Back to Life, Back to Reality

The school year is officially in full swing.  We are back to school, back to extracurriculars, and settling into our new routines.

We started the school year with our traditional optimistic cheerfulness with a side of muffins, milk and fruit for breakfast.

Andrew began middle school this year.  He is taking Pre-AP Math and Pre-AP Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, PE, and Band.  Band is his favorite subject so far, and much to our surprise, he has decided to play the french horn like his Aunt Emily K!!!

Chad made Ryan and Andrew Legend of Zelda lunches for their first day.

Ryan began 4th grade and to quote him, "is having the best year of his whole life!"  He bounds out of bed each morning eager to face a new day.  He comes home bubbling over with enthusiasm about his class, friends, and his beloved teacher.

Molly began 2nd grade and is excited to have a neighborhood BFF in her class.  She likes her new teacher a lot,  but she is really missing her Miss Anglin.  She wishes she could have them both...along with Mrs. Nunn and Mrs. Starkey.  My sweet girl is all about relationships and wants those she loves around her at all times.

We made Molly a kitty cat lunch for our traditional first day fun themed lunch.

This year Andrew is taking piano, participating in Boy Scouts, and is on a fencing team in the community.

Ryan is taking piano, participating in Cub Scouts, and is in the dance company at his dance studio.

Molly is taking piano and is also in the dance company with her big brother.  Together they are taking acro, ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop classes.   It is fun to see them on the same team.  (And really nice for my schedule).
