First Day of School!

Kennady ~ 7th Grade!!! 
I seriously can't believe that she is starting Jr. High...seems like just yesterday she was in Kindergarten ;)  She was SO excited, which made the transition easy! Had a great day meeting up with old friends and making new ones ;) She LOVED every single one of her teachers and classes - School Service (Leadership Class) was the highlight of her day ;) She had tennis after school - she is really enjoying playing tennis!

Keegan ~ 5th Grade

Keegan was ready to get back to school and see his friends! He likes his teacher and class - it's going to be a great year for him :)  His highlight was lunch ;)  He played football both recesses and football after school starts tomorrow!

Kolson ~ 3rd Grade
(Someone snuck into his picture ;)... Kolson had a great day as well...he was a little nervous this morning but ended up having the BEST day :)  His highlight of today was his teacher...Ms. Hoffman! All 3 of our big kids just love her so he was excited to be in her class and he loved every minute of it. We got a detailed rundown of what his school day looked like and it sounds like it was a lot of fun. At recess he played soccer with his friends :)

We love you, Big Kids! So thankful you had an awesome day!!!
Little Sister had a GREAT day as well! I'm so thankful ~ I was worried because she LOVES playing all day with her fun siblings, but she and I had fun :)

We used our pretend microphones and sang most of the morning ;) This is her new thing...she has us sing a song and then she "sings" along with her microphone (hers was a hairbrush, mine was a baseball bat - Keegan started this and now she brings us to her singing spot and we sing away ;)

After playing at home for a while, we ran a few errands, came home for lunch and she took a nap ;)

Our annual picture with Mrs. Ribera...not the same without Sis, but fun to have Kaylee join in! Such a blessing to have Jami shining Jesus' light at Garfield!

Thank You, Jesus, for a great first day back! We give You all the praise :)  Please cover students and teachers everywhere as school starts and may Your Love be shared on campuses everywhere!
