Back to School

Here we are! Another year of school! Alyssa started fifth grade, Nathan started third grade, and Savannah started 2nd grade. Arya and Alanna were fine with sending them off to school and having only each other to play with! The kids were all a little nervous about going to school on the first day. They know their teachers; they had them last year for Math. The nervousness comes from wondering what their teacher for math will be like this year! They all go to the next grade up for Math. For Alyssa in particular this is scary because she is going to 'Middle School Math!" She has to go 'upstairs' and that is scary, I guess. But they all did great, they love their teachers, and they are so excited to go back on Thursday.
A tradition we have that we started on Alyssa's first day of kindergarten, is that we always go over to Baskin Robbins on the first day of school. We sit and talk about their day and have ice cream. Each year we do this, the image that always comes into my mind is Alyssa's first day of kindergarten. She was wearing the cutest little overall outfit. I remember her getting chocolate all over her face. Such precious memories!

Above: The two pictures on top are of Alyssa's first day of kindergarten. She was all smiles until we got her inside the school!
The next photo on the left is Nathan's first day of kindergarten. He is so cute, but it is Savannah that cracks me up in that photo. She was so mad she couldn't go with them to school. I LOVE that photo of her. The photo on the right is of Savannah's first day of kindergarten. She is just beaming! "Finally my turn!"
