First day....

Today was the first day of school. For the first time in 5 years, Jacob did not go to school with me. That was a little weird. He goes to a different building which is just for 5th grade. He had a great day though and really likes it so far! Jenna still gets to come with me. She is very excited about 1st grade. Her class had a little excitement today though. As they were lining up and getting ready to head to the gym for the welcoming assembly this morning, Jenna noticed a bat hanging from the ceiling in the hall and quickly told her teacher. Both 1st grade classes ended up staying put until the custodian captured the bat in a big container. Yuck!


And now, the traditional first day of school photos.....

Fifth grade already??? That is crazy. But then again, Luke and Carsyn are both starting kinder. I will soon have my first day photos -hope Luke looks as awake as your kids did when I take it at 6:45 am!!

I took advantage of an extra week and went in to Niles. Teachers go next Thur., kids on the 2nd. You can rub it in when you finish earlier, barring 10 snow days. Cute pictures, of course, but I pity the teacher trying to look cool when there was a bat! I'd hate to think how I'd react:"Every man (or kid) for himself! I'm hiding!"
