First Day of School 08



Today was the first day of school for Charley and Joseph. Charley is in the third grade and Joseph is in the first grade. This is Joseph's first year at this school, first year of full day, and first year riding the bus, and it was also his first time at being a lunch helper. He was pretty excited! He insisted on riding the bus much to his mother's frustration as was his refusal for his mother to comb his hair, but he seemed to be just fine. He came home and announced his new friend at his table is "Shredder". (The boy's name is actually Trevor, I have to hide my giggles at his mistake.) This boy's sister is in Charley's class and also sits at her table as well. Go figure. Joseph already wants to set up a play date. Maybe we will set up one with his sister as well. Sam starts school in October so we only have a couple weeks together (with Ben) before he is gone in the mornings. He was pretty bummed when Joseph didn't come home until 3:00. He kept asking when they would get home and reminded me they were gone "too" long. I agree but such is life.

I can just hear Joseph saying "shredder" with his cute little voice. Firsts are always scary for me. Isaiah's first day of Kindergarten is on Monday:(

Denise - this is Jennifer from BYU math education days. It was so fun to find your blog. Your kids are so cute! I can't believe how old Charley is - it really doesn't seem that long ago that we were driving to student teaching together. I hope everything is going well for you.

I can't believe how much Joseph looks like Ronny in that first pic! Charley looks too cute in that pink and brown!

Hi Denise! You asked a few days ago if we had plans for Thanksgiving. We will definately be in town for Thanksgiving, unfortunately its kickoff week for the busiest time of year at work and I have to work all the rest of the week. Are there any other long weekends before then that we could get together, I wonder?
