The first day at a new school was met with a lot of nervous energy. The kids stood a little closer and have clung a little tighter lately.....happy to report that are adjusting beautifully as we had hoped. They are fine and enjoying being back among many, many wonderfully supportive teachers and friends. There are about 80 new kids joining them, so they are all getting aquainted together quite nicely.
He's a 5th grader now and with that comes new opportunities to become involved in new things. He's part of the brass unit in the band and can't wait to learn a few new notes and tunes. It's a huge responsibility for Matthew to carry this instrument. He could not be more proud! Dad was an elementary school player himself, so we will challenge him to remember a few notes :)
I'll end with my favorite "Quote of the Week"
"Mom, I made a new friend"......."His name is McCarthy"
----Zak 3rd Grader
That just warms my heart!!
have a great weekend and thanks for visiting me!
