Today was our first day of school for the 2014-2015 year!
And what a year it will be, not only is Sydney now in the 2nd grade but AUDREY is joining us at the table for preschool!
Lets take a moment to reminiscence about my babies, shell we?
Aren’t they cute? Well, they grew up into these beautiful young ladies!Today went extremely well! I’ve always had great luck when it comes to the first day of school, they leave me feeling excited and ready for the new school year! Unfortunately, there are days which make me doubt my decisions, my abilities, and my sanity. So it’s good to blog about those days that are awesome, and try to forget about the bad 😉
I’ve been worried, nervous, excited, and very anxious about how school was going to work this year. Not only this Audrey’s first year in “official” school, but in February I’ll be nursing a baby while I teach math (and other subjects, of course!) While this was a breeze with master-champion-nurser Zachary, I was only teaching Sydney and preschool only took 30 minutes.
Oh, and Sydney is very good at sitting still. She’s extremely patient.
I love it when I pass down traits that I do not actually posses. It’s a great thing.
This year we have preschool with the girl who shares more than just my nose and my name. She also shares my lack of patience, and my inability to sit still. Maybe not inability, but she and I share a mutual disinterest when it comes to sitting still.
But much to my surprise and delight the first day went really smoothly! Audrey sat still (mostly), she was thrilled to do her Letter of the Week curriculum, she even sat still during the prayer and scripture study. When her school time was over, she played nicely by herself until Sydney was ready to join her. What a blessing!
Zachary on the other hand….well let’s just say he got banished to naptime when he decided to draw on the wall.
