1st Day of School...Already?!


Well, today was another first at our house. Logan started Middle School. He is in the 6th grade and attending Spring Creek Middle School. He was pretty nervous going to a new school, having a locker, and trying to figure out where his 7 classes were. I was worried about him all day and hoping that he had a good day and experience. He survived, even came out smiling, and was excited that his best friend Mason was in 5 of his 7 classes. So, I don't know that he met a lot of other kids, but at least some of the newness will have worn off for tomorrow. It has brought back a lot of memories for me as I have helped him get registered and ready for middle school. I can't believe Logan is old enough to go to middle school, which in turn makes me wonder when Jay and I ever got old enough to have a child this old!

Katelyn is starting 3rd grade. Her teacher this year is Mrs. Rawlins. The picture with her teacher was taken last night at back to school night. Katelyn rode the bus to and from school today (see did NOT enjoy that...at least that's what she said). She seemed to like her teacher and I was impressed with the classroom responsibilities and policies that Mrs. Rawlins sent home today. Hopefully it will be a great year for Kate!

Spencer is going to be in Kindergarten this year. His teacher is Mrs. Searle. She is actually cousins to my friend Maria. She seemed really nice and Spencer liked her. Spencer was a little put out when he realized that because of kindergarten assessments, he doesn't get to start school until next Thursday. He is ready to go! I can't believe my little Spencer is going to school. He has been my buddy and I'm going to miss having him here all day. Of course, kindergarten is really only about 2 hours...so I guess he'll still be around some.:)

Well, I better get to bed...what with Logan leaving for school at 7:05 am, we are now getting up quite a bit earlier to get him off. Last year he didn't even wake up until 7:45!

Hey girl, the kids are getting sooo big. Brandon & Jason started 6th grade on Monday and Easton starts pre-school this next Monday, crazy! One of these days we will get together I swear LOL :)

Your kids are all so cute! PJ loves having a locker too. Middle school is such a big deal. I wish kindergarten here was only half day. It goes all day (from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.), just like the older grades. I think it's too long for 5-year olds, but at least Jonah is having fun and doing great. It's fun to see what you guys and your kids are up to. Sorry we weren't able to get together when we were out in Utah this summer. It would have been fun, but we were kind of short on time. Take care!

Middle School? I must be old too or something. And leaving the house at 7:05? That's obscene if you ask me. Criminal even :-) The kids look darling and I'm sure they'll have a great year.

Wow... middle school does seem so old! Your kids are sure growing up! Have fun with that 7:05 out the door... remember the good old days of sleeping in?

Your kids are so cute and getting so big! We don't talk to you guys very often so it's fun to catch up on your family this way. Tell Jay "hi" too for us.

Yes- Summer went way too fast. We'll have both of ours in preschool this year. I don't know if I should be excited or sad.

I can't believe school has started already. Seems like it was just the 4th of July. Logan may be tall but really? middle school? Where does the time go. Kate looks adorable as usual and Spencer in kindergarten?? I'm sure they are having a blast. Hows little Matthew doing? Well actually I probably shouldn't call him little. Grandma said he is growing like a weed. Well, take care of yourself. We hope to see you soon. We will have to try and come up for a couple days sometime soon. Love you! Tell everyone hi!
