This year the first day of school was perhaps even harder than last year. New schools (again) for everyone. More nervousness, trepidation, and excitement. All from me.
Ha! Not all from me, but most of it.
Matthew started Jr. high at a school where he hardly knows a soul. I can't believe I have a 7th grader! He seems even more grown up now than during the summer.
Gracie's a 5th grader. It was a rough first few weeks, being the only new girl in her grade. Tears were shed, discussions were held about going back to the old school but she stuck it out. She's settling in nicely now. Just got elected class representative for student council. Settling in quite nicely it would seem.
Owen's a big ol' second grader now. Owen's a cool cat, makes lots of friends wherever he goes and charms the pants off his teachers. No worries here.
My little Rexy started kindergarten this year, my first full day-er to date. It was hard on me but he was so excited and he loves school. It helps that he has two siblings at the school with him. It's so fun to see the excitement of learning through his eyes.
Poor little Colby, once he saw all the big kids go off to school he suddenly decided he wanted to go too. He didn't want to leave after we took them all to their classes. Poor kid, nobody tell him he's got three years to go...
As I said, he was pretty sad he doesn't get to go...
This was the only picture I took of Leelee on the first day of school. At this point in her life she was still sleeping most of the time. :)
