first day...

Thursday, August 18, 2011

The first day of our new school year went really well.  Even though Grace had a bit of a cold, she was a trooper and made it through her first full school day (last year she went half days for kindergarten).
Oh my!  She was so excited to be in first grade. And even though there was a bit of nervousness for some of my kiddos regarding the new school year, they were pretty excited, as well.

We always start the school day, with an opening time that emphasizes our school goals:  Honor, Service and Vision. Uncle Brett used to be a youth pastor and does a fabulous job conveying these goals.  This photo was taken after the K-3 students left for their classroom.

Games to build unity...

John Mark is one of our awesome volunteers. We are so incredibly blessed to have some of the young men and women (and parents and grandparents) from our church volunteer at the school.

Okay, so this photo of my class doing a little bit of computer work is probably not the most exciting one that I could have taken, but doesn't the young lady in the front of the photo look particularly studious (love you, Yana!)?!
My class of nine girls, 4th grade and up, is going to be so much fun!
