I fully enjoyed my summer of reading and blogging...even on the days when the blogging world was quiet. I knew as soon as school was back in session that my blogging/reading would take a hit, and usually a hard one at that.
And, well, it has.
I probably missed everyone else's back to school photos, but I'm a fan and full fledged believer of the saying,
"Better late than never" :)
Without further adieu...
Our Back to School Photo for this year:
I love this photo...except for the fact that for the last 2 years another member of my family has "left" the picture. Our two older girls graduated in 2011 and 2012, so now only the youngest and of course Layla are in the annual photo.
Layla rides with me every morning to drop the youngest off. She has learned not to bark at the teachers in the drop off line and to appreciate the little children who appreciate seeing her every morning. The youngest gives her a pat on her head through her window to say good-bye when it's her turn to get out of the car, and Layla keeps her eyes on "her girl" until she's safely inside the building.
As we pull away from the school, Layla still keeps her eyes on the crowd and the front door of the building until she can no longer see it and then looks at me for reassurance that we will return to get "our girl" at the end of the day :)
How's that for loyalty, protectiveness, and intelligence?
