First Day of School

Today was the first day of school.
 The first day of seventh grade
 and fifth grade.
 The first day of second grade and of course (gulp)



The very first day of kindergarten...

He was so excited that it was hard to get a picture of him.  Kindergarten in Idaho is only three hours.  Our little guy is in the afternoon kindergarten class with a fabulous teacher.








We are renting a house only a half a mile from the elementary school and middle school.  There are lots of kids all around and so we have a group that walks together.




This is a view of our new  neighborhood and route to school.  It's up hill both ways but so, so beautiful.

 I wish I had a better lens so you can see the mountains in the background and rolling fields of wheat.
 And these are the sweet, sweet girls that Bella has been blessed to have as friends.  There is a great group of Beehives here that Cardi has been fortunate to meet.  Lucky for her there was room in the carpool so she didn't have to walk to school this morning.
This is John and Aweehoo, his rubbery, light up toy.  He gave me strict instruction when I dropped him off at school this afternoon to take good care of him...feed  him twice a day...and give him lots of hugs. 


And this is Aweehoo and what's left of John's light up sword...and what I hope are many more memories to come.

    1. Oh Becky! We miss, miss, miss you guys! John's teacher seems very patient and kind...two very endearing qualities (both of which you possess). How's the new job working out?
