3 Weeks Later

I'm finally getting around to posting first-day-of school stuff. With year-round school, this doesn't feel like such a huge deal, but it is to the kids.

Lyndsi is in 2nd grade and loving life and her new teacher. She was a bit nervous at first. She really liked her teacher last year. So far, so good, though. I'm loving that this teacher doesn't do a lot of paper work in class or at home. Reading is the main homework and soon I think there will be some sort of spelling homework. The best part? Wearing the same outfit to school as her bff. Totally planned and they looked so cute.

McKay started Kindergarten. Despite being a little nervous, he took to school like fish to water. I think it helped knowing his Grandpa Maynes taught Seminary to his new K teacher. (Definitely helped mom!) He had been worried for the last several months about how to make new friends. He has since informed me that it's quite easy to do. "You just say hi and then play together. "

Two kids in school, and I still haven't cried sending them off. They're just way to happy being there for me to cry. Besides, I still have Sophie at home. :)
