August 7, these four kiddos started back to school. Braden is a junior this year.
Cade is a freshman.
I am beyond excited that Cade can ride to school with Braden this year! Definitely makes my life easier! These two are just about the exact same size. They are both measuring 6'1"!
The girls' story is a little more confusing. These two started 2nd grade at the elementary school all my kiddos have gone to. We love our school and have become a fixture there. Bryce started there 14 years ago!!
However, things have changed at our house in 14 years! Our schedule around here is crazy and fitting everything in was very trying last year. In fact, the girls did not take dance last year because I just couldn't fit it all in. Add on top of that my Gracie, who takes a little more time to learn. We had someone tutor her after school last year, which helped incredibly, but added to the crazy. I say all that to say this...we changed our plan.
Come to find out, one of my favorite teachers retired last year. She decided she would like to homeschool a couple of cute girls in the mornings! I couldn't pass up the opportunity. This is a game changer for us! Not only will Gracie be getting the one on one that she needs, and Wesleigh will be challenged and stretched, but our schedule opens up incredibly! They will school until noon and then we can do our violin, dance and boys' baseball in the afternoon. I have stressed over the decision, but I am thrilled. Today was their first day and I cannot wait to go pick them up and hear all about it!
No more uniforms! (and we can wear our hair down because they won't get lice! lol...)
These three are going to have a great year! Lauren was Cade's teacher in 2nd and 3rd grade!!
Here's to a great school year for all the kiddos!!
