Although it isn't yet quite September just yet (that actually comes tomorrow), today marks the very first day of the new school year for Evan and Sierra!!! The summer went by quickly, probably more due to the poor weather we had for most of it, and it is already beginning to act and feel like fall outside. Football season has arrived, and so I guess it is appropriate that school should also be starting back up once again.
Today Evan is a 5th grader!!! His last year in Elementary school. Hard for us to believe, since we can still so vividly recall taking him in to see his new school, and meet his new Kindergarten teacher, as if it were just yesterday. Boy oh boy have these years flown right on by us. And today Sierra is a 2nd grader!!! She is so very excited to be starting school once again, and is also excited to have her same teachers and same class room this year, as she is part of a multi-age class.
The weather is quite appropriate for today....... rain showers happening right now, and about 56 degrees outside... feels like it is time for school.
Today also is Papa's 64th birthday!!! Happy Birthday to Papa. As is his tradition, he will spend today at the Oregon State Fair. :-)
So, my son is now 10 years old and in the 5th grade, my daughter is nearly 8 years old and in the 2nd grade, we are approaching the 6 year mark of living in our "new" place, I just completed my 20th year with the BFD........ WOW!!!
Well, better go rumble the kids from their slumber....time to get the school year started!!!!! :-)
