First Day of School 2011

Back to school, back to school! The first day of school went pretty well in the Edwards house (there's a first for everything right?). Kaylee is old hand at the middle school thing, being in 7th grade and all. It didn't hurt that she knew she was going to have several of her good friends in most of her classes. Her schedule did get changed around a bit to accommodate a pre-algebra class, but that's what you get for being smart;) Reports are she had a good day. I didn't get any pictures of her because waking up at 6:30 makes my brain a little slow. Ashton (5th grade) was a little sad that none of her friends from last year are in her class, but she really likes her teacher and she gets to see most of her friends at recess anyway. Aiden (3rd grade) really likes his teacher too. It may have something to do with "Cookie Friday" but I think he would love his class regardless. I'm really excited for him because his teacher last year wasn't our favorite so he is due for a good one. Dalin started kindergarten. The school used to have only grades 3-5 and this year it switched to K-5 so luckily Dalin gets to be in the same school as Ashton and Aiden. His teacher is really nice but she had been teaching 4th grade so she's adjusting to kindergarten life too. There are about 38 kids in the class which is kind of insane. His teacher said if the get five more kindergarteners at the school they can get another teacher, so I'm hoping for that because sheesh! Best quote of the day comes from Dalin. He had a homework sheet where he had to color like five things which was almost to much for him to bear. He looks up at me and says, "I didn't even say anything mean about the principal and my teacher still gave me homework!" It's going to be a long year:)

The kids all set their clothes out the night before, it was pretty cute to see in the morning.

Dalin was a little nervous. He told me there were two girls in his class who cried, but he didn't cry, he "held his tears"

Oh my word! You're a free woman during the day! I have another two years before my youngest starts kinder. (Why did I have a baby in November?) Anyway, I'm extremely jealous.

This is so cute! I loved how Dalin 'held back tears'. What a tough little guy!
