first week of school

well, we made it through another first week of school here in the linares household.  it was a week of firsts for two of the three girls.  sarah's first day of high school (did i just say that???? where has the time gone???) and savannah's first week of middle school!! 

here is sarah on her first day of high school.  she had to get up at 5 a.m. to catch a 6 a.m. bus!!! she actually got a do-over and had a second first day because the afternoon of the first day of school we received a call from the high school of the arts that she auditioned for back in january saying that she got one of the open slots!!! congrats go out to her!!!  needless to say she was super thrilled and is now attending Dreyfoos School of the Performing Arts! She was accepted as a Theatre major and has enjoyed the first week immensely! the bonus is that her bus comes an hour later so she can sleep in until 6 a.m. well, at least until she starts going to seminary and not doing home study, that is...but one step at a time.

  savannah was made for middle school.  she absolutely l.o.v.e.s. it! she sets her alarm and gets herself up without any more prodding from us! we love it too! she has enjoyed the freedom of going to classes on her own and not having to stand in a line like a small child.  she enjoys her classes and has made some new friends.  she also has many of her elementary school friends in some of her classes.  we enjoy hearing all of her middle school adventures upon picking her up.  

 as per school regulations, all students must have a clear or mesh backpack, so savannah requested that i crochet one for her.  it is still a work in progress, but she was able to use it for school this week.  just have to add a flap, one more outer pocket and some inner pockets...

new shoes!
grace was off to 3rd grade this year!!! she was super excited because her teacher seems very nice.  she said she was lonely in the car on her way because she is used to having a sibling ride along, but she is the only one in elementary school this year! 

 stylin' hair!

 new shoes!  she has been waiting for red converse!

 ready to start the first day!
whew! 3 kids in 3 different schools and all far from each other!!!  but, i got a feelin', whoo! hoo! that it's gonna be a good year!!

I feel so excited from this post that I want to start school dang it!!! I love school, esp the first week. And of course savannah likes middle school better----she is like 18 at heart (and in looks).
