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.
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...
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!
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!!
