Wordful Wednesday - First Day of School

We came back from our camping trip on Monday.  (more on that later...we had a great time & I have lots of pictures to go through.)

Ian started 4th grade on Tuesday. 
He has changed so much from last year and the year before that.
These are photos from 2008, 2009, & 2010.
For more WW check out 5 Minutes for Mom, WW & 7 Clown Circus.

Ian's in the same grade as Andrew, my little one! Its such a big year for them, they are growing so fast, quickly approaching those awkward teenage years. Sighhhh its way to fast for me...
