First Day of School 2015 – 6th grade and Pre-K
Previous year: 2014
“A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2015.”
Note: I admit to being somewhat of a failure this year when it comes to the 52 week portrait project. I haven’t done a portrait post since the third week in July, and I’m not going to try and backtrack through the past five weeks to catch up. But, I’m ready to start over fresh, and what better week to do it than with the first week back at school?
Here’s to new beginnings for all of us.
Lillia: This week you started sixth grade! I can’t believe I have an official “middle-schooler” in my home now. You were really, really stressed out before the first day of school. You were worried that you wouldn’t know where anything was, that you wouldn’t have anyone to talk to, and that you would be a total failure at Student Council. Thankfully, none of those things came to pass. You are definitely tired, but seem to be pretty happy with your teachers and your new schedule. You said your favorite thing so far has been Spanish class.
Zane: This week you started Preschool/Pre-K. You were very excited to be in the “big kid class” as you seem to have suddenly become enamored with all things related to growing up. You’ll be going five days a week, mostly because of my working but also because you really seem to enjoy school. You love to socialize, and you love to be busy. I have a feeling that you’re going to have a great year.
