First Day of School

Today was the first day of school!! Hooray!

Rand was so excited and was up and getting dressed and ready right away. Today was his first day of Kindergarten. We walked him into his class. We could tell he was just a little bit nervous but quickly joined right in. He really enjoyed the story they read today and just felt happy overall. He already got 2 stars - one for laying down quietly and one for sitting properly. And my favorite report was that he made 2 1/2 friends (Alex only sometimes wanted to play).

This was Rand at about 4 pm - the good day wore him out!

Rhianna started 3rd grade and said it was awesome. I got a very detailed report of everything she did today. She is happy to finally have a desk (not just a table for several kids as she has had all the other years) so she has more elbow room and leg room. They learned a fun song, went running (even in the super hot weather), started learning about their daily work, played games - just had a good day.

We are happy they both had such a great start. Seth and I had a good day too - we danced and played pretend and went to the library. I think he did miss them a little and so he drew pictures for them. But we will have a good year at home too. One of our next big challenges is potty training. Steve will start teaching his first PhD Seminar next Monday. Have a good school year!

I am glad that they had a great day at school. I am hoping mine will go as smoothly next week.

Those are great pictures. I remember loving going back to school in grade school. I am glad your kids were excited and had a good time.

I love Rhianna and Rand's new backpacks! And I love Seth's funny smiles!
