Since Ryan's high school starts at 7:30, we left the house before sunrise!
Many times I've wished I'd been more consistent with these first-day-of-school photos. Some years Ryan has been on the left; other times it's been Katie. This year I decided to let technology fix my error. Behold: Ryan and Katie's First Days.
At the end of August camp, Ryan had plenty of reason to be proud.
I, on the other hand, only managed to embarrass myself during the annual "show the folks how hard marching is" part of the evening:
AAAaaaarrrrggghhhhh! Awful, awful, awful. And I have to wait a whole year before I can redeem myself! Good thing Ryan's the one on the field and not Old Mom. (Video provided by my "friend," the band director.)
In spite of my attempts to sully our family's good name, we capped off the evening with ice cream.
