here we go again! how can it be that i have a fourth grader? and, gianna is in her second year of school. i'm just wondering where the time goes? see my bear waving?
of course, we had to get a silly pic!
yes, roman is really that tall. he always jokes that he is going to be taller than me soon. however, the joke is on him because i'm not that tall. it really isn't a big accomplishment to be taller than 5'2", is it?
an annual tradition for the bigger kids is the running of the halls. did you doubt that roman would be up front? 😂
before their actual first day...we went in to the school to familiarize them with their classrooms and drop off their supplies. roman was pretty pumped that he is number 1 this year. he has always been number 2 (insert poop joke here) and when his friend, brendan bruen, left last year, he thought he would get bumped up. but, they got a new student, lacey (last name begins with b) and she took the top spot. well, her family has since moved and now, FINALLY, he is #1!!!
4th grade is gonna be fun!
gianna got to see her friend, eleanor, and they were so excited to be back together again!
her desk is closest to the teacher's desk and i'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing. 😁
later that day, we got to experience the solar eclipse. unfortunately, it was a super cloudy day and we couldn't see it until much later when the clouds broke for a bit.
by then, this was what we could see. it's still kinda cool.
a tradition that we have had for a few years now is going to our friends' pool in the afternoon on the first day of school (they always have a half day). so, here we are...having a blast, bringing in the school year on the right foot!
how are these boys big enough to play chicken? ugh...time is flying!
