I'm very late in getting these posted, but, in following tradition, the kids once again stood in front of the neighbors tree to get their "first day of school" pictures taken. I'll let you guess which one wasn't happy at the moment. But, it is what it is. Unfortunately, this might be the last year of pics in front of the neighbors tree since the tree shows little signs of life. Zero signs of life to be exact. I'm hoping to convince him to just cut it down from 8 feet up, at least until the kids are in college. I'll let you know how that goes.
