First Day of School

The first day of school this year was a whirlwind with new schedules, new schools, new teachers, and new clothes.

Dallin, the beaming first grader.
Elizabeth, the proud second grader, who is now at the "BIG" intermediate school.
And Anna, our woman-in-the-making, middle school student.

They were nervous and I have to admit I felt every bit as anxious as they did! Poor Audrey was devastated that they left her behind! (Did you notice her in the picture with Elizabeth, peeking through the , oh my, very hand printed, window...so sad). I tried to appease her broken heart with promises of preschool starting in October, but that did not seem to suffice.

Anna kept telling me that she would be okay if she could just make it through the first hour.
(I think the thought of getting to leave an hour and a half early to sneak off to a Killers concert is what really made the first day okay! And Dallin and Elizabeth were soothed with the idea of having a sleep over at Grandma and Grandpa's!)

Man, I am a cool mom!

Wow, how was Annas first day at middle school? Thats crazy!
Im sure they were all fine though. Dana was sad that she couldnt go to "school" today because she was sick.
Im going to be nervous of Dana going anywhere. :)
