It’s officially a tradition… pictures in the trees on the first morning of the school year.
(Um… can we talk about how Bug’s feet are now just one size smaller than Songbird’s?!)
Having completed her first-phase braces this summer, Songbird is headed to 3rd grade with a big straight smile! This year will be a new experience for her as she transitions to a “switch class” format: half the day with one teacher for reading/writing and the other half with a different one for math, science, and social studies. Even more unique is that her set of team teachers are a married couple!
When I asked Songbird what her favorite part of summer was she replied, “Back to school shopping and going back to school.” LOL. I’m glad she has such a deep love of learning! And her pick for new school shoes couldn’t be more “her” (watermelon high-top Converse).
Bye bye, preschool… Bug is now a Kindergartner! In Virginia Beach, it’s still only 1/2 day but he is pumped to spend the mornings at the same school as Songbird. Not entirely sure how he’ll manage 4 hours without a snack break – this kid is always hungry!
One thing I know without a doubt is that he’ll bring his special brand of comedy along for the ride.
Handsome was able to be here for the exciting walk to the bus stop. For 3 years, Bug has watched Songbird get on that big yellow bus; now his time has come!
His smile was ear to ear as he climbed aboard – not a single tear in sight. Upon returning home, he confirmed that magical ride with no seat belts and a ton of other kids was just what Kindergarten dreams are made of.
