School started today! I usually love the first day of school, everyone is excited and we always get up early. This is my first year with both kids in all day school, and it was fairly bittersweet. I'm excited for them, and hopeful for some new opportunities for me.
Alex, 8 years old, has Ms. Ehrhart for 3rd grade. Alex is really smart and good at making friends. His best friend, Torin, isn't in his class this year, but he'll still see him at lunch. Alex loves to play with legos still and is started to get into science creations. He still is the best big brother ever and plays with Lydia.
Lydia, 6 years old, has Ms. Vanlandingham for 1st grade. She was a little nervous about lunch this year, not sure that she'll sit in the right spot. Her best friend, Piper, is in class with her. Lydia really took off in reading this summer and she's excited to have her own desk this year. She's a great combination of princess and sporty, and she has no fear.
Aspen walks them to and from the bus each day (with me, she's not THAT awesome :). We're glad that school is here, and a little sad that we can't have summertime play anymore. Last friday they both tried to waterski for the first time! They didn't get up but boy are they getting big! I love these kids.
