Several Firsts!

This has been a busy, exciting and exhausting week. We have several first this week!

#1 ~ Eli started school. He started attending Social Circle Christian School which is the school at our church. He looked so cute in his uniform, book bag, and carrying his lunchbox. His first day was Tuesday; I walked him in and got him settled and he didn’t even care that I left. He had a great day and earned smiley faces all 3 days. We are so proud of him and hope that he continues to enjoy each and every day.

#2 ~ On Wednesday Eli attended Cubbies for the first time. I taught Cubbies last year, but this was Eli’s first time. It went well for the most part. I did have to take him out once and “talk” about why he had to follow the rules. Overall, it was a great experience. He’s already learned his Bible verse for this week. Again, he’s made one happy Mommy & Daddy.

#3 ~ Today was my last day at Liberty for 16 weeks. I will begin my student teaching on Monday and can’t wait. I will be teaching in Social Circle in a 2nd grade class. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time. I can’t wait to experience teaching students and being in a classroom all day.

I’m exhausted from the activities of the week. My body hasn’t adjusted to the getting up earlier and being active all day! Funny how our bodies forget over the summer. I’m sure that next week will be just as tiring, but it will be so fun.
