The Beginning of another school year

I can’t believe it is time for school to start again. It will be Emily’s last year in elementary school and Samuel’s first. Samuel actually starts a week after the rest of the kids because for the first week the kindergarteners have one on one meetings with the teacher. I took the girls last week to pick out new backpacks and lunch boxes. One nice thing is that I didn’t have to buy them any new school clothes because Grandma got them some already when they were in Cedar City. They were so excited to go to school today that they all were awake and dressed before I got up. When it was time to head for the bus I got them to pose for a picture so I could post it here. I took five pictures because the kids wouldn’t cooperate and look in the camera.


After school the kids said that they had a good day and they like their new teachers. The one thing I hate about the first day of school is all the paperwork you have to fill out and sign when they get home. It took me about a half hour to finish reading and signing the stuff. Luckily now I don’t have to do it again until next year. I wonder when Emily goes to middle school next year what kind of forms and stuff I will have to fill out.


  1. Oh no! I hate school. For once our school is starting at the end of August instead of the beginning and I am so glad. Exactly a month away until we start. Boo!

    We don’t get a lot of paper work in Middle School, and what seemed like a blessing has started to trouble me, I feel like I never know what is going on. Good news is, the school does automated phone calls to remind of the really important stuff. So I know nothing in advance thanks to Wells, but finally find it out thanks to my friend the computer voice.
