The first day of school is always the day after Labor Day around here. This year it was Tuesday September 6, 2011. Since Scarlett only goes to preschool Wednesdays and Fridays, it was just these two cutie pies going.
We are SO happy that Sofia landed in Mr. Rossi's class again this year for 2nd grade. JACKPOT! He is an awesome teacher and Sofia loves him. So do we!
Grayson landed in Mrs. Zentz's kindergarten class. We couldn't be happier about this assignment either. Sofia also had Mrs. Zentz and she is an AWESOME teacher as well. I don't think there is a better literacy coach alive. I imagine Grayson will be reading fluently pretty soon.
Doesn't everyone look cold? Yep! It was barely 60 degrees outside for the ceremonial bell ringing and flag raising.
On Wednesday, Scarlett was THRILLED to go to preschool. She has Mrs. Francis, of course. Grayson has had her for the past two years. We lover her too. Scarlett had a fabulous time and sang her little heart out all afternoon. They do a LOT of singing in preschool.
I'm happy for the kids to continue back to school, but I really do not like the chaos of the school year. I'm already looking forward to next Summer. In the meantime, I'm grateful for teachers we already know and love and a fun filled school year.
