Today was the first day of the 2018-2019 school year, and Tucker's 1st day of school ever! The three older kids and I walked to school (while dad stayed home with the twins) so I could take some pictures and walk the kids to their classes.
Jada was so excited to start school and excited to be in Mrs. Taylor's 2nd grade class. Jada loves going to school and loves learning. She has a few familiar faces in "Mrs. Taylor's Forest" and lots of friends in her hallway. She would have loved to have been in a class with one of her good friends, but is great about making new friends and being brave. When I asked her to tell me at least one good thing about her first day and one bad, all she could tell me were good things. She said there wasn't anything negative to tell:)
I am so glad she loves learning and loves going to school. She came home telling me all about what is different in second grade and how she will have to do her homework this year. She is ready!
Tucker was a little nervous, but mostly excited to start Kindergarten. He was sad that he didn't get the same teacher as his best friend Annie, but loves his new teacher Mrs. Granger. She is so sweet and kind. Tucker really loves her and is excited to be an "awesome owl". He said school was fun today and that he made one new friend already . . . but he couldn't remember their name:)
When I picked him up from the bus stop he wasn't nervous at all. He said he is excited to go tomorrow and can't wait. No more nerves, just excitement.
