First Day Of School

I'm so excited that our school district decided to move 6th grade from the middle school into the elementary school this year like many other schools in our county.  I get to have him with me one more year before he goes to the middle school!  Brady on the other hand is not as excited.  He said, "in all the history of this school...they wait until my grade to make this big change!" He was ready to move on.  I'm hoping that our principal mixes it up a bit and gives the 6th graders some extra responsibility in the building to keep it different for them.

Brady was excited and ready to go back to school.  There are two 6th grade teachers and he will go back and forth between the two with science, math, communication arts and social studies.  He will also have music, gym, art, library and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

It's crazy to me that I have a 6th grader.   It seems it was just last year that we were registering him for kindergarten.  He was this little boy in this big scary school.  And now, he is this confident and kind young man that continues to make us proud with the way he conducts himself, the choices he makes and the way he treats others.  Here's to a great school year!

That is really cool that your school did that. I wish ours would, because I can't imagine my baby going to middle school next year! Brady is looking so grown up and handsome. It's fun to know what a great kid he is too. Wishing you both a great school year!!!

Welcome back! I missed you and hearing about your sweet family. Brady is growing up so fast and he certainly is a handsome dude! He'll appreciate Junior High more next year with spending 6th grade elsewhere. He can be big guy on campus this year! Good luck in this new school year!

As a (former) 6th grade teacher, I think they need to be in elementary as well. I do not like 6th grade in the middle schools here in GA!
So handsome and grown!

I agree and wish our school would do that. We end at 5th grade for elementary, and that seems way too young to go to middle school. I hope Brady has a great year, and you too! So glad to see you doing a little bit of blogging. xo

Wow, 6th grade already! Time sure does fly! Glad to see you posting more, I know how hard it is to keep up daily that's why I was thankful for instagram :-) I hope he has a wonderful year!

I love that idea. Zac is in middle school with the big kids,(and some of those 8th graders are really big) its a little scary. Happy new school year!
I just signed on to my blog last night to add a few memories...I really miss it too!

I know you hate for me to tell you how "grown" he looks-- but I have honestly watched him turn from a little boy to a big boy in this picture!

Glad he's still in elementary though... he might "look" big, but he's your baby! I know i will feel the same!
