School Starts On Monday :(

School starts for Miss Hope Marie on Monday and this Mom is sad…I love summer with my children and my grandchildren.  Even though this year was a little laid back around here for several good reasons we had a wonderful wonderful summer.  We only took one short trip, but we spent HOURS and HOURS in our new cheap pool.   It was a great buy and we have already gotten our money back in fun.  More about that later.

Hope is going to have an awesome year with Mrs. Joyce her second grade teacher, who by the way was one of her teachers last year also.  I think that is a good way to transition the younger kids.  In first grade the kids changed classes and one teacher did reading spelling and English and the other did math science and social studies.  Anyway the same two teachers who taught her in first grade will continue to teach her in second grade.  The only difference is that this year her homeroom teacher is Mrs. Joyce not Mrs. Betty.  Good idea whoever thought that one up needs a lollipop!!  I look forward to the year but am just sad that summer is over.  I will allow myself to be sad about that for about 24 hours then it will be “lets see what a great fall we can have this year”

Our beautiful, talented, awesome daughter will amaze us again this year just as she has for the past 4 and 1/2 years…yes it has really been that long.  What a blessing she is.  Our lives are forever changed for the better because of her presence in this family.
