Adriana is excited to be the oldest kid at the school this year. She's happy because all the kids in her class are her good friends that were in her class last year. No new kids this year. She's nervous because she wants to do really well and she is very hard on herself. She worries that she's not smart enough or pretty enough. She is also a little sad that summer is over and she won't have time to spend at home as much. I promised her that when Fall Break comes (October) we will go to Lava Hot Springs while the other kids are still in school!

Mariah is the first of our children to go to Kindergarten. I was more nervous than she was. I took her into her class and she was kind of holding onto my leg and not wanting to go in, so I helped her find her name on her table and her name on her cubby. Then the teacher looked at us and said "okay parents, this is where we say bye-bye!!". Then I started to cry. It was a weird reaction (I'm pregnant!), but I couldn't believe I had to leave my baby for 3 whole hours! Well, she had a great time and loved the coloring and the playing outside part the best. She has told me about her friends but she can't remember any of their names yet!
Annalisa 2nd grade
Annalisa loved her first day of 2nd grade. Her teacher is so AWESOME and she gets to sit by a cute boy and her best friend, so it should be a good year! I went to pick Mariah up from Kindergarten and Anna was having lunch so we sat and ate with them and got to talk to her teacher. That's why she's the only one with a picture of her teacher.
