The kids started school last Tuesday and they are loving their teachers. Isaac is in the third grade and has Mrs. Bingham for his teacher.
Abbie started first grade and has Mrs. Imler for her teacher.
Kaden has Mrs. Jordan and is starting Kindergarten. We were about five minutes later than I planned on leaving because I wanted to take a few pictures.....classic, right? You have to have first day of school pictures!!
We have to park across the street on the road because everyone else was taking their kids on the first day of school also so I get all of the kids out of the car and just need to pick-up Brooklyn out of her carseat so we could fight the crowds and find the kids classrooms. I pick her up and she has a HUGE poopy diaper. Luckily, not on any of the clothes, (yet!!) and so I hurry to the passenger seat(away from the road) and hurry to change her diaper. We got her cleaned up without having to change her clothes and we were finally ready to find the kids classrooms. I think Abbie was the last one to her class (not late, though) because the third grade hall (we dropped off Isaac first) was before the first grade hall, we had to take pictures in front of the house before we left and the poopy diaper incident. Needless to say, it was a very busy morning!!
The kids all ready for their first day of school.
Isaac finding his locker. He is now number twenty which is different from last year when he was number twenty-three and wrote it on EVERYTHING. So, I guess I should get used to seeing his name and the number twenty by it for the next year.
Putting his book bag away.
Finding his seat.
Abbie at her desk. She has already made new friends. She really likes her teacher.
One interesting thing is that Abbie is now requesting different hair styles. The first day of school I (Mom) chose the hair down, curled under and a flower to match her blouse. No big deal, right? The next day started with a request. SHE asked for a side pony tail with ringlets. (The first day it happened I just shrugged and did the hair style) By the next day she was asking for a bun with her hair wound around it and a white curly-ribbon bow. That evening we took baths and she asked to have her hair put in curlers(she wanted curly hair for the final day of school that week and she NEVER asks for curlers to sleep in). We had curly hair with a purple flower headband. This is the first time ever that she has requested hair styles. Last year (kindergarten) she would beg me for just a little hair barrett in the front of her hair to keep her hair out of her eyes (anything simple) which is a huge contrast from this year where I've already had hair style requests!! My little girl is growing up!
Abbie's name on her desk!
We went to Kindergarten (later that morning) to meet the teacher and get the low-down on what will go on in Kindergarten. Kaden and I happened to be the first one there (we made sure to leave a little early because we didn't want to be late if we had another poopy diaper incident) so we got to meet his teacher and talk with her for a few minutes before everyone else came. Kaden just LOVES his teacher!!
Kaden LOVES his kindergarten teacher. He tells me so everyday how nice she is!! I am SO glad he likes her...and I do too...I think she will be great for Kaden, my sweet little boy!
Congratulations on completing your first week of school!! You guys will do GREAT this year!! Love ya and miss ya during the day!! (thank goodness Kaden only goes half day, I miss you guys!)
