First Day of School!!

Kenzie is an 8th grader.
She got up early and looked darling.
We took her picture and she was out the door...
to return a few minutes later shouting...
"I missed the bus!"
Aaron drove her to the next bus stop
so she could enter the school with a friend.
She had a great day!!
She is so easy.
Mackay panicked all night and all morning.
He didn't get up early (which is not normal for him).
He cried and whined - scared to start the 3rd grade.
He finally got dressed, ate, and said prayers.
We began walking him to the bus stop.
Half way up the bus path, he told us
"it was okay if we didn't want to come to the bus stop,
he was okay now."
What? Are we embarrassing???
He too had a great day.
He has Miss Jacobs.
He has had homework every night
as well as Football Practice.
It is going to be a long few months.
Hayden met his teacher, Mrs. Gaither, on Monday.
He was thrilled.
I filled out paper work while she tested some of his skills.
She would explain that she wanted him to ...
tell her the names of the letters.
She'd ask if he had any questions.
He would say no.
She would set the timer and say "Begin"
only to have Hayden say ...
"so, you want me to say the names of all the letters?"
"Yes, the names."
She would restart the timer and say "Begin."
They repeated this routine with the
letter sounds, numbers, and site words.
He didn't have any questions until the timer was set -
and then he had a few.
I was cracking up at the mother's table.
Can't wait to take him Monday morning.
I am even more excited to send him
on the BUS on Tuesday.
Should be interesting!!
