The First Day of School!
Okay so I know I'm a little behind on my posts, but I figured oh well better late than never right? Last Tuesday was the First day of school for the girls and Adrianna's first day of Kindergarden. We took the girls on the first day to help them find there classrooms, and meet there new teachers at there new school. Things were going pretty good until we actually got to school, and then the girls begain to get a little nervous. As we walked down the hallway Kayla begain to express her doubts of being ready for 3rd grade. I reassured her and she seemed to be fine, however Maria (my quite one) on the other had begain to cry and said she felt sick and just didn't feel good about the whole situation. She is usually really tough and doesn't cry a whole lot so it kind of suprised me. When I picked her up at the end of the day, she said "It wasen't too bad, it got better and better as the day went on." but the next day when she was getting ready for school the tears started to flow again. Now that we have conqured a few days of school things are going more smoothly, and there are no tears involved. Adrianna seems to love school, and goes everyday with no reservations.
Homeschooling on the other hand really hasn't got into full swing yet. With our recent move, I still haven't recieved any books, so I have been calling every day only to have them tell me wait a few more days, or call back tommorow. I am staring to get worried about being to far behind, I guess we will have to work extra hard on school once the books come. In the meantime Sean decided the girls should do one report a week on a story or person in the Bible. Alyssa's report is going to be on Ester and Shelbi's is on Mordecai, from the book of Ester. It will be fun to see what they comprehend.
