It's hard to believe that school is starting back Monday. Wasn't it just yesterday I spent the last week of school with Makayla. Helping with parties, AR carnival, and then watching her walk across the stage for her awards. Not to mention Michael graduating from High School. Time is slipping by way too fast. We need to savor every moment of it. Makayla and I went to open house yesterday to meet her teacher. She wanted to hold my hand walking down the hall, and I asked her, do you think that's okay? Your going to the 4Th grade now. But then we saw her BFF in front of us and he was holding his Mom's hand. There we were the four of us looking at the lists to find what class they were in. Strange you find your child's name, then you look at the rest of the list to see what names you recognize from previous years. You want them to know at least one person in their class. But yet not one they will get in trouble with. In her class is several of the girls from the two previous years that she's been at this school. But her bff is not in there. I thought he was going to cry. Makayla took it in stride, didn't bother her at the time. It might later on, but I looked over at him and his Mom was consoling him and he actually looked like he was going to cry.
We met her teacher and she seems to be very nice, quite like me, so we didn't have a lot to talk about. Then we visited previous teachers. Her second grade teacher is the one that was expecting twin boys and has lost one of them. She has six weeks until her due date, so please keep her (Yvette) in your prayers. Also found out her health teacher (Bethany) from that year is pregnant having a girl in October. She was just glowing yesterday. I told her we had no idea.
So today we're off shopping. Why do we wait until the last minute to school shop? Well this year it seems to have just slipped up on us. But not sure what other states does it. But this is TAX-FREE WEEKEND in GA. So most stores are having awesome sales. We will soon find out.
