First Day of School

Hi! It’s Jilly. Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for…THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!

We went over to their school yesterday to find their classroom, and luckily their teacher was there, so we were able to meet him, too. And, can I just add in here--I’m starting to feel old! I mean, I know I have 7 year-olds, but still…Sheesh! I’m pretty sure their teacher is younger than me, and by several years. I feel like I’m still fairly young. And, aren’t teachers supposed to be old?! Seriously! Ahem, moving on…

I am REALLY glad they are all in the same class this year. They were in three separate classes for the last two years, and it was such a pain in the b.u.t.t. It caused problems because they would have the same homework, but each teacher would want it done in a different way. Or, they’d have the same spelling list, but one teacher would have some of them be '”bonus” words, and the other teachers would not. Oy! I can’t keep up with that! (Ain’t nobody got time for that!)

I can’t believe I have kids in SECOND grade now. SECOND GRADE!! Seriously, where has the time flown to?! I hope and pray they do well at their new school and make good friends. They are really, really excited to start.

They’ve never ridden the bus to school before. In kindergarten they went to a charter school, so I drove them everyday. Last year we lived a mile from the school, so we either rode bikes to school (you can do that year-round in Arizona) or I drove them. They are really stoked to ride the bus!

getting on the bus

The bus picks them up right outside our apartment building, which is nice. I was freaking out a little, though, because the bus was 30 minutes late and I was afraid we’d missed it, even though we were outside 10 minutes early!!

Good luck, crazy kids! Have a great first day!!

  1. Congrats on sending them off successfully! My little one started pre-k today. I just died laughing when you linked to "ain't nobody got time for that." We quote that video frequently at our house! :-)


  2. They look excited! Must be fun to have 2 of your siblings in the same grade. :)

  3. Hope they are having a wonderful first day of school!

  4. Cute kiddos! I'm sure it will help that they are all in the same class this year!
    Stopping by from the mommy mixer and looking forward to following your posts!

  5. I swear I look at some teachers today and they are so young they make me feel like I have one foot in the coffin! Love the pics of your kiddos! They look excited!

  6. New follower from Friday chaos. Your kids are adorable!

  7. Having young teachers is not necessarily a bad thing...they haven't had time to become jaded by the system. :O) My oldest will turn 16 in December ... and he will be D-R-I-V-I-N-G! I don't know whether to be happy because he can drive (and run errands) or to be worried because he can d-r-i-v-e! *LOL*

  8. Your photos are SO CUTE - "first day of 2nd grade" I LOVE IT. When I have kiddos - I'm totally going to do that. Thanks for the idea!!!

    Hope they had an amazing first day!!

    Thank you for linking up to Thankful Thursday with me at First Day of My Life! :) ox

  10. These pictures are adorable! I am still a few years away from back to school pictures myself but I love how excited they seem to be about school! Thank you for stopping by my blog, I am now your newest follower! Have a great weekend!

  11. It was also tough for you to be at the events and in the classrooms when they were all separate -- being in the same class should make it easier on you in that regard, too.


Thanks for commenting! It really makes me smile!
