The kids and I started school today, and Phil starts on Wed. We don't like knowing the summer has come to an end but all were looking forward to starting back up again. We like having the routine of things and structure but going back to school makes our evening very busy with homework, eating, football/soccer practice and other evening activities.
Here are a few pictures that captured our morning.
One going to middle school. Olivia was so excited to begin her new school. She had a hard time falling asleep last night and was up bright and early to get ready. The bus comes at 7:30am so no time to sleep in anymore. My baby is growing up too fast:(
4th Grader-loves that most of his buddies are in his class this year. Played 4 square at recess and shares a locker with a new student. Andrew sits with a group of other students and their team had the most positive reinforcement points at the end of the day.
It has been a LONG year for this day for Clare. She has been looking forward this day for about a year. Unfortunately she missed the cut off to go to school last year by 7 days. She wants to be just like her BIG brother and sister and go to school just like them. Today was THE DAY!!!! I asked her what she wanted to wear last night and she wanted to wear a shirt that has her school name on it. Clare officially goes to TR Elementary. She can't wait to meet new friends and LOVES her teacher.
Can't forget about Ruthie, she started at new daycare provider. We took Ruthie to her new in-home daycare a few weeks ago, then again last week. She cries when she has to leave me, which is hard. Today, she had to go all day. She cried a little, but did great throughout the day. She ate well and took her two naps without fighting it. Ruthie was excited to see me and chatted the whole way home. Just precious.
