The First Day of School....

Someday I will be better at posting events as they occur instead of always a month behind. In the meantime...

The kids started school on August 21st. Conner began his first day of 6th grade at Willow Valley Middle School in Wellsville. I still can't believe he is a 6th grader!! I had anxiety all day worrying about him, hoping he remembered his schedule, found his classes ok, and that he didn't have any problems with his locker. Major stress for this mom!! School starts at 7:30 so he gets up pretty early, which I have been so proud of him so far. I only have to go in and wake him one time and he gets up, dressed and teeth brushed without me harping on him at all. Courtney and I went with him to school on the first day and not only was I practically the only parent there, I was definatly the only mom with her camera in tow! Most kids would probably be embarrassed by this but not my Conner, he was such a good sport and let me take some photos. I'm sure this will be the last year I will be able to get away with this, so I truely enjoyed it while it lasted! :) I'm so proud of you Conner!

Then it was sweet Courtney's turn... She started 1st Grade this year at Lincoln Elementary. She was so excited to go, wear her new clothes and meet her new friends.

So, cute! I was the same way with Kaden in middle school this year, I worried about all the same things. (and for nothing, he loved it)Funny how us moms are wrecks and our kids are so resilient!
