Well it happened. Conversations that Micki and I had 6 years ago. It would be a long time. First learn how to walk. Then talk. [Not a problem there]. Then potty-training. Writing. Reading. Math. Pre-school. Daycare. Kindergarten. And now, first grade. All day. Monday-Friday. No daycare. All school. Friends. A great teacher. A great school. The dreams are a reality now.
After we helped the Clevengers and they helped us, we finished the classrooms and headed home. Monday was Micki’s open house. Tuesday, was the first grade open house for our little G. It was awesome. She has Mrs. Valentine, and we’re privileged. If Mrs. Clevenger was the godmother of Kindergarten, Mrs. Valentine is the godmother of 1st grade. Grace is in a class of around 20 kids. About 15 of them she knows, is friends with, and goes to church with! It’s almost like Sunday School every day!
Grace and Stacy at the open house. Ready for action!
We stayed for a bit because Grace’s friends kept coming in. G was helping the other kids with their orientation, showing them their desks, pencil boxes, and nametags. Our little helper. And we were enjoying hanging out with the other parents. It was a fun time. The first day/first week post is coming soon, so look for it. But if the open house was any indication of how the year is going to go, we are in for a great one.
