Somebody is excited to be a first grader! (and has the cutest donut backpack. so her.) We failed at the first day photos but I took some today and I'll call it good. Ev is already loving that school is back in session (except that it means no more all-pool days). Her favorite things are lunch and recess. #educationmatters. Dez seems to be liking the alone time, for now. I'm loving a couple of quiet hours during his nap time mid-day. (pure heaven.)
Nakiah is ready to tackle 8th grade. In the photo below he is explaining to me that... "It's just like last year, Mom. I have like, two really awesome teachers and then the rest are just pretty good. I can tell already that those ones will have some bad days.."
He tends to get pretty nervous before the start of a school year but I didn't see any signs of it this time around! I guess he's maturing. We had our annual talk about his goals and plans for the year. I set up and explained our expectations. He asked for xbox days. We met in the middle. Here's to hoping these kids have another great year!
