The first day of school arrived with much triumph at our house yesterday. It was only a half day but I think the kids made the most of it. Here are some morning pics before they headed off.
Sara started the third grade and with that entered a new school. Here favorite part of the first day? Getting to sit on bleachers during the assembly. (They have no bleachers at the K-2 elementary so she's always sat on the floor during assemblies.)
Ashley entered the 2nd grade. She was little bummed because she has the same teacher that Sara had last year. Being a 2nd born child, one year behind my sister as well, I could relate to her feelings. She came home much more hopeful and happy about her teacher though. Her favorite part of the day? Finding out that the "theme" for the year was space and they got to make 2 dimensional space aliens with clay.
Big John or "John, John" as I like to call him, went to kindergarten. He was so very ready--more ready than his mom was. I really miss having him at home with me. He also has a great teacher (they all do--we've hit the teacher jackpot this year!) whom he really likes. His favorite part of the day? Coloring a school bus and making a new friend.
