Back to School 2011

Welcome back to school McCoy boys!
The boys were excited to start school this year.
They each got the teachers they wanted - no small miracle considering how many teachers they are!

Connor - Grade 4
Mr. S - apparently he doesn't like or appreciate homework for his students, so he is a natural favorite teacher. Connor is thrilled, he shares the same homework philosophy!
It is also rumored, among the students, that he has a whoopie cushion in his desk.
Very cool for 9 year old boys, not so much for their mothers.  
 Gage - Kindergarten
Mrs. J - very cool because her name rhymes with Kick Buttowski.
I'm praying that is not brought up in the classroom or on the playground!
Thankfully Mrs. J has taught for 20 years and has encountered other fabulous children like Gage.
She will be keeled over laughing one moment and pulling out her hair the next.
Please say a prayer for Mrs. J.
Best part of school so far for Gage - riding the bus home.
Biggest let down - "there are sooooo many rules!"
 Tate - Grade 2
Mrs. D - 
Mrs. D does believe in homework, which bodes well with Tate, since that is his favorite thing about school.
Another plus, she is rumored to be the very nicest teacher in the school. She is kind and has high expectations from her students.
Tate is a great fit! He has high expectations of himself and is quite a kind boy himself.
 Look at these handsome boys.
I'm afraid that we won't be paying out the cash Ryan has promised them this year.
He gives them $$ at the end of the school year if they went all year without being kissed.
So far our pocket books have shelled out money to Connor and Tate.
We will see what this year brings.

 This girl won't know what to do without these 3 boys to spoil her and grant her every wish.
She is in for a few changes.
 First day excitement - they were literally running to school.
But when they got to the front door there was a little hesitation.
But they pulled it off and braved the crowds.
I will miss these boys. I love them to pieces.

Best of luck this year.
Work hard and play plenty.

Reasons I don't like this post -
1 - Connor is getting way to big and handsome.
2 - Gage should still be 3 and not going to Kindergarten.
3 - Tate... just too handsome!
4 - McCall, I don't know her at all :(
5 - I miss you and your kids and hate that I never get to see them.

That is all.

I'm so sad I missed your picnic!! I hope you got my message.

Your boys are all handsome and growing so quickly! I can't believe how big McCall is!
