My kids have been in school a few weeks, and I just realized I never put a first day post!
Patrick began at Seton for 7th grade on a Wednesday. That afternoon, our van decided it needed a new alternator and broke down not even a block from school. Quite the story to tell for the first day. James kept saying, "And then Mommy's car got dead." It was a busy afternoon!
William is a big 2nd grader this year! Big sacraments, and a whole new hallway with the bigger kids at school. He has already found himself a new best friend, and only talks about the girls in his class.
James will be doing preschool at home with Mommy, and we will keep enjoying every second together, and his sweet smile and patience with all our driving and pickups and drop offs.
Emma is a 5th grader this year, almost as tall as Mommy. She is almost too tall to be wearing a jumper, and her feet are bigger than mine. I have to keep wearing some shoes with a little heel!
My kids at 2 schools means that some of them get to catch up on the news and fun of the others that they miss.
God bless all the teachers, students and the parents who make so many sacrifices to get to this point every year. We love you kids, so much. Please, Lord, guide their steps, and keep them with you all year.
