I'm not sure what I find more upsetting/shocking. That he's starting this jr year or that there were ONLY five pairs of shoes in that hallway. ;^)

I can't believe we've reached Jr. year! May the "fun" of the first two years decrease a little and the future have it's place in the line-up somewhere!

Summer has flown by in a flash and now school again! I hope Brian has a fun and successful year. :D

Here's to another great year for Brian! Hannah has orientation next week but classes don't start until after Labor Day. And of course she's not leaving this time so it all feels very different.
