As TD would say, "My eyes are burning." I'm tired! Getting up at 6:00 am is for morning people and the birds, both of which I’m obviously not! All three of my amazing children started school this week. All at different times, all at different places. This is going to take some getting used to!
Jacob's day starts at 6:15. He has to be on campus by 7:25 and it takes him longer than most women to get himself together in the morning! He was nervous about starting Leon High School, with a head count of around 1,000 kids and three stories of classrooms. Jacob's first day went fairly well, so he said. He was embarrased that he went into the wrong class during the wrong period and didn't know it until his name wasn't called on the roll. We told him he wasn't the only freshman (Oh my gosh, I have a high school freshman! Man, I'm getting old!) who did that yesterday, but I don’t know that our encouraging words helped any! Leon is the oldest accredited high school in the state of Florida and I have been told it is an awesome place to attend and learn. I guess we’ll get to form our own opinion over the next few years. When I picked Jacob up today at 2:00 he was in much better spirits and seemed to be in a good mood. He only complained about the heat today, saying he was, "just hot!"
Brie gets to sleep in until 8:00 am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (on Tuesdays and Thursdays she has to get up a little earlier so Gavin can get to school by 9:00) and she is very happy to be at the very top of the food chain at Elizabeth Cobb Middle School. She is officially a superior 8th grader. She came home yesterday very pleased with her schedule, except for getting PE again when she thought she would be taking Art. I spoke with the assistant principle this morning and got that changed. I haven't had a chance to talk to her yet, but I hope she likes her new art class. I am expecting great things from Brie this year. Her teachers are too! She was placed in three high school credit classes, Algebra I, Physical Science, and Spanish II. Say a prayer for my baby girl!! Looking at her first day of school pictures, she isn't much of a baby anymore… Deep breath, exhale! I know she can do it... especially if she learns to put even half of the effort towards school that she puts in to her social life! I will be off to pick her up soon - she gets out at 3:50.
|1st Day of Pre School!!!|
So we are all adjusting and looking forward to a great school year. I'm a lucky mommy with three awesome kids (and an amazing hubby too. TD, Thanks for going with us this morning!)!
(I promise to write an update about NIH soon, but this is what I wanted to write about today :) )
