School Days

School started today! When I was growing up, we had almost three months of summer vacation, but those days are gone with the wind. The only entire month the kids have off now is July. Dara and Anne Marie both started new schools today! Anne Marie is now in middle school and Dara started grade school. Jazz is still in pre-school. 



We went over after school today to talk with them about their first day.


When Anne Marie graduated from grade school, she made this biography page to put on the auditorium bulletin board.

“Show me how you work, God; School me in your ways.”
Psalm 25

Love the photos of your sweet grandchildren Ginny, and the one with you and the girls is also lovely :) Anne Marie did a fine job on her biography page. Great series of photos, a bench I would love in our garden and cute yard ornaments too. Amazing that school has started already. In our area I believe it is August 28th. I always remembered it was in September when our son attended but that was many years ago. How time flies!

Wishing all of your beautiful girls a great school year. I remember those long Virginia summers. We always went back to school the Monday after Labor Day.

Best,
Bonnie

my mind is trying to wrap around the fact Anne Marie is in Jr High. yowsa how time flies and all three of them look so cute and sweet and so does grandma... we had 3 months off to. but the only days during the school year we were off, were 5 major holidays. now they have so many days off they have to make them up. we had Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July, Labor Day

It seems strange to me to start school in August -- it's still very hot and humid during the day. But I suppose schools are air-conditioned these days. I hope the girls all have a wonderful school year.

Can't believe it's that time already! Your sweet girls are growing up so fast!

That is a great picture of you and your sweet granddaughters, Ginny. It's hard to believe it's school time again. I remember when I was in school we started after Labor Day and got out of school at the end of May. I hope your grands enjoy their time at school this year.

Precious little ones! I love the poster. That will be something to keep and treasure.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

She did a great job on her poster. Mine go back next week. We did get a little over two solid months off.

Ann Thompson said...

Wow, they start back early. I rhink they go back the 28th here.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Back to school already? Here we don't go back till September 5th.I'm sure your girls will enjoy school and do well.

Rose said...

So hard to believe Anne Marie is old enough to be in middle school.
