It is that time of year again – the first day of school.  It is hard to believe that Laura moves up to West Middle School and sixth grade.  Since it is no longer cool that I get pictures in front of the school, I settled for a picture in front of our house…

…and one of her walking towards the bus stop.

We did take John to school today and I got the typical first day pictures.

John is in Fourth Grade this year and Unit C.  The assembly portion of the opening day of school was much shorter for us.  Unit C leaves the gym first as a group.  I did manage to get a picture of John hanging with his friends before they left for their classrooms.

John had a great first day of fourth grade and Laura had a tiring first day of middle school.  She had a bit of a meltdown related to being tired and feeling the stress of change, but she calmed down after some relaxation time.  Let’s hope tomorrow goes better for her!
