1st Day of School!

Friday was our 1st day of school and other than a long and crazy afternoon of transportation issues, we all had a great one! 

My 3rd grader, Kindergartner, and almost Preschooler. (Layton's official 1st day is today!) And for the record.... they all picked out the same shirt. =) #myloveofmatchingiscontagious

I am so excited for all 3 of them and this brand new school year!

Last year's 1st day of school. =) They've grown so much! (And this year I didn't even think about individual pictures. We were on a mission to be on time and feeling a little rushed. Ha.)

My 1st day of PreK was awesome. Super busy, tiring, fun, and a little wild. I love my students already and have amazing parents! I am experiencing God's grace again and oh so thankful.

This was my first time ever to not get to take my biggest to his first day of school. But thankfully I was at peace about it and Terrell was able to take him and everything went smoothly. It's breaking my heart a little that I can't take Layton this morning for his 1st day of preschool but I know he'll be fine with Terrell and that he won't be scarred, or probably even remember! Haha. 

I did get to take my middle baby for his 1st day since we're in the same building and he had a great day with his new teachers. We love Mrs. Molina already!!

He was all smiles after school and other than being pretty exhausted he had the best day. =)

Garrison also had a great day! YAY!!! Going to a new school and experiencing some changes had us all a little nervous about the 1st day (and the whole year), but his first impression of the elementary school was awesome. His word. =) He is super excited about the year and loves both of his teachers. 

After school was pure craziness thanks to some new changes in schedules and transportation with our school system so we couldn't stick to our normal 1st day of school special snack at home because we weren't home until almost 5. So instead we took the boys out for American Pie and they got to have ice cream for dessert. 

We had a fun Friday night celebrating our successful first days! 

This morning we set out for our first full week of school. Mama is a little nervous about how it's going to go but covering it all in prayer. This is a BIG adjustment for all of us and I'm praying it's a smooth one! I'm not sure when I'll be back with an update as I want to give myself some time to settle into my new role and *try* to rest and relax during the times we're home as much as possible. But, my goal is to keep this family scrapbook going so my "break" isn't long term. =) Have a great Monday and a wonderful week!
