I try to commemorate the first day back to school. My Mom did this with a picture of Denise and I on the porch holding our backpacks. I wanted to keep that going with our boys. Last year, I didn’t do it – they both were being homeschooled at the start of school, plus our lives were upside-down and inside-out.
This morning the boys started back to school. This is the Joint Learning Session that kicks off the school year. The kids who are homeschooled join into the classroom with the kids who regularly attend the school. For three weeks they get to learn together and enjoy much extra-curricular activities.
How they have grown in the last 5 years! It seems like only yesterday Joshua was getting ready for school for the first time. I’m sure they will enjoy these first 3 weeks.
I love these traditions. And your posts.
Awe, the memories! Have a great first day! Love you all!
It’s neat to see pics of the boys standing in front of your P Hill house in their KMOS-TV and Trails Library tee-shirts. Your young men are growing up fast and changing so much! Keep posting pictures. Love, Mom
