First Day 2015


I'm happy to report that after 8 LONG days the teacher's union and our district came to a contract agreement and our five oldest children are back in school. They were all more than ready to get back and hit the books. I've not really blogged for so long I feel like I need to update a bit on the kids. I hope you don't mind. This year Owen, Audrey and Oliver are still in the same elementary school together. They're so cute.

Oliver is in first grade. He's so excited to be at school all day this year and to have the opportunity to play with Audrey during recess. He loves Legos and riding his bike. I'm happy for him but am so sad to have him gone all day. He's a great boy.


Audrey is in second grade. She was nervous on the first day because she didn't really know the other children in her class. Here's the great thing about Audrey though, she made up her mind to be as happy and friendly as she could be and she has bloomed where she was planted. She loves playing with her BFF Kate and holding her baby sister.


Owen is in fifth grade. He has a teacher that is new to our school this year and has really loved his class so far. Summer break was so fun because Owen is hilarious and he brightened up everyday with his sense of humor. He likes making funny movies with his friends and "adventuring".


Abigail is in eighth grade. I'm not going to lie, I wish I could keep her home with me all year. She is such a wonderful help and she's just so pleasant to have around. She's currently running cross country. Middle school is weird but she's handled it so well thus far. My fingers are crossed we get through her last year unscathed. Abby spent the summer reading the Harry Potter series for the 3rd time.

Easton is in his sophomore year. It's hard to believe he's that old. Come January he'll be 16, driving and dating. It can be tricky mothering teenagers but Easton has been pretty easy on me so far. He's such an obedient child- always has been. He tries hard in school and is running cross country so his days are long and full. He spent his summer driving me around town and reading anything he could get his hands on. We've always told our kids they can have a cell phone when they turn 16 so he's pretty excited about that. Honestly, I am too. It will be nice to be able to send him a quick text during the day when I see or read something that I know he would appreciate. He's gone for 10 hours everyday and that's too long for my mother heart.

  1. Such a sweet idea to keep in touch with "thinking of you" texts. I'm going to try that instead just texting "to do's" and schedules.
