School is in Session

We survived the first day of school and the first week of school! 

All the kids seem to be enjoying being back with their friends, classmates and teachers.  I am excited to see what this year holds for each of them. 
 Maddi is in 10th grade this year.  She is in FFA and she will play basketball this winter.  She injured her Achilles last spring in track so she is not able to run cross country this fall but will help the team at their meets.
Makenna is in 9th grade.  She is in choir and cross coutry.  She will also play basketball in the fall and track in the spring.  Makenna loves singing the National Anthem at the ballgames.  She also sent in an audition to the NFR to sing the national anthem one night during the NFR.  Voting starts next month! 
Zane is in 8th grade.  School is not his favorite but he works hard and does the best he can with it.  He will play basketball in the winter and run track in the spring.  He is also in FFA.
Dillon is in 7th grade this year.  His first year at the high school/junior high.  I think he likes being there and switching classes and teachers throughout the day.  He is playing football this fall and loves it!  He will also play basketball this winter and run track this spring.  He loves all sports!
Zeke is in 5th grade.  He also is not a fan of school but suffers through it ☺  He is learning to do what he needs to do. He is playing football this fall and he will do basketball this winter.  He loves hanging out with his friends and he has a very fun group of boys to be friends with.
Olivia is in 4th grade.  She loves her new teacher and she is enjoying getting to know a new student in her class.  She loves school and socializing.  She loves getting dressed up everyday and getting to pick out her outfits everyday.  She is going to start volleyball this fall and play basketball this winter. 
I am the new librarian at the elementary school this year along with all my other duties from last year.  I still help out in the office, help teachers with tasks they need to have done and I will do the year book with the students as well.  I will also help coach Olivia's volleyball team and I will coach her basketball team.  I am also my children's number one fan and try to get to as many of their events  as possible. 

We stay busy but we have fun (for the most part).  Life is good (most of the time) and we are blessed by the opportunities and experiences that we have here.
