We started a new school year today! Zane is in second grade and Claire is in Pre K this year and they are both so excited! They both have super great teachers again this year, which makes school even more fun. Although, Claire would say that painting makes school the most fun. Zane just says he feels older, like a teenager and not like a kid now. I guess that's what happens when you turn 7 and start second grade. :)
I also started back to work today and am happily employed by just one school now. Last week I resigned as a school district employee and am committed full time to the Christian school. I am the secretary there and I love my job! So today, I enjoyed my first day back also.
Besides starting the new school year, both kids have decided to play soccer this fall and have started practices this week. They play in two different age groups and two different teams, so we are very busy! So far, they both really like it and I am glad! Neither one of them have ever shown interest in sports until now. We are eagerly anticipating their first games next weekend. Nana and Papa are coming to visit and staying the night before so we can all attend the games as a family. The day of the games also happens to be Papa's birthday, so we will be celebrating that as well!
Last, but not least, some pictures from the last couple of days.
