During August and September we had quite a few "firsts."
It all started with the first day of school! We are trying out a new school this year. Unfortunately, we had too many bad experiences with last year's school and I felt like I had no choice but to find a good charter school in the area. Well, find a good one I did. The kids love it and I love it.
Tabby began 2nd grade and Rex began kindergarten.
Then it was Ella's first day of preschool! Before the school year began, I told her new teacher to brace herself for Hurricane Ella. Her teacher is quite good though and Ella adjusted to classroom life in no time.
Ella also had her first dance class. After years of watching her big sister go to dance, it was finally Ella's turn. Ella has already displayed her passion for dance around the home. Anything with a beat to it gets her movin'. She puts a little too much bootie in it if you ask me so I'm happy to have her in a class to help her get a little more"direction."
And finally, Rex started flag football!
Check out his intimidating face. I'm sure the other team was terrified.
This pic doesn't say much. I just thought it was cute.
He would not keep that danged mouth guard in! Every shot I have shows it hanging out!
He did really great, lasted in the heat, and had a lot of fun. I loved that at the end of the game, not one of the boys asked what the score was. All they wanted to know was what kind of snack they were getting.
For the record we got 2 touchdowns and a safety. The other team got 3 touchdowns. We were beat by 4 points.
Although, the opposing team had an awesome little girl who outran everybody and scored all three of their team's goals. Can't be mad at the girl power.
