First Day of School

Last Tuesday marked the first day of school for Austen (4th grade) and Peyton (1st grade). They both were excited to go -  see their friends and meet their new teachers (Mrs. Awick for Austen and Mrs. Turrentine for Peyton).

Fourth grade was by far my favorite year of elementary school. I had the best teacher and from what I've heard 4th grade at Austen's school doesn't disappoint either. The teachers are supposed to be the strongest, and the year, while hard, is a huge growing and learning year.

Peyton on the other hand didn't get the teacher she wanted. She actually got the same teacher Austen had for first grade. She wasn't too disappointed though when she found out that a few of her good friends are also in class with her.  She then admitted she was just nervous about having Mrs. Turrentine because she has been calling her Clementine for the past 2 years and was worried that she may call her that in class. I don't think so, P, but I will tell you that if you do that then you're definitely probably going to get a yellow light from Mrs. Turrentine!

Anyway, now into our second week of school, the kids still enjoy going. Peyton loves having lunch at school now and going the full day. She was more than ready. In fact, I think the only thing Peyton doesn't love about school is doing homework!

I think it's going to be a great year for both of them too. I hope they keep making new friends, grow as students and be kind to everyone.

 Off and running to the door. Note Austen way ahead - he basically left us to get to his door and see his friends. 

Last shot together as we yelled for Austen to come back!

She even has her own locker this year!
