The first day of school is always a fun day! There are of course bits of nervousness (for both the children and the mommy) and moments that are truly surreal. But folks - I now have two children in Elementary School. Gabriella joined the ranks at Weatherford Elementary this year as our newest Eagle. She is a school-lover and Kindergarten has been no exception. While she does lament at how long the days are (7:45am-2:45pm), she does enjoy being there!
Oliver is in 2nd grade this year. The desks are taller, the toys in the classroom fewer, and the learning more advanced. He's growing up. I know this, yet am still surprised when I see things that manifest it so clearly. He was proud to lead his sister through his well known and well loved school. He has been a great asset to have in getting her acclimated to a new place as well as a great comfort to his mother as she sends another baby into a big school (and home on the bus!!!)
We are so thankful for our school and it's staff. We have had so many great experiences there and know that this year will not be any different.
Here are some shots from that first morning!
Finishing breakfast (it's early folks...)
Gabriella - First Day of Kindergarten
Oliver - First Day of 2nd Grade
Melia - Usual Day of Silliness
Daddy takes the kids to school each morning on his way to work. They got to ride in Daddy's 3 day-old car!
We are so thankful for you two! Your teachable and obedient natures plus your friendliness will help you both go far in your days at Weatherford!
