew home to dig through boxes to find school supplies and purchase whatever else the boys needed. Mattresses were on the ground and clothes were scattered around dresser-less bedrooms. We didn’t have our annual back to school dinner and we made peace with that. Even the traditional back to school photos happened several weeks after the official start of school, but I couldn’t let that one slip through the cracks altogether.
The end of our new cul-de-sac made the perfect backdrop for our new fourth grader, second grader and two preschoolers.
