Monday morning dawned bright and early. We had dreaded this day all summer long, simply because summer is always so magical. No alarm clocks. No rushing around like maniacs. No sports. Just lots of chilling in the pool and at the lake. SO great! But alas, all good things must come to an end.
|Both kids woke up with their alarms and were excited to start a new year at Hunt.|
Yep! That's all 5 fingers that Jackson is holding up. 5th and 2nd grade. My gosh, their elementary career is zooming by.
|Memaw came over to stay with sleeping Cami--thank goodness!|
|Daddy and I loaded up the kids in his truck and were out the door, even a few minutes ahead of schedule.|
|In Jackson's previous 5 years at Hunt, we have never made it to school in time to get the coveted First Day photo by the school sign. We were on it, this year, though!|
|We were meeting lots of 5th graders at the sign. So many of them showed up!|
|Our first stop after getting inside was the second grade. Miss Lila had lots of things to put in her locker, including photos, a mirror, a pencil holder and sticky notes. The shelf didn't leave any room for her backpack, so it didn't make the cut.|
|We said good morning to Mrs. Tillery...|
|Lila's friends arrived and then we were off to fifth grade.|
|By the time we made it to Mrs. Flaherty's class, it was almost full. It's her last year of teaching and we are so glad that Jackson gets to have her for homeroom and math.|
|He's pumped that he's got some good buddies with him in class. |
They are all so happy to finally be the oldest at school.
|Meanwhile, over at Schell, Miss Madison was having a great morning, too. She loves her new teacher and was super excited to see her sweet friend Jazlin, as she walked into the room.|
|We made it out the door a little after the bell rang and then came home to Miss Cameron Nicole. She was all about helping me bake a cake that morning. After we had baked and decorated the first day of school cake, she went to visit Gigi.|
|And I went to celebrate with some friends at Taco Diner! |
Cheers to the kids being back in school and to less arguments to referee all day!
|These two made it home on the bus right on time...|
|and we all enjoyed learning about everyone's first day as we ate some cake.|
|But wait, there's more! The fifth graders were meeting up at Baskin Robbins, so we joined them. |
The fun never ends!
Safe to say, they loved their first day of school. And I did, too!
It's going to be a fantastic year.
