Kindergarten and First Grade

Can you even believe that my kids are in school already?

Yup. Little Emily is in kindergarten. She started last week. And Allison is in first and yesterday marked her first day of her third week.

We chose the year round school option for the girls here in North Carolina. Which means that instead of one large summer break - they get their breaks throughout the year. I have heard good things about this school schedule and I am hoping we like it!

I have been largely absent from my blog with the moving, unpacking, organizing, etc. And I am desperately trying to get my shop going again. It seems I pretty much fell off of the map with not listing for so long.

Not to mention that as soon as I pick up the girls from school, I am trying to fit in summer activities - like swimming for example. After all, it is still summer. They may be in school, but it is still summer.

I hope to be around and catch up on all your wonderful blogs soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Starting school probably helps you settle in faster though, so that's great!

We did the year round schedule for a few years and as a stay at home mom, it worked out fine. I would think it would be tough for working parents though.

Emily is cracking me up in that picture! I hope they're enjoying their new school and making lots of new friends. And I hope you soon get settled so you can relax a bit. You deserve it, girl.

Love you.

And look how sweetly you have them dressed too! Lovely. You'll have to keep us updated on how this schedule works- I've often wondered!

So glad to hear from you! Wow. The girl's are getting so big! The year round school with longer breaks sounds like an interesting option. Let us know how you do with that. I am in the process of making some major changes over here. If I am going to stay here on SI, I am probably changing J's school from public to Montessori for so many reasons...Glad to see you are adjusting to your move. Thinking of you and sending love. -Cyndy
