The First Day of School, 2009

These have been dusted off and actually used this week. This is good news. The teachers and the school board came to a happy compromise and school started Tuesday, September 15th, 2009.

These two kids got to go to school after eleven days of waiting. They were very happy. My son looks a little tired here. I think that he thought he could maintain a summer routine of staying up late. I think morning came early for him on this day.

My daughter was up early and ready to go. She had layed her outfit out the night before and asked my advice. Something she rarely does. I think she looked rather cute. The black hat she's wearing is sequined. Gotta have some bling.

I'm so happy they are in school and that I'm working steady for now. I call them every day after school to see how their day went. It feels strange, but I think it's gonna be okay. God has carried us every step of the way and I am so thankful for that.


  1. Oh yeah, you know H. has to have her bling or I wouldn't recognize her, lol!

    J. does look a bit tired but glad he was excited about going to school.

    We went to that conference this weekend and it was great but I have to admit that I am tired! Next weekend is another conference and then I think I'll be conferenced out for awhile, lol!

  2. I am so glad that they were able to start school! Yea! Great 1st day of school pic!

  3. Let me guess which backpack belongs to who?
    No brainer!

  4. Yeah, he was so upset when he lost them! However, we did eventually find him another pair.

    I thought they tasted pretty good, and everyone else said so. But the oldest thought that it was alot of work and said I should just buy 'em ready made.

    Thanks for taking my youngest home with y'all! Hope he's behaving himself.

  5. Glad they finally got to start school. Although your son doesn't look like he's glad ;)

    Hope you guys have a great school year!

  6. Wow, my kids would've been THRILLED to get to wait that long to start back to school. That's amazing!

    Glad they're back in motion now though.

  7. Wow! School just started? We moved from a community where school starts at the end of July to where school starts the middle of August. And you guys are just starting? Way to go!

    I have a big thank you over at my blog. Come by and pick up some encouragement! You have been a blessing to me!

  8. Hi Nannette,

    It is strange/funny how this whole first year of school started off.

    Sorry I have been out of touch for so long…life has been a whirlwind!
