First Day Of The 4th Grade

We had a successful morning here at the Starnes casa. Carter dressed in his new Vans, his "California" shirt, and we headed off to school.

First, a picture.

Lainey wanted one.

Meow Meow, too.

He's still letting me take pictures on campus. I'm as shocked as you are!

He got settled at his desk and there was already plenty to do.

With his buddy, Jake.

Sweet boy. It's really cool when you genuinely like your children. I mean, we all love them. But, Carter.....I really like the kind of kid he is.

With another friend and neighbor, Miles.

He goes to an excellent school here in Overland Park.....as always, I never disclose school names, teachers, etc. This has been our favorite so far, though.

A look back.......notice the big change from 1st to 2nd grade.

First Day Of Kindergarten

First Day of the 1st Grade

First Day of the 2nd Grade

First Day of the 3rd Grade

I'm off to the doctor, to run some errands and back home for a big family dinner. Can't wait to hear how his first day went!

Here's to a great school year, peeps.

Loved the walk down memory lane with the links to all of the first day of school. So sweet! He looks so old now - and so much like a Cali boy! Long hair and vans - he will fit in perfectly! Can't wait to hear about his fun day!!Can we come over for the big dinner tonight? I am not really in the mood to cook!

Awwww- he's such a big boy! Have a great first day!

The Lenzers said...

Pam Bowers said...

How does he feel about the school change that is coming his way soon? I hope his first day today was great. Are the other 2 chomping at the bit to join him at school?

Dee Stephens said...

Girlfriend! You have been blogging for some time now!! WOW! What a great way to look back!

The Jones Family said...

Tight shoes Carter! Hope you had a good day today.


P.S. We love you too, Carter!

Kristen said...

He is so handsome... what a big day!!Do you have a house picked out in SD yet?? I'll be curious to see how Carter likes his new school...

and I LOVE that he chose a California shirt for the first day.

Sara said...

Oh my gosh - I had never seen the pics of Carter when he was in Kindergarten! Those are adorable!!!!

Love how you've done pictures outside the house and outside/inside the school each year. He'll love to look back on all of these. You must continue until he graduates from college. Deal with it, Carter.

Hope he had a great day!!

The Soladay Family said...

What a handsome kid. What a great kid.

Side note to Trysten on his comment...T, remember the boys taught you to say "beast"! Remember! It's the new "tight". Love you, T Bob!

Sorry for the post script, Cassie!

Jodee said...

Cute back to school pictures of your handsome little man! Hope he had a great day!

Merry Mack said...

Oh my goodness, I thought tears might leap from my eyes after the kinder picture. What a great kid and sweet boy. Why do they grow up so fast. You are a lucky momma that he let you come in and take pics. I hope Carter has a great year!

Tiffany said...

happy first day!

that is really nice he still lets you take pics at school. my brothers were all 'get away from me!' in like, first grade...

Coco said...

That is HUGE how the 1st to
2nd change is!!!

Love that you documented, I will too!

Lauren W said...

Awesome! I have only met him once, but I was so impressed with him. He really is an awesome kid.

SASS said...

He's grown so much since last year! And his kinder pics? He was just a bebe! What a good kid. You're so right about "liking" and "loving". Carter is easy to like and love :)
Ya did good, Case & Blake!

merrilee said...

I love this kid. He is so kind and respectful(many kids today are not). He will make new friends easily and quickly.....he is such a likable kid!

Brittny said...

he has changed so much!!! it's fun to go back and look at the old photos. i just noticed that you had another post before it and can i say that i am lusting after those temperatures? i would make out with them if i could. is that weird? i know. it definitely is. but anyone living in this humidity would. and is it me or does hot only feel hotter when you have kids? i was fine all day, then picked up the kids and stopped for milk and bread (b/c i forgot before i picked them up) and i swear it was 20 degrees hotter!! and why do they not understand that it is miserable to wait for them to climb out of the buggy "allbymyself!!" and they just have to suck it up and let me do it for them? i'll have to remind her of that when she's a mom.

Looks like our little block head is growing up!

I must comment that this is a little too fast. I'm not ready!

Sarah Caron said...

Awww! Such sweet pictures. I keep tearing up thinking of my son's first day of school -- he's starting kindergarten ... sniff.
