Back to School

School has started here in Alabama.  This summer breezed by and now it is time to buckle down to classroom studies for the Grands.

Kendall is in the sixth grade.  While she was looking forward to seeing her friends every day, she was not looking forward to advanced math.  She is a smart girl but advanced math was a bit of a struggle. Amelia wisely decided that this brain needed a challenge. It is always one of those lightbulb moments when you realize you are not quite  as smart as you thought you were.  It happens to all of us.

Landon was happy to find that he would be in the class with his best friends. Amelia said he is sitting beside one of his besties and we both wonder how long before the teacher moves him to another seat.

Meanwhile in Hoover, the Grimmlins headed off for another year.  Margaret is in second grade and Baylor is in kindergarten.  Katy said Baylor had a good first day at school. When they got home from school, Baylor went right to his room got in bed and took a nap.  Please continue to pray for Baylor man as he is in a transitional classroom and it is a new type of class for the school system.  Margaret face timed us on Wednesday evening to tell us about her class. Her two best friends are in her class as well so that made her very happy.  We found out that Margaret was chosen for this particular class because of her kindness and being a friend to all.  We were so proud of her.

And the littlest Grimmlin is still enjoying summertime.

She has really enjoyed pool time this summer.  She will not be going back to day care as her Kim grandparents will be taking over childcare now that they are living in the area. I am thankful that they  are willing to do this for Audrey.


Fall is coming ....school, high school football games and cooler mornings are all signs!!

The changing of the seasons is always special but the fall is my favorite! The quads start on the 28th.I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that they are old enough! Love the pics of your grands on their first day! Long ago when Summer started school, I would make a special red, white and blue outfit for her first day. Every year I would do this. Funny, but she is still partial to red/white/blue and is very patriotic. I also taught her to leave a place better than you found it.....the beach, a room, ......and she does that to this very day! Principles learned in childhood are the foundations of life!

Oh, I am so glad it is not back to school time yet here. I think it will be another week or two. I noted that the Dollar Tree has their decorative pumpkins out ...

Love all the pictures. Oh, that Audrey!

Arlene, it is so hard to wrap my head around school starting in August. It always starts after Labor Day in CA and in NJ. The grands looks so adorable in the 1st day of school pictures! And little Audrey - enjoy your time while you can!
