First Day of School!

What can I say? I'm just not one of those moms that cry when school starts. We've had a great summer and the kids were just as ready for school to start as I was. So far they've loved it. Hailey is in middle school this year and really likes it. She can't quite figure out her locker yet, but when she does it will be the best decorated locker in all of 5th grade. She's had lots of fun buying magnents and a white board and other stuff to make it snazzy so hopefully she'll be able to open it by herself soon! :) She really likes her teacher and has made new friends already.

Sydni is in 4th grade this year and I really can't believe it. She also likes her teacher and has friends in her class so she is loving it. Since the south elementary combined with us this year she gets to see lots of friends and cousins she hasn't gone to school with before so she is enjoying that.
Jonah started 1st grade this year. I know his teacher is awesome because the girls had her. He has lots of friends in his class too. Mrs. Fowles said he is a good reader and writer. She told him to practice by writing letters to Grandpa Gary. We'll see. I can't get him to write anything. But I am glad he likes to read.


Last but not least....Danny is FINALLY a "school kid" Thats what he calls himself! He is probably the most excited kid I've ever had. It doesn't take much to make him happy (or mad) but going to school is definately at the top! He has only gone one day so far but loved it. I hope he listens to his teacher better than he listens to me!!!

I can't believe they're all in school. Who would have thought this day would ever come?! Luckily I have Max to keep my company (or take a nap with)
