First Day of School

Last Wednesday, the 21st, was the kids' first day of school.  They were all quite excited to go.  We started off the morning with checking out what the Backpack Fairy brought.  Some got new clothes, some got locker stuff and everyone got snacks!

Since I am doing a long term sub for the Health/PE teacher I got to go back to school with them.  We all loaded in the car around 7:20 and headed off to our first day of school!

Maddi started 7th grade this year so she gets to go to the high school.  She is excited to be off in a school on her own doing new things.  She is also excited about getting to run cross country this year.  She has worked all summer getting ready for it and is excited for it to finally be starting!
Makenna is the big dog at school now with all the other 6th graders.  They are top of the food chain and seem to enjoy it!  Makenna was excited to get back to school and her social life and is looking forward to volleyball this fall.
Zane has moved to the "big kid" end of the building too.  He is in 5th grade this year and they get to be at one end of the school with the 6th graders while all the other grades are at the other side of the school.  It's hard to imagine that he is in 5th grade already!  Football is in full swing now and he is enjoying playing that and having Michael be one of the coaches.  I can't wait to watch a game!

Dillon is in 4th grade this year.  He loves seeing his friends every day and playing dodge ball at recess.  He also loves being able to play football again this year.  He is looking forward to his 9th birthday in a few days and even though he is the youngest in his class he does a good job keeping up with everyone!

Zeke is in 2nd grade this year.  It seems like just yesterday he was running around in his diaper and cowboy boots with a binky in his mouth.  Now he is all grown up and keeping up with the big boys!  This year he just gets to watch the others play the sports but he is excited that Michael said he could the water boy for the 5th/6th grade team.  He loves being with the older boys and feeling a part of things.
Princess Olivia is in 1st grade this year.  My baby is no longer a baby!  In fact, it seems like she has grown the most!  She reads and writes and goes to sleepovers and is a total social butterfly!   It is fun to watch her interact with her friends and classmates and watch her grow!  She loves going to school!

Here are all the kids lined up from oldest to youngest. 

 Here they are from last year.  You can tell from where their heads hit the windows on the door that they have grown.  They are still stair steps, but they are taller stair steps!
