First Grader Faith!

School came up too fast this year! I didn’t even realize exactly what day her school started until 10 days before! August 15th…. it’s still Summer! We have thoroughly enjoyed our Summer this year.

Miss Faith is always excited for school. She loves the school, her teacher, her class….. On her first day I asked her how it went and she excitedly said, “I get THREE recesses AND a Lunch!!”

It’s quite a big jump from 2.5 hours to 7 hours, but she loves it! I was the one that was more nervous, I had the school-jitters for her. It took me back to my school days, it was exciting yet nerve-wracking also…. fear of the unknown. Once you establish a routine and rhythm and get the hang of the things, it gets better.

I’m not one of those moms who can’t wait for their child to go back to school. While I’m excited for her, I love having my kids home!




First day of school…. She does not like the sun in her eyes :)
