Meet the Teacher...

I don't know how it happened, but I now have two fourth graders! I also don't know how my summer flew by so quickly, but it did. The girls and I were talking tonight over dinner and we went back over all of the wonderful things that we did this summer. Here is a brief recap:
~ Two week trip to Sue-Sues which included a beach trip. They had so much fun!
~ They attended an awesome VBS at the big Baptist church that we do alot of our activites
~ The next week they attended the same churches sports camps...Madeline did cheerleading and Meredith did Basketball
~ We had a wonderful family beach trip to Gulf Shores. We enjoyed lazy days by the beach and pool!
~ They went on their very first overnight camp experience. They attended Twin Lakes for an entire week and had a blast! They can't wait to go back next year.
~ They went to VBS with a neigborhood friend! FUN!
~ Last but certainly not least, we moved and they have been having a blast playing with all of their new friends.

As you can see, we had a fabulous summer. The classroom is calling again though and it is time to start studying those multiplication and division facts....eek! Homework, spelling words, carpools, and the soccer field are about to be on the agenda. I am ready ( I think)! This afternoon we went to the school 'Meet the Teacher' night. Madeline and Meredith are in different classes and each one has at least 3 friends in their room. Madeline is even in the same class as our new next door neighbor. I think it is going to be a FABULOUS year. I felt such a sense of peace being back at this school. So, get ready everyone for those first day of school pictures. It is time for me to blow the dust off my camera that I have been neglecting for the longest time. My little girls are not so little anymore. They are about to embark on a year full of adventure and fun! I am praying that they will learn and grow not just intellectually, but they will cultivate sweet and compassionate spirits and be a shining light in their respective classes!!! HAPPY BACK TO SCHOOL everyone! :)
