We have a child in school! Carson is attending Pre-K at Scobee Elementary. He goes every day from 7:45 until 10:45 a.m. We're glad we're active duty military so he can do this program!
The night before school started, we had a special back-to-school dinner. We talked about goals for the school year and recorded them on their name cards. Carson's goals are: learn multiplication and division (totally his idea), practice the piano every day without getting frustrated, and to make friends with everyone in his class. Everett's goals are to finish his whole workbook, to learn to read, and to cooperate in pre-school. (He and three other kids will do a co-op once a week where us moms will teach.) Faye's goals are to potty train and to learn to pray. My goals are to take good care of the new baby, finish decorating the house, and to not ever yell at the kids. And Rick... well, he will just keep working and sleeping a couple of hours a day.

Carson wasn't nervous at all for the first day. Although he didn't sleep much the night before! He loves schedules and structure and is just happy to be in school. Doesn't he look handsome! I should comb my kids' hair more often.

|Carson's teacher, Mrs. Bellah, asks him if he can find his name. I am curious to see when or if she discovers that he can actually read chapter books!|
|We have heard she is a great teacher!|
|Faye wonders why she got yanked out of bed to come to this strange new place.|
