First day of school 2011

Avery started her year with a half day yesterday. She is starting out with a substitute because her teacher has had some recent medical issues. She is already loving fifth grade!

Trey started back to middle school and is in the seventh grade! He did find his locker when we picked up his schedule but was not interested in going the other day to find all his classrooms. He said "i'll find em" much different than last year when we walked room to room making sure he knew where he would go.

Ethan started half day kindergarten this year. He has been practicing his alphabet song constantly the last couple of days and was certain he was going to have to get up in front of the class and sing it by himself. I assured him that wouldn't be the case! I got a little emotional praying with him last night, can't believe my years of having him home all the time are over! He is going to love kindergarten, i know it!

all ready to go! it wasn't the smoothest start to the school year. i had a rough time getting kids moving. trey woke up all congested and so had to get him to take a pill (he does not take pills!!) 15 minutes later with avery's help he got it down. :)

Raegan woke up at 6 am and was whining and pulling at me while i was trying to get the others moving. I showered, i never usually shower before running the kids!

But, we made it and 2 out of the 3 actually brushed their teeth!

Captain America won out for the superhero to be worn!

Trey- 7th grade!

Avery and her bff before school this morning

Avery on her first day...yesterday. there was no one in the classroom so i snapped one quick!

Ethan's room!

Ethan and his bud Will. He told me this morning "mommy, i will just follow Will" i am so glad that he has a good bud that he is starting this year with!!

his teacher said he could get his colors out and sit down and color, so he got a pencil out went and sharpened it and started coloring with his pencil ;)

i think his way of handling his nervousness was just to color color color!

i think raegan wanted to stay

but obviously she is not ready for school. The early morning was a bit much for her, we came home and she said "i'm going to go to sleep now"...and she curled up on the couch and did just that!

Trey, Avery and Ethan...hope you have a fantastic school year!

Happy school year! I'm so sad your kids are getting so big. Trey seriously looks like a grown-up. Time flies!
