Yet again, it's time for me to share the same silly old cliches about how I can't believe the summer went by so quickly, and how it amazes me that my kids are old enough to be going to the grades they're going to, and how time passes too swiftly....
You know the drill.
But it really DOES pass too swiftly.
Take these pictures as proof.
Because she's new to our school district, I was a little nervous (the unknown always makes us a little nervous, doesn't it?), but the moment we walked into her adorable classroom for Meet the Teacher night, I knew Clark would love her. Dr. Seuss-themed decorations, a genuinely warm, happy smile, and gerbils cinched the deal. He's had a blast this week!
Maggie headed into kindergarten, and she has the same teacher that Jack had when he was in kindergarten!
This is her "silly" pose--she's sticking her tongue out. LolAlso, in case you were wondering, yes, everything she is wearing has sparkles on it. Sparkly shoes, sparkly pants, sparkly shirt, sparkly backpack, and sparkly fingernails.
But do not be fooled--even though I have three children in school, I'm not bored. For one thing, my brother, Noah, is visiting before he heads off to China to teach English for several months:
And yes, I'm jealous that he'll be over close to my neck of the woods, speaking Mandarin.
As for me, Calvin does plenty to make sure that I'm not bored during the day. Why, just yesterday, while I was playing through the "Dear Evan Hansen" sheet music I just got (EEEEEK!), he decided that both he and my bathroom needed a make-over.
Hooray for back-to-school!
