First Day of School 2014

So happy for these kids!  All going to school.  With 4 kids going to school the emotions range drastically. 

Kindergarten, 1st grade, 5th grade, 7th grade
And we thought this day would never come!
Now Eden...if we could just get her to Kindergarten

Noah: 7th grade.  He doesn't want to go to school.  He's too cool for school.  He just wants it to be summer EVERYDAY!  Well... It's school.  And guess what?  He liked it.  He loved seeing all his friends.  Friends...That's what we are there for!  FRIENDS!

Anna:  5th grade.  She was in pure PANIC mode.  Poor thing.  Her acid reflux has been flaring up and her stomach has been hurting for weeks.  We changed her medicine and she should be feeling better soon.  BUT she was terrified of being sick in her class.  WHO DOESN'T REMEMBER THAT FEAR!?!  But she made it there through many tears.  She even made me cry and worry all day.  But you know when she started feeling better?  When I left!  THANKS ANNA!  And she asked me to do all that!!  She's a nutso!  But I love her and truth be told...she's ME! And she had a great day ...and loves school, her teacher, and her friends!

Mary: 1st grade.  SWEET SWEET MARY!  She was so excited to go to school.  To wear her new shoes and carry a new lunch box.  Oh the joys of school.  She loved her "real" desk (she doesn't sit at a table anymore), her pink pencil box, and her teacher.  She's ready to meet new friends and have a great year.  She was so ready and so grown!

ISAAC: KINDERGARTEN!!!  Do I need to say it again?!?  Kindergarten!!!!  He has not really wanted to go to school until just a couple of weeks ago and today he was PUMPED.  He got a new backpack, new shoes, school supplies, lunchbox.  He was ready to meet his teacher, RECESS,  and to see friends in his class.  Logan (a friend from church) is in his class so he was FEARLESS!  FEARLESS, I SAY!   So sad good-byes or tears from him or me there!  We thought this day would never come and it's here!!!  And he was happy to go.  So happy for him and proud of him!! 

So majority was HAPPY but the squeaky wheel always get the grease.  So ANNA DOLLAR!!!  My heart ached for her all day and I'm so proud she came out on top!  She's a trooper. 

Love these Dollar kids!




Fun First DAY!!!!  Here we GOOOOOOO!
