Back to School 2014!

 School started early here...August 4. Wow. Can't believe it. Breccan is in Mrs. Rudolph's classroom, which we are THRILLED about. And so far, he is loving 3rd grade. That's the first time I think I've ever heard him say how much he loves school. Granted, so far it is because he can: take his shoes off, eat any time he wants to, sit on his desk, etc. All this can happen until they can't handle it! LOL Then all those perks go away. However, I still think he'll have a great year. Mrs. Rudolph has raised three boys and she understands that some times, boys will be boys! LOL Plus she's a fantastic teacher! I love her. Bay still considers her her favorite teacher.
 This year Bay has a new to our school teacher. Mrs. Kahler. We so far love her too! Full of energy, super nice, and loves reading! Bay says she's funny, and that she told them that when they wash their hands, they must use soap and that they weren't to just put their hands under the running water to give the germs on their hands a little swim. BayLea thought that was funny.
 After meet the teacher night, Cousin Roger came by for a short visit. What a nice guy he is. Breccan loved him.


 Roger and his girlfriend, Kellie.


 Of course, my little money hound convinced Roger that he needed help with his bags, and that it was a $1 a bag, and Roger paid him. Unreal!  :)

 Okay, so now it's the morning of the first day of school. It proved to be one of the wettest day on record in Grand Junction, with rain pouring down most of the day.
 3rd Grade.
 5th Grade. My last year having BayLea at my school.  :(


 I always get a picture of the kids under this sign on the first day of school. This year we needed an umbrella.

 And there he is, day one in the intermediate wing of LOM.
 Soccer also started the week school started. BayLea practices from 4:45 - 6:15 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday...

 She's going to learn and grow so much this year.

 And Breccan has practice and player development on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

 I'm excited to see his growth too this year.
It's going to be a busy, busy fall in the Sparks' household!
