Exciting times around our household in the past week. This Saturday, Ellery was baptized.
She was so happy and excited. It was a great day.
And then, today, the kids finally started school! Hallelujah!
The local school district went back to school like two and a half weeks ago. We've all been anxiously waiting for their charter school to start.
First grade for this guy and an empty house for me. Every summer I let his hair grow wild so that I can enjoy his curls. I was all ready to give him his standard back to school haircut until we went to meet his teacher. She went into raptures over his curls. So, they stayed. We'll see how long they last now that he has to face a squirt bottle and a brush every morning.
Fifth grade means she can wear any color polo shirt she wants. Oh, the freedom! She and her friend have coordinated their outfits for tomorrow.
Third grade this year for Ellery. She keeps asking if she can take books from home with her, just in case she has "any extra time".
They all reported back today that they loved their teachers. And they all seem to be still excited to go back tomorrow.
