Studio Calico...Take Flight LO

Finally got some down time to actually sit down and do a layout!
School just started for us this past Monday and I have to say that
Jake actually enjoyed his first week of 4th grade...
I know the big 4th grader!!!
I cannot believe it!
So I took some pics from the first day and for whatever reason
I LOVED this pic of him...
he's not even looking at the camera but he was just
SO determined to walk by himself to school that day...
I had to "follow him"....
So this is what I came up with using Studio Calico's August kit.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
