Back to School!!!!

Sarah started 4th Grade today & Mason started 1st. They were both excited but sad to see summer end.
I got a kick out of the kids choosing outfits for the first day. Sarah has mulled about it for weeks. Mason on the other hand did eenie-meenie-miney-moe last night to decide his clothes.

Their school likes to do a big welcome back. Today the teachers & other staff were wearing their school shirts & greeting the students with cheers. There was also a DJ playing music to get the kids pumped up about being there.
They were both worn out after school. Sarah does not have too many friends in her class, but I'm sure she'll be fine. Mason has two boys from our neighborhood so he was pretty happy.
Mason had homework to fill a paper bag with three items about himself. Sarah has had this assignment in the past & it took her quite a while to decide her items. Mason today just buzzed around & plopped three items in the bag. Done.
