1st Day of School

Today was the first day of school for my little monkeys! We sent K off this morning to start second grade. She'll be having team teachers this year. K is pretty easy going. I took the kids over to the elementary school yesterday and had K meet her teacher, T had to wait until today. We had family home evening last night on the priesthood and then gave the kids a father's blessing. K said it made her feel better after that, she wasn't so nervous. T, on the other hand, was rearing to go as soon as the blessing was over and rather frustrated that he first had to go to bed for the night before heading off to school the next morning.
T is in afternoon kindergarten. Today I went with him to meet his teacher, go over the class procedures and fill out paperwork. T got up at 6:00am this morning very antsy! This is the very first day of school for him and he was super excited! He seemed pretty bummed out when he couldn't stay at school this morning when we dropped off K. He'll start having normal school days starting tomorrow. I think he'll love it when things really get going.

They both seemed to enjoy walking to school, it was before the real heat comes in the morning so it was a nice walk. The older kids rode their scooters while the little ones rode in the stroller. I think I'll get plenty of exercise pushing those two all year.

It must be very exciting to have 2 in school now! They both look happy on their first day of school. I can't believe Katelyn is in 2nd grade!
