This year our Ms. Purple is in 7th grade, still in honors classes -- can't believe that next year she will be a teenager. Gavin is in 3rd grade and still missing his top two teeth. This year he is also in an accelerated math class. Our youngest is at different school this year since he was accepted into the Gifted and Talented program. He has to ride the middle school bus with his sister and then take another bus to his school -- its so early for a 1st grader. The first week went well for everyone, only one tantrum about homework. Jaden doesn't have homework until next week, although he did have to put together an "All about Me" box -- what was in it?? He put a Thomas train, a photo book I made him with a Thomas theme to the backgrounds, a webkinz animal, a baseball, crayons, and a calculator. There may have been a few more items but can't remember them off the top of my head -- I know he wanted to print out a picture of Mario.
I always take there pictures on the first day and the last day of school to compare. Here are the first day pics.
Let's hope the rest of the school year goes as smoothly:)
