First Day of School
Yesterday was the start of a new school year. Chet started 4th grade and Katie and Nel started 1st. The girls were excited about school starting because this year they get "desks that open up" and homework. Chet wasn't as excited, but he did set his alarm and got up and ready before I came out of my bedroom. Everyone enjoyed seeing their friends again and brining in all their new school supplies. We weighed their backpacks with all their supplies and Chet's came in at 13# and Katie and Nel's at 11#. That's a lot of school supplies. We celebrated the first day of school with our traditional letter shaped pancakes and picture on the fireplace.
