FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!


Everyone had a wonderful first day of school today.  The morning started at 5:00 am and hasn't slowed down until now.  Surprisingly, the kiddos all woke up happy and we got out the door on time!  I did, however, discover that it takes a full 30 minutes to pack four lunches, so I made them ahead of time tonight for tomorrow.  Live and learn, right?!  I think it may take a week or two, but we will eventually establish a routine!  

All three of the kids had great stories to tell about their day with no complaints.  I think they are all excited to get up tomorrow and do it all over again!

My first day of work was kind of crazy, but fun.  I help teach the two year old class at Play Learn(FBC Fayetteville) and love it!  All the children we have in our class are so adorable.  I just love to scoop them up and love on them.  I really miss that age!  Anyway, we did have one child with a very strong will and a set of lungs!  I'm hoping tomorrow will be a little bit better, but for the most part was great! 

Okay, I told you in the previous post that I would be the crazy mom taking tons of pictures, and it was so true today!  I couldn't help it!  I kept telling myself to capture every possible opportunity for a picture so we would always remember.  So... here they are!

I warned you!  I love to take pictures, but aren't you glad I did?!!  We are looking forward to a wonderful year full of learning and having lots of fun!

I love the pictures. Right now it seems like it will be forever before LJ is off on his first day of school, but I know it will be here before I know it.

Glad you're liking your job. You and Barbara will have lots of stories to swap next time we're together!

Mrs. Amy is one of my good friends. I went to the U of A with her and we taught together at Harp Elementary. She's a wonderful teacher. I think you will love her!
