1st Day of School

Just a random 4.25 x 4.25 card made a few weeks ago. Nothing special. I always need thank you cards, so when my mojo is on hiatus, I go with what's comfy!
All supplies PTI except small piece of cotton crocheted lace (MM).
So today was the first day of school for my boys. Stickyfingers(age 4) was so excited to be entering Kindergarten and riding a school bus! We are trying a new school this year (private catholic) so Crumbgrabber (age 10) was excited too, albeit a bit nervous about making new friends.
Know what I love the most about this new school? UNIFORMS!!!! No more arguing about weather or not this is a "school shirt" and "No, you may not wear holey-kneed jeans to school!" Everyday it's navy dockers and white polos with the school logo on them. Period. Ahhhhh, one less thing to yell about in the early mornings. *grin*

Thanks for stopping by today friends, I'm off to start dinner...(home made veggie burgers on the grill, broccoli & cauliflower au gratin, green leafy salad, and whole wheat kaiser rolls with home canned pickles!)

Your card is great. But those boys? Beautiful kids. They look so sharp in their school uniforms. I have to have that holy knee jean talk with y 9-year old often!
I'm assuming those aren't their real names?LOL

First, I'm coming to your house for dinner! Second, HOW CUTE are those boys!? Love the big grins :-) And last but not least - that card is fantastic - what do you mean no mojo?

What CUTIE pies!!! They've sure grown since the last pics I've seen. And... your dinner sounds YUMM-O (and I'm not even a vegetarian!)

Heh. crumbgrabber and stickyfingers look so unlike their names with their uniforms on! ;-) Love the simplicity of the card.

Been loving that you are using so much PTI! Another great card. Your boys are growing up so beautifully! Very cute in their uniforms!

Your boys are adorable!! (Although they probably don't want to hear that!) Hope they had a great first day at school.

I love your card--that font is so beautiful!!

Your boys are gorgeous! The bus driver looks annoyed, was she? Love your card too, BTW

Wonderful pictures of the boys! I love the "jumping for joy" shot! Crumbgrabber looks so grown up! I have the clothing talk with my boys every once in a while. Most of the time it is "NO! You CANNOT go play in the mud with your school clothes on! Go change!" Lol!

Love the card! Thank you cards are always the best things to have around. It looks very vintage. Almost like it was tucked in the bottom of a button and notions box for a few decades without being disturbed (although in your house that would be unheard of!). It is truly lovely.

Fantastic card! I love the color combination that you used - very chic.

Your boys are quite the cuties! I hope they like school!
