First Day of School!

Friday was Juliana's first day of school and she was SO excited. The night before she could not sleep and was up at 5:30 in the morning ready to go. She wanted to ride the bus but I had to talk with the bus driver to see where and when she would pick her her up so we all took her. It was a little strange being at home with just the younger 2. It felt like I had more free time but I didn't really. What I had was more individual time with my youngsters. It was a nice change that I have been looking forward to, but also sad as we said goodbye to our 3rd grader.
I went to pick her up and she was all smiles. The teacher had walked her out of school and talked with me for a few minutes and said that she did really good! I really like her teacher and am so thankful that she got her for her first school experience here. We definitely have a social butterfly on our hands as we went to the store afterwards and she saw someone she just met today and she was waving and saying hi like she was a long lost friend :)
Since I picked her up, she has been talking non stop about her day. While we were at the school I talked with the bus driver and Juliana wanted to get on it and ride it home instead of coming with me. I hope she continues to keep up her enthusiasm for school!
What a great blessing as we were a little worried how things would go for her, but I think she will do just fine!

I'm so glad you posted about Juliana's first day! I was going to call you and ask how it went - so happy it went well! And, 3rd Grade - sounds like she is right where she is supposed to be!

As a third grade teacher, I am just eating up these details of Juliana's back to school experience and praying her third grade year continues to build sweet memories like her first day did. Third grade was my very best year and my former students all agree that it was hands down their favorite too...so things should really fall into place this year in a great way! Yay for Juliana and yay for back to school!!

It's been a while since I have been able to catch up on blog-stalking so I had quite a few entries of your to read. Sounds like all is going well. LOVE the name Juliana, and she looked so excited in front of the school. I'm so happy for you guys and hope her school year goes great. Enjoy your extra time with the other two. Soon, they will be going to school, too.

So exciting! She looks so cute in her pictures!

We take Samuel to register for school tomorrow. We aren't sure if he will go straight into first grade or back into kindergarten, but he is so excited. I think they must be excited to finally be out around children their own age (your siblings are only so cool when you are little).

I am so glad to hear that everything went so well for Juliana!!!

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
