1st day of school

Kenzie didn't want to get up. So she went and laid down on the kitchen floor.
Nelson Had some serious bed head going on.
Idk what Sammy's prob. was he was actually super excited about going to school.
The whole group of them.
Now Sammy is happy.
Happy Cali
Nelson and Kenzie happy because they have another week before they start.
Sammy and Mr.Ordway

Wow I can't believe summer is over and school is back in again. This summer was such a flurry of activity we barely had time to catch our breaths before we were getting ready for school. The Kids have really been looking forward to this day for awhile. Sammy in particular. He has been carrying his new backpack around for almost a week and has been most disappointed when we kept telling him that day was not the day for school. He has been very ready to go back. I am very happy with both teachers. Mr.Ordway was Nelson's 1st grade teacher and i think he will have a wonderful influence on Sammy as well. Mrs. Anthony was also Nelson's teacher in third grade. I just love her as teacher. Cali could not be more thrilled with the fact she has Mrs. Anthony. I just know both Kids will have a great year.
As for Kenzie and Nelson I will be home schooling them again this year. Yes this thought still panics me some but I really believe it was the right decision to make. Nelson's confidence level is going way up and Kenzie is no longer saying she is bored with school anymore. She used to be as excited about school as Cali and Sammy and it makes me sad she is losing that excitement. I guess that is also partly the age. Nelson is still A bit behind but he is definitely doing better and I am proud that he is putting forth the effort to get better. Kenzie last year was a huge help with Nelson and I Imagine this year she will be as well. Kenzie has said she wants to do High school at high school so next year she will be away from me again which actually works because the thought of doing High school classes scares the living daylight out of me. Nelson has expressed an interest about getting back into school over at McKinny. While I don't forsee that happening next year a Hopefully We can get him up enough to that in the next couple of years.I am so afraid I am going to make things worse for them but so far i am doing ok. For now and this year It is my prayer I can do just as well but hopefully better then I did last year.
