Middle & 4th!

Today is the first day of school for my girls. Maverick starts kinder in ten days (counting down).

Mallory is starting fourth grade today, and she is not thrilled with having to tuck in, she didn't get the teacher she had hoped for, and she has no friends in her class. On a positive note though, she met her new teacher Friday and thinks she is super nice. She also knows several kids in her new class, so she will have many opportunities to make new friends.

Sydney is starting Crane Middle School today. She was up bright and early because school begins just a hair after 7:00. She was pretty excited when she left. She knows her way around the school pretty well and has her grandma and Kay-Lanie around for support. Bob and I are the nervous ones. She seemed fine.

I start back tomorrow. I will be working Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Wednesday afternoons at Rancho. I'll be working with migrant kids (4th-6th) and running the new lunch detention program. I am as excited as my girls. I love the first day. It's around the thirtieth day that you wonder what you signed up for. My mom started her 31st year today. We talked this morning. Nothing quite like the first day back, even after so many years.

I better go. It's time to lay out my outfit for tomorrow.

Aww, all my girls are growing up! I hope they have fun today and I am extremely nervous for Sydney as well. Junior high girls can be so mean! I will have to call this afternoon and get the updates on how everything went.

PS their hair looks good, you did well!

How are they're backpacks already heavy and BIGGER than them?!?!? It's hard to be a scholar!

I can't believe the summer is gone- that went by way too fast!

Beautiful girls!
Where is Maverick going for Kindergarten? Does he miss the deadline for Mesquite?
Good luck to you with your new school year! lunch detention- is that when you get to deal with the makers of trouble during lunch time? bless you!

That pile of hair in the previous post is something else!
