And they're off!!!
There goes Mercedes, sprinting out of the blocks. Her comment to me? "I can't wait for 8th grade to be over because then I can go to High School!" Slow down, baby birl. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I have a teenager!! She loves her classes and teachers and said she couldn't have picked them better herself. And I'm so grateful that she has a church friend in one of her classes. It sounds like there's going to be some church history discussed and I'm sure it's going to be very skewed. *crossing fingers*
I also can't believe that Beau is in 5th grade. We hung around outside his classroom this morning waiting for Ms. Teacher to open the door. When it was time to say goodbye I asked if it would be embarassing for him to hug me before I left. He quietly said no but gave me the quickest half-hug I think I've ever had. That's okay. I'll take what I can get. He's more than generous with those hugs at home.
This will be an interesting year for Reef. He had the same teacher for Kindergarten and 1st Grade so 2nd Grade will be a brand new experience for us. He was all excitement and smiles this morning when he woke up at 6:30am ready for the first day of school. I hope he starts every day with that same positive attitude. (But maybe just not so early in the morning!)
