First Day of School!

 Its hard to believe that summer has come and gone already...but these two were really excited for school to start today!

Since Avery did 1/2 day kindergarten last year at FBC Augusta, she is transitioning into a new school where she is in first grade. She thinks she is really big stuff and was most excited about learning Spanish and going to the library. I am a little nervous for these first few days - she'll be riding the bus home (which really makes me nervous!) and eating in a cafeteria for the first time.

I am planning on dropping Avery off in the carline most days but since today was her first day she wanted me to  walk her in...so I parked on the side of the road (there were cars everywhere) and loaded the little 2 into the stroller. The school was wall-to-wall with people and I could hardly navigate the stroller down the hall. It was really overwhelming! I left Avery sitting quietly reading a book waiting for class to start...hoping her day goes smoothly!

Griffin is in the four year old class at FBC and goes 9:00-1:00, five days a week this year. He loves his teacher (she was Avery's para pro last year) and thinks he is big stuff getting to go to school everyday now. None of the kids from his class last year are in his new class so he'll be starting from scratch again...good thing he isn't shy and that he loves people!


  1. They look Adorable for their first day! I know Mommy is really excited as well! :)

  2. Oh my goodness! I can't believe how grown they look! I miss your sweet family and love reading your posts :)
