First Day of School (Part 2)

Today was Kassidy's first day of school. She didn't go yesterday because her middle school was only open for the 6th graders. This gives them a chance to tour the school, get used to the routine and enjoy a day of middle school without the big, mean 7th and 8th graders there. ;) NEXT year I'll have Kassidy and Kameron both in middle school but they won't start on the same day. Weird! LOL Anyway, here are a few pictures from this morning...

 My 7th grader! 



Yesterday went well for the other 3!! Kameron made some new friends and is loving having a male teacher this year. He's fabulous from what I hear. Everyone who knows him says, "LUCKY!" when I say that he's Kam's teacher! haha That's always nice to hear! :) Kam's closest friends aren't in his class this year which is a bummer, but we'll make sure they see each other outside of school. Kam is very excited about being at the top of the food chain this year and ruling the school!! I think he's going to have such a great year! :)

Kennedy had a good day too. She made a new friend named Emma and was very excited about her salad that she ate for lunch! haha Her teacher called me last night to tell me about her day and ask some questions that she wasn't clear on. She's SO excited to have Kenn in her class. She has an older son with special needs so she "gets it". :) Kennedy had a horrible colitis attack in the middle of the night and I almost thought I would have to keep her home today but she seemed to bounce back before school and really wanted to go, so I let her... hopefully she'll make it through her day today.

Keeghan LOVED his first day of Kindergarten! He made 2 friends (and ONLY 2 friends! LOL) and one of them was a cute little blonde girl... he seems to find one everywhere he goes! ;) He went to music class and Spanish but did NOT like Spanish because he said, "I don't need to know that!" LOL I told him that when he grows up and becomes a fireman that Spanish will be VERY important to know because he might have to help people who only speak Spanish and he'll have to be able to talk to them. He thought about that for a minute and said, "Well... I don't need to know it when I'm a kid!" HA! I tried to teach him some fun phrases in Spanish but he wasn't having it. Since he has to take that class every year, hopefully he'll get over that. ;) He loved the whole experience of buying his lunch, and of course he loved recess. :) He has today off (Kindergarten has a staggered start) so we are enjoying some one-on-one time today.

Kassidy is taking the basic 7th grade classes this year as well as Spanish (but she chose to take it! LOL) and PE and then next semester she takes beginning guitar. She's pretty excited about that and so is daddy! He'll be home just in time to help her learn all her cords and restring his guitar for her to use. :) It sounds like she got some pretty good teachers this year as well. She ran into an 8th grader at orientation and when she mentioned some of her teachers, the 8th grader said, "OH you'll LOVE them!" Again, nice to hear!!

Anyway, I'm going to go jump in the shower... I promised a certain little boy some chocolate cake for lunch and then I have to go to the school to do a project with the Kindergarten class. Tomorrow I'm meeting with the technology teacher to start on a PTA project. Let the school year begin! :o)

Our schools do the day when only 6th graders come too! I love that b/c it gives them a day to see everything w/o a school for of kids. Taylor didn't get any classes with her best friend and she was bummed :( I told that is what happens when you have honors classes! LOL Glad the 3 youngest ones all had a good day/I hope Kassidy had a good day.

Keegan is too funny about not wanting to learn Spanish! I was wondering if Frank speaks Spanish? I think I recall you saying that he is from Mexico? Sorry if I'm wrong about that! My hubby is Dominican and bilingual. We are now trying to teach our little guy Spanish at home. It helps that I minored on Spanish in college, because i didnt grow up biligual like my hubby. We repeat everything in both languages and he is too funny because he will switch up responding to us in either English or Spanish. They are like sponges when they are young!

Kassidy looks beautiful and grown up! Her hair is getting so long again! Love it! Hope she had a wonderful first day! Glad to hear the others all had happy first days as well! How's Kellsey doing with school? Praying especially for her since I know you have had some reservations about safety for her. (((BIG HUGS)))!!
