Back to School

School started here a couple of weeks ago!

With all our moves the last few years, Spencer has gone from Elementary (K-6th) to Jr. High (7 & 8th) back to Elementary (K-8th) and now again to Jr. High! He's excited to be able to take Seminary. He is doing great, making lots of new friends. In fact, he's been "Mr. Popularity" since we moved. The first week after we moved in, I had giggling girls on my doorstep ever night, asking for Spencer. Sometimes they even brought treats!

The morning of the first day of school. Shane was a little nervous, can ya tell?

After school...he had a GREAT day! He was so cute, he came bursting out of his classroom when the bell rang, and shouted across the playground, "Mom, it was awesome!" He really likes his teacher and has made lots of friends too.

It's always nice (and a big relief) when things start falling into place! Both boys have done great at adapting to new circumstances. They are old pros at moving and making new friends!
Here's to a great school year!

  2. Valerie,
    First off, congratulations on winning at Victoria's! That is awesome!
    I can understand why the girls are liking Curtis, he is a handsome guy! I have a feeling you'll have the same with Shane. What a cutie! Glad things are working out. Uprooting kids from school is SO hard!
    Love the new look of your blog.
