Happy first day of school, kids.
Zachary and Ellie are in 7th grade this year. The middle grade in middle school. Does it ever get any quirkier than your 7th grade year? Middle schoolers seem to be on a planet all their own. But, I must admit Ellie seems to be handling her "odd ball" phase pretty darn well. I cringe when I think back to my middle school "look". I know I didn't look as good as Ellie.
Avery is in 2nd grade this year and going to a new elementary school. For those of you keeping score, this is Avery's 4th elementary school in just 2 years. I am banking on the fact that these changes are building up her character. She was most excited about 3 things: lockers!!!, her teacher, and riding her bike to school. A first for her. She feels pretty old now...and now so do I.
I think she looks pretty cute, inspite of the quick "first day outfit" change at the last minute.
(and just for the record we have only moved her twice. A boundary change enrolled her to a new building for 1/2 of her first grade year.)
