Back To School in Arkansas

This year is special for the Jones Family, because Payton will be turning 5 and is starting school! Five down and 2 to go! Whoohoo!Payton is very excited to attend school with her big sisters, Carson and Camryn. Carson is in the 4th grade and Camryn is in the 3rd. Payton couldn't wait to get her school supplies and backpack! Oh, and to get dolled up like her sisters.

Payton's older sisters spent an evening pampering Payton by rolling her hair in sponge rollers. Remember those? They also painted her nails and toes! She loved it. The next day, Payton had the chance to meet her teacher before school actually started. She has Mrs. Lawrence. I think we are going to like her.

Getting the kids to bed early, while it was still light out was a challenge. Sad to say we didn't make it. Getting the kids up early to get ready with a newborn was even more so challenging. Glad to say we made it and were on time! I took some pictures of Payton being pampered, her day getting ready to meet her teacher and the girls leaving for the first day of school. There will be one picture of Emerson, who is 2, slightly naked. Well, more than naked, as she is only in a diaper. Hey, I could only managed to do so much that morning. Her feelings were hurt that she was not getting her picture taken, so to sooth her, I took a picture of her in her diaper. Later that day, I took a picture of her in a dress with her hair done...just to prove that I do dress her!

Oh and by the way, Payton is very head strong and self-assured. She has turned a ticket and gone off green to yellow, which is a verbal warning, 4 out of the 6 days! She loves to run her mouth! We are working on that and are proud to report, that after several days of not playing, she is back on green.
