School Days

So last week we started school!  I seriously cannot believe that summer is over but yet it is!  We indeed had a great summer, but I know we were all ready to enter back into a nice routine!!

We made a major change this year with Peyton and school.  We thought long and hard about homeschool due to the hours he would be in school and at one point were 100% going down that path. Then out of the blue a friend mentioned a school to us that went from 2 years to 1st grade!  The major thing for us was the hours.  At Norfolk Chrisitian, Peyton would have gone to school from 8:25-3:00!!! At West Ghent he goes from 8:45-1:30!  I personally love having my kiddos with me as much as possible...but also feel they need the interaction with others!  Also, West Ghent accepts 2 year olds...and since my sweet Maddox has yet to astound us with his vocabulary, we decided it may be a good idea to start him and get him around other kids!

So, Wednesday was Peyton's first day!  And he did amazing for going to a school where he only "kind" of knew 2 kids!  He walked in and sat down and started his work.  HE LOVES SCHOOL!!!  He walks right into class and sits down and barely notices we are gone!  I love this...such a 180 from the past two years.  But I will take it!

On the other hand, Maddox had his first day on Thursday.  He only goes two days, Tuesday and Thursday and only from 9-12.  Bless his sweet heart.  The teachers told me he cried off and on all day, but that is only to be expected from him since he has been by my side and his brothers since day 1.  He will adjust, I am sure!  So we will try again tomorrow and hoping he has a better day!!  Fingers crossed!

Heres to a fabulous 2013-2014 school year!
