Well, today was a big day around our house...
Where does the time go? Seems like just yesterday, my 6th grader was a fuzzy-headed smiley blond baby. And my 1st grader was a little thing clinging to my leg with all her might--and today, she couldn't get me to leave quick enough!
Sara Beth was SO glad to have some good friends in her class! There's one right there--in their matching purple shirts. Shh, don't tell anyone...but I betcha Sara Beth will wear that purple shirt every single day of the year. (2 days/week) Why do I think so? Because she did it last year. She only wore her pink shirt once last year...and that was after her mother MADE her. After that, her mother got smart, and just washed the shirt twice a week.
Ah, and there's most of Rebecca's 6th grade class. It's a smaller group than last year. But, already Rebecca came home today excited about her class and her teacher. She went to school in the morning worried and nervous, but came home feeling very happy and positive about the year ahead! What an answer to prayer already!
The true test will come tomorrow, as we start the homeschooling part of our year. I'm praying for positive attitudes as two sleepyheads make their way to our dining room table. Oh wait--make that THREE sleepyheads. I forgot about the teacher!
