Yep...that's what I told him...He is gonna rule the school! LOL
I have a super confident 8 (almost 9 year old) who just started 3rd grade. 
He picked out all of his own school clothes, and requested that I take pics of him in all of his new outfits!
OMG!  This is a boy...and he WANTS me to take pictures??? 
Of COURSE I jumped at that chance! LOL.
So, here is a layout using Jillibean Soup and some Really Reasonable Ribbon...

Now, I only used a couple of the pics that I took, so I could play along with the Jillibean sketch challenge for August...
I actually took quite a few photos of this crazy kid!
He told me this morning,  "Mom...I bet I am the cutest kid in 3rd grade.  I mean...ALL the girls think I am."
Seriously??? He is only in 3rd grade!  Lord Help me!!!!! :) :) :)

Here is the Jillibean Sketch that I used:

...And it is about school starting because "Back to School" marks the end of Summer for millions of kids every year...and There is an "End of Summer" blog hop going on over at Really Reasonable Ribbon this weekend!  Head on over and play along!  There is a HUGE prize to be won!

Well, I am off to a "Back to School" parade at my little ones' elementary.
Remember how sad I was back in June when school ended 
and we were re-zoned to a new school?
Well, it seems I worried for nothing. 
We do miss the wonderful people at our old school, BUT, there are some FANTASTIC people at the new school as well. 
And, this parade thing...AWESOME! 
(I am as excited about it as the kids are!)
I will have pics to share from the first week of school soon. ;)
Till then, Have a FANTABULOUS weekend!
