This was during the first week of school.
Beau goes with the flow so well, but still - it's an adjustment going from four siblings to play with, to none.
His look here shows how very happy he is to see them return.
Mason & Eric don't come home on the school bus much these days.
Their days are a little longer yet, with football practice after school.
Game day: Eric in the gray sleeves, Mason standing second tallest (middle).
