Upon our arrival to WA the start of school was imminent. K drew the shortest straw, so she got to begin her school day first. Ha! Not really. She had to be to school earlier...so naturally, I took her first. And let me just say, they have her school set up like a well oiled machine....before I could even snap any more pictures, she was whisked off with a couple of student helpers. Quite honestly, I think that worked out really well. It didnt give her any time to fret.
Next up? J. I was very pleasantly surprised to walk into his new classroom and find that there were far fewer kids in his class. Thats always a great thing. I was able to snap a shot of him while we were in his classroom before all the kids began to rush in.
But right after that shot? I was totally not surprised to find that he was surrounded by girls when I turned my back for one minute....sadly, I wasnt able to capture that before I was being introduced to the teacher and given paper after paper to fill out.
After a full first day of school it was fun to see that K and S both have to have special clearance to navigate their way around their separate buildings.
Im happy to report that after one full week of school the kids are doing fabulously. They have acclimated so well to their new classes and classmates. I am so happy and proud. This makes me smile very, very big.
And to celebrate this...we decided to go exploring. And we found this really big mountain. Okay, well it was big to us, anyway!
And look. I wont ever have to worry about running out of sage in my spice drawer ever again.
So, we went up,
We didnt make it to the top before we decided to head back down tho. We will have to save that for another day.
The little guy got tuckered out....if you can believe it.
