Another 1st Day of School

1st Day of School

Audrey and Andrew Ready For School

We’re running out of “1st Day of Schools”, but today was one of the last few. Audrey started her freshman year of high school, and Andrew begins his junior year.

This year high school starts during daylight hours. Our county swapped the starting times between the high school and middle schools, so now the poor 6th graders have to be at the bus stop at 6:30 am while the high schoolers sleep in. Andrew said it was weird finishing first hour in daylight.

One interesting contrast between our experience sending Andrew off to high school and that of sending Audrey: On the Saturday before school begins there is an orientation and sign up where you get your locker, find your classes, etc. Both of us went with Andrew two years ago and helped him figure things out. He was happy to let us join him. Audrey, on the other hand, went with Andrew to the orientation day, and was happy to have the independence. She didn’t want a ride to school from Mom on the first day either; she took the bus.

  1. What beautiful kids! My mom just told me about your website. Eddie will also be a Freshman this year. The twins will be in 4th grade. They all start Wed. So, just finished up supply shopping today, of course! Hope the 1st week goes smoothly!

  2. As you start a new school year remember Colossians 3:23. 🙂

    Jessica and Rebecca start their university classes next Monday (and Rebecca will start her home classes that same day). We will be moving Jessica into the dorm tomorrow.
