The last few days have been a wild ride of emotions. Yesterday was the first day of Kindergarten for Teagan and the first day of 2nd grade for Jude. Now, let me update you on a few changes we made last year. We decided to have Teagan choice into a magnet school in our district for Kindergarten – it is a great art magnet school that has a great sense of community and eccentric learning. We put Jude on the wait list for this school as well, but his grade was full. We went into the 2018/2019 school year knowing that Teagan would be at the magnet school and Jude at the private school we have been attending for 5 years. We dropped the kids off at their schools as planned and then I got a call one hour into the school day…”We have an opening for Jude”.
Goodness this changed our whole day and school plan. Today Jude is having his 2nd first day of school for the 2018/2019 school year and is now enrolled at the same magnet school as Teagan. We are really excited to see what this school year brings but also really sad to be saying goodbye (for now) to our school family we have been with for 5 years. We are confident that the friendships we built at our previous school will continue to flourish.
First Day of School Pictures
Teagan had a great first day of school and could not wait to go back this morning.
He is so grown up!! Cannot believe we are heading to 2nd grade. And while his first day of school was not traditional we are super excited to see how his 2nd grade year goes. I think he is most excited about the computer and music classes at his new school.
For our chalkboard this year Teagan wanted to make sure we added that her favorite food is a Mayonnaise sandwich – really that means ham and cheese with mayo. She LOVES mayo! And after her first experience at zoo camp this summer she has decided that she wants to be a zookeeper when she grows up.
Once again Jude told me that he wants to be a scientist when he grows up but also added that he wants to work as a zookeeper as well. This year he wanted to make sure we added that Battlebots is his favorite TV show as well. And I had to add that he is a Reading Machine – because it is absolutely true!!
Well there is our first day of school story and now I need a nap. I hope you kids have a great school year!
