Happy Friday! We have had a great first week back at school and are settling into our routine nicely. Normally, I tell you all about my favorites from the past week, but since this week has revolved around school so much, I decided to do something a little different today for Friday Favorites and ask my kids their favorite part of school this week.
Last Friday the kids put on their First Day of School outfits (although Jess changed his mind on his first day outfit before Tuesday rolled around) for me to take a couple of pictures in. I had planned a different location, but it started raining, so we went downtown and shot these pictures in the alleyway. We're fancy here in Smalltown, Texas.
Kendall is a junior now! She said her favorite thing about this week was getting ready for the pep rally and football game. It's safe to say her priorities are definitely in the right order. My favorite thing about this week is her independence this year. She drives herself to school, home from school, to practice, from practice, and to the grocery store when she forgot she needed a poster at 7:00 at night (yes, Katie, it's already happened). She has done a great job this week, and I am super proud of her! I can't believe how fast her school years have gone, but I am so excited about her future. She has a light in her and I cannot wait to see where it takes her!
In other news, my least favorite part of the week was when Kendall reminded me I need to clean out my closet..."Hey, we're suppose to dress like the 90's decade tomorrow. Can I borrow something from your closet?" Bless her heart.
Jess is in the four year old class, also known as the Zoo Crew, this year. It's his third and final year at Wee School. He says his favorite thing about school this week was going down the big slide on the playground. He also did some fun projects like making play doh and a magic name painting that he loved, too! My favorite thing about Jess' week is that he has one of my very good friends as a teacher. Yes, I'll pray for her a bit more than I already do, but I am excited that she gets to love on him and his classmates this year.
This girl has been waiting to go to Wee School since she knew what Wee School was! She has dropped Jess off with me the past two years and has been patiently waiting for her turn. To say she loved it would be the understatement of the year! She says her favorite thing was playing Princess Dress Up. Speaking of praying for teachers, her class has 12 girls and 1 boy, so her teachers need some prayers, too! Oh, and probably that lone little boy, too. Ha! My favorite thing about Jentry's week is the huge bear hug I get when I pick her up. She is always so excited to tell me all about her day.
We have been blessed to have had such a fun week. I am thankful for easy transitions for all my kids, and for the familiar faces they see in their hallways. I love this community and am grateful to raise my family here. Tonight is a big deal in a small town. You guessed it, it's Friday Night Lights! If you need me I'll be sitting somewhere on the 50 yard line, waiting for the halftime show to start!
Incase you missed my other posts this week...
I hope you all have a great weekend! Don't forget to #GOMO!
