School started for my grandkids this week…that means there will be a bit of a slow down for me in the grandkid watching…not a standstill as we are at the halfway spot. Half of the grandkids go to school and half stay home!
On Wednesday of last week, the first day of school pictures came into our family message group.
First was Carver…
Gannon will go to school too but his doesn’t start until the end of this week. Gannon has another year of preschool. For their school kids go to school as 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds.
Then Kindergarten starts. You can see Anders with them. We keep wondering if he’ll walk by the time he hits his 1st birthday.
Then Buck sent pictures of Lucy and Scotty.
Scotty is heading to second grade and Lucy is going into “no grade”. That’s what my Dad used to call kindergarten (no grade). He did that back before preschool was a regular thing.
Next came Georgie’s picture. She is going to preschool a second year like Gannon. This year she switched schools and can ride the bus.
Last year she only had school twice a week…this year, four times a week.
I had to laugh because this was the next picture that came in the message it the group. It was a HAPPY Kelli. For those of you who don’t know, our daughter Kelli is Georgie’s mom. Georgie is a pistol and Georgie going to school was a good thing. We all love her just the way she is but with her big personality, she can be trying. She needs more challenges and school is the perfect place to get that!! HA!! Let’s just hope that she can keep herself together for school.
Georgie steals the show at Kelli’s house so Kelli is looking forward to being about to spend more quality time with her twin boys Eli and Emmett when Georgie is gone.
But wait. There was more. We have another Kramer returning to school. Our daughter Kayla. She is working at a new school and is working in the special education field. This is new for her and she is up for the challenge.
She is still in the same school district…just a different school building. She’s hoping the change will challenge her in a good way.
I always thought I would grow up and be a school teacher. When I lived at home, my mom took one bedroom and made it into a school room. I was the teacher and my nieces and nephews were the students. I have always loved school and learning. No, I didn’t like the social part of school but the learning part I loved.
It was a fun day to see everyone come up in the family message group. It’s always good to see family with happy smiles. If I took a picture of myself, I’d have a happy smile too. It’s just always good to be back to more of a regular routine…school definitely helps provide that!!
Happy school year to you and yours!!
