success!

Another successful first-day-of-school send off...
I am so thankful my kids like school. Camden might tell you otherwise... but the thing is, he really enjoys learning, and school is a great place to do just that. I was greeted with smiling faces after their long first day... and a few new supply lists! As the evening wore on we heard stories of the day and tidbits about teachers and friends... and it was as much fun to listen as it was to see the joy in their eyes. This morning they are moving a bit more slowly... but when you stay up a bit later to organize all of your new supplies, that is likely to happen. Laura is hoping that today they will start working with clay in her ceramics class. I hope so, too... because it sounds like fun. But really... I am just hoping... that tonight will be homework-free once again!

Nice to see their smiling faces. Your post reminds me of running in from school and telling my mom every single thing that happened during the day! Fun memories.

Love to see those happy faces. Glad they had good first days and hopefully the joy of school will last at least until Christmas holidays!!
Laura will LOVE the ceramics class, that is right up her alley.
