First Day of School!

This is a first for all of us! This year, the kids will be going to the public schools in our neighborhood for the first time ever! I'm a little leery of public schools, probably since I was raised in private schools, but with Riley wanting to go to the Naval Academy, he is really going to need all the options that a big, public school can provide.

So, here they are, off to their first day of 4th and 8th grade. Regan is riding her bike with friends, they were going to meet up at the corner (and they were all supposed to wear ALL purple!), so she was anxious to get the photos over and meet up. We met her teacher yesterday, she seems really nice, and one of her best friends from the neighborhood, Piper, is in her class, she was very happy about that! She is going from a class of 12 to a class of 22! Big change for her, but I know since she made all A's and B's last year, she will do great this year.

Riley will be riding the bus to school, and the bus stops right in front of our house, so that's nice! His bag was so heavy with all his books and supplies, we had to leave the supplies at home to bring tomorrow, and he still had to carry one of the books. I really hope they don't have to carry those around every day. He's not as excited about heading back to school as Regan is, but I know he's looking forward to getting involved in some of the school's activities.
