First Day of School

Because the kids are in two different schools they all had a different first day. Joshua’s was first. Welcome to first grade.

Aria was second with her first day of kindergarten. She had a GREAT first day and couldn’t wait to go back this week. Joshua’s class is directly across the hall from her so he can walk her to class each morning.

Andrew was nervous about starting a new school but we went to the open house and met his teacher. He felt better after that. He’s going to be learning Spanish this year as well as taking choir. In 3rd grade they also start changing classes. He’ll have different teachers for all his core classes. It’s a huge step but we know he’ll do great. And yes, he does have to wear a uniform. He was most annoyed about having to keep his shirt tucked in but we told him he’d get used to it.

love the header! I need to change mine.
The kids look so cute and grown up. Cool that Joshua can walk his sister to class. Andrew looks good in the uniform.
Do you still need me to send you some 5s for Aria?
