Back To School

My baby girl's first day of 5th grade is today. I still can't believe she's in the 5th grade already. It seems like just yesterday...well, I'll spare you the boring memories of motherhood! :) But time does fly, doesn't it?
Here are some pics from this morning instead:

I can't be sure if she's waving or flipping me the bird in this one. I wouldn't put it past her...she is my kid, after all!

And does anyone remember this Staples ad? I SO love this ad! I think most Moms will agree...this is the most wonderful time of the year! :)

Boy, school sure starts early out your way. We don't start until after Labor Day.

Not that it matters much anymore.

I keep re-reading this post, thinking my eyes are playing tricks on me, or I'm missing something. First day of school...in August??? Are you serious? Please tell me you're kidding and it's just wishful thinking! Or is it because of the weather out there? Maybe they get out in May instead of June to compensate for going back in August?

Even in this commie-filled Pagan liberal State I live in, the sanctity of the Summer Vacation is still preserved. In fact, if those bastards ever try and change it and rob my kids of their right to enjoy the summer, I have a feeling they're going to all be very sick until the Monday after Labor Day. What the hell is the world coming to!

Oh, and rant aside, that is my wife's favorite commercial!!

Cute pictures. My baby will be starting 4th grade next week. And he's already almost as tall as I am, scarey!

Joker: LMFAO!!! Yes, they go back in early August and get out in May here. And yes, it's because of the weather. It's ALWAYS summer here! Well, mostly. In January and February it gets into the 50's at night on average...and I freeze my ass off, but you'd love it! :)

I agree...if they tried to take away the summer vacation I'd be pissed, but on the other side of the coin, if they tried to give any extra summer vacation I'd kill 'em all! That's my favorite commercial too! :)

Yes, time does fly.
Every fall when school starts, I can remember (like it was yesterday) my oldest daughter going off to school on her first day of kindergarten: wearing her brand new saddle shoes and sundress carrying her Barnie backpack. She is now 20 years old. The years go by so quickly.
