he is starting his last year at cha, a school he has attended for 9 years. he is big man on campus, literally. he has grown 6 1/2 inches over the last year. he is starting his final year of swim team for our church next week. he has mastered a few songs on the drums. it's actually nice to hear him play. he is adding volleyball to his sport list this year. he made a goal to try something new at school. he is at a middle school retreat until tomorrow.
he is starting his first year of middle school. he has his own locker (i hope he remembers the combination). he will have electives for the first time. he got to try out the new ipads in his class. he will start wearing glasses in the next few weeks - after we order them. he grew 3 and 3/4 inches over the last year. he refused to get his haircut any shorter. he enjoys watching the republican national convention and giving side comments. he is at a middle school retreat until tomorrow.
she is part of the lower school now. she has lunch in the cafeteria and plays on the big yard. she has her own desk. she loves her new grey high tops. she adores her teacher. she is greeted by every teacher, and a lot of students, as she makes her way up to class. she is going to dinner with me and bobby tonight - her choice. she gave me homework on the first day.
they are excited about the coming year. they are having a hard time adjusting to the new schedule - we all are. they are all at carpool together which makes it so much easier for me. they love listening to the same songs in the car and sing out loud occasionally. they love going to the same school.
