First Day of School

The first day of school is always an exciting time. It is different having 2 kids in Elementary now, and it has been fun watching them get excited for a new year. Ben is very excited about being the 2nd grade and is thrilled with his new teacher because she gives play money for good behavior and you get to use it every Friday at her store. Rewards work great for him. Alec is my big afternoon Kindergartener and is learning how to make new friends. My sweet sensitive boy feels a little overwhelmed sometimes, but overall is doing great. Ty started his preschool playgroup today for his first day. He gets to go once a week with some friends rotating to different houses where the mothers take turn teaching. I think he was most excited to finally get to be in school. Hetakes it very seriously and had a great time today. He was a little disturbed when he got home to find that his brothers had still not returned home, but I think overall he is going to love this year with friends. I really love the fall time, and with it all the new beginnings you get to share with your kids.
