First Day!




















We have finally started school! We started yesterday and it seems like this year is going to be great. We were finally able to get the kids on the track 5 since our school went to year-round. That is the track that is most like the 9 month calendar school year and the track that most of our ward is on. We are so grateful to be on this track! I only had to promise the assistant principal that I would be on the PTA this year. That is actually easy to do because my ward IS the PTA. I am even the PTA president's visiting teacher!

Anyway, the kids had a great day. Sam had his first day of Kindergarten with the cutest teacher. Her name is Mrs. Hernandez and I am so glad he got into her class. He seems to really be liking school and is very excited to get up and get going. Shaunie has a great teacher too. She has Ms. Ramirez who is excellent too. Here are some pictures of the first day of school.

Later that day we had a special Family Home Evening. Our treat was my pencil cake (not it's not made of pencils). It didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped, but it was still fun and very yummy.
