And They're Off....

There's no way around it - the first day of school is always a jolt to the system. No one sleeps well the night before and the alarm clock seems unusually loud and rude. But the first day is different from all the days that follow, because on the very first morning there is such a sense of anticipation and excitement. An energy that dissipates quickly over the first week. Even I am wide awake at 6:45. That alone makes the day unique, for sure!

Brenna and Daniel are still sharing a room and somehow Michael was able to wake Brenna up this morning without disturbing Daniel. Huge success for day 1! Everyone kept carefully quiet and even now, at 7:55, the younger two are still sleeping. If only we could pull this off every morning!

Off To Second Grade

Last minute advice and hugs from Mom

I can't wait to see her when she gets home this afternoon!

Julie, Hard to imagine that you were up at 6:45 this morning. Hope you got some shut eye before Daniel & Carrie started for the day.

Looking good, Michael & Brenna.
Have a great school year. Looks like you are off to a great start already.

Love, Grandma & Papa Jim
