We are three weeks into the school year today, Waverly is in Second Grade + Avalon in PreK! So far it’s been a pretty easy transition, they are both returning to the same school as the year before, so lots of old friends, familiar faces + similar routines. I am so thankful for that, it is always such a bittersweet time of year!
They both love school, Waverly’s favorite subject is PE, she loves it almost as much as she loves picking out her outfits each night. 😉 She is always so energetic about everything, she wants to be involved in every activity + spirit day, and spends a lot of her evenings playing school with her dolls or sisters and teaching them everything she learned during the day. Avalon is always more shy about meeting teachers or new friends in class, but once she knows them, she LOVES them. Her favorite activities are movement + recess, and is already so good at writing her name and drawing us the sweetest little pictures after school (always with blue + green + orange, her very favorite colors).
I am never ever one to wish time away, but I am already getting excited to see both my big girls together at school next year. I know how much Waverly will take care of Avalon and how sweet it will be to have them at the same school together, for the first time.
And I have to mention little Remie Rue, who is with a new sitter, my mom + mother-in-law during the week while I am at school! She is super nervous with new people, and in perfect timing has been popping two new teeth at the same time — so it has definitely been the hardest transition of all three girls. But goodness I LOVE reuniting with her each afternoon. Before long she will be holding up her own school sign so I am just soaking in these sweet little baby days with her, even when they sometimes involve a lot of tears.
Happy new school year to my baby girls, we love you soooooo much + are so, so proud! XO
