The First Day of School

Today was the first day of school for everyone!
-Abby moved up to the Pre-3 room at the daycare and was disappointed when I came to pick her up. Evidently she has just chosen (off the clip chart) to go to Art. She didn't to go home.
-Anna Grace started kindergarten. The pictures below are from this morning. Katie and Alex drove her to school and were the official photographers. I was already in my class so couldn't do this. She had a great day! I saw her several times which was no big deal. She knew she could wave but had to stay with her class. I was able to sneak in a few hugs now and then though. :-)
-Alex started high school. When asked about his day, the answer was, "It was boring." Typical answer for him. But he knows several people in each of his classes and at lunch so that's a plus. What's funny is the son of his biology teacher is in my class!
-Katie is now an official senior. The senior girls had shirts made that say Seniors 2009 on the front and Kiss Our Class (goodbye) on the back. They wore those today to celebrate their "senior-hood".
-My class started well. My assistants and I have already pinpointed which ones we'll need to keep a thumb on! Funny how it often doesn't take very long to figure that out. :-)

Enjoy the pictures! The last one is of Anna Grace and her teacher.

I love, love, love the pictures! Katie and Alex did a wonderful job! Anna Grace looks so cute and sweet. How could her teacher not love someone that precious???
