First day of school for Connor & Isla

I'm pretty sure the summer went by at warp speed this year. Or maybe it just went by fast because I didn't blog it? Perhaps because I have four children to keep me busy? Or even perhaps because it is FAR TOO SHORT? Anyway, somehow it happened. And here we find ourselves at August 12th, the first day of school. 

Connor started fourth grade. His teacher was Isla's first grade teacher. Good thing I liked her! It feels a bit like when he started first grade and went from half day to full day. Fourth grade loses a recess and the other one is shorter. They also have a bigger class sizes. Big changes, I guess. And Connor came home telling of how fourth graders are now the little kids at recess, whereas last year, they were the big kids at recess. A whole new world, I tell you. But at least Connor is setting his sights above working at the local diner. He settled on saying surgeon, but he is also considering astronaut, lawyer and train conductor. He's keeping his options open at the ripe ole age of nine ;)

Isla, on the other hand, has been sticking with wanting to be an artist for a while now. She got the teacher she was hoping for. And ironically, both Connor and Isla's teachers have the same last name. However, Isla's bestie isn't in her class, so there were some bummed feelings about that. But, they are sitting in groups of four in her new class, and she is friends with everyone in her group. So all is not bad in the world. Of course, with Isla it never is. 

Then there is Callum. Poor guy was fully convinced he was headed to school today. He grabbed his backpack and wore it to the kids school. He even set it down outside Isla's class like all the other kids. Saying he was disappointed to not be staying is an understatement. But he gets to start preschool in a couple weeks and I know he is going to love long as he doesn't hit his new preschool friends with sticks and throw sand in their faces. 

I swear, time just keeps going faster and faster the older they get and I'm really not liking it. I am loving the people they are becoming and the relationship I am developing with them, but the thought of them leaving already gives my heart palpitations and that is years off still.

But first day of school went great!
