It was the first day of school today and I was so surprised that Elena and Max were up at 6:15 all on their own to get ready. Max came into my room and said, "hurry mommy, we don't want to be late." He was already dressed with his backpack on and said he had already eaten. (jaw drop here) Max has been really unhappy about starting school again and today he was the first one up and ready! I told him it was way to early to head off to school. So he went in and packed his lunch. After I showered and was ready, he told me, "Okay mom! Let's go. We can't be late on the first day of school!" This was about 7:15. I gave him a quick hug and told him school didn't start for another hour and 5 minutes. He smiled in his little embarrssed smile and say, "oh." Too cute.Elena is moving on up into the 4th grade! I can't believe how big she is getting! It just amazes me at how smart she is and how aware she is of what is going on around her. She was a little nervous and had a stomachache as we walked to school this morning but she turned to me and said, "But it is okay mom because dad gave me a blessing and I will do just fine. I am just a little nervous/excited!" (that is exactly what she said, including the slash part :)) What a sweet girl she is!
Elena's teacher is Mrs. Plugge. Laney taught me how to spell her teacher's name since that is what they learned today! :) Go figure. I don't know if I would have figured it out on my own. It sure is a unique one.
Max is in 2nd grade this year and was so excited to see all of his old friends. His teacher is Mrs. Wheeler. As for school, he really doesn't like it all that much but he came home from school today and he told me they started multiplication but that he didn't do very well. I said, "brada if I even looked at times in 2nd grade, I woud' ha fallen out my chair!" Well, maybe not quite like that, but you get the idea! I hate math but Max seems to enjoy it. We shall see though when we get going a bit more!
