First Day of Scool

4th Grade

My baby is in 4th grade. CRAZY! She is definitely full of life, she is a little chatterbox. She loves to play with friends. She is growing up too fast, she thinks we should treat her like a teenager, we are in trouble with that one! We are excited about this year and think she will grow and learn a lot. She's dancing 4 hours a week and also keeps busy with activity days. She loves to play with babies and is always excited when her little cousins come over. She's got a spunky little attitude and I love everything about her!

5th Grade

This guy was not super excited to start school this year, but after a few days decided that it won't be that bad. He has an awesome teacher who S is really enjoying. He's been staying after school a few days a week to help clean up. They recently went on a field trip and he was in charge of finding parent volunteers to go with the class. I think it made him feel very important to have that responsibility. He is really enjoying scouts and has just earned several scout pins. He made a personal goal to run more to stay in shape, and has done a really good job at trying to do this every day. He is always full of energy, and I love him SO much!

7th Grade!

This was M's first year of Jr. High. She was so excited to start. T was very helpful with walking her around the school and showing her where all of her classes were. The first couple days were an adjustment for her, but she is doing great now. She likes most of her classes. She is super dependable and always gets her work done without being asked. She loves to babysit and has gotten quite a few babysitting jobs lately. She is dancing A LOT. She practices 11 hours a week. . But, it's her love. And she's super good at it. I love watching her learn and grow. I love watching her dance. I just love her!

8th Grade

T thinks he's big bad stuff now that he's in 8th grade. He thinks he should get to stay up later than everyone. Only problem is that he doesn't want to get up in the mornings. He keeps busy with homework, scouts, and cross country. The other day they ran 4 1/2 miles for practice. I don't know how he does it. He is super athletic. He is the Deacon's Quorum President and the Sr. Patrol Leader for Scouts. He's a good kid when he wants to be, and I love him:)

I can't believe school has already been in for 4 weeks. CRAZY! I wasn't sure I was ready for it to even start, but we are getting the hang of things. The switch from carefree summer days-late nights-sleeping in to homework-bed times-schedules has been a big adjustment for us this year. But, we are making it all work.
