what I missed: first days

So while I was off in Baltimore, I missed the first days of school (big kids on Mon and little kids on Wed). These are pictures my mom took of them (thanks mom!).

Abigail's first day of 6th grade

Isaac's first day of 4th grade

Samuel's first day of 1st grade

And Elisabeth's first ever day of Preschool

I was very sad to miss these firsts but they all did great, as we knew they would. I left them notes to read before and after their big days and I hope they liked that. It made me feel better, at any rate. :)
It is still a struggle having Samuel at a different school and I am still a little lost with that. I need to get in touch with his teacher and find out a whole bunch of stuff. And he's gone from 8:15 in the morning until about 4:15 in the afternoon which is just a long time. But he's been doing pretty well with it, I think. Anyway.
Elisabeth is absolutely loving Preschool (as am I, I might add).
And Abigail and Isaac seem to be doing well so far. Isaac was pretty stressed out for a week or so - but I think he's learning to pace himself (although he did wake up at 5:30 AM (instead of usual 7) completely on his own yesterday eager to get everything done "early." Good grief, boy).
Anyway - things are going alright, I guess.
And there's that. :)
