FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL


Home from vacation one day and on to the first day of school! Jett started the 3rd grade and Luke started kindergarden. We actually have them at 2 different schools, which is a headache, but a decision we feel good about. They are both all in spanish but their teachers each speak some English too. Jett's spanish is really good and his accent is far better than mine. We just kinda threw Luke into to all day kindergarden in Spanish but feel confident that he will pick it up fast. In Luke's class there are only 8 other kids, including his best friend Manuel so we feel like he will really get a lot of one on one attention from the teacher. They both reported that they had a fantastic first day and made lots of friends. I mean who doesn't love a little gringo in their class?

WOW! I can't believe Luke is in kindergarten too and Jet in 3rd grade. Holy cow! That will be so awesome for them to be in all Spanish classes. We are hoping to get Evan into preschool this year, but we might wait one more year. We miss you and it sounds like you're doing good. Good luck with Luke wiping his butt at school. HA HA

Hey mama, you are getting old.jk
Boys look good. I din't know you were going to be gone so long. So cool. Good luck for the school year and your new calling. Hey get back with me on the airport you use-just leave on my blog. I have a week off in October so I am thinking maybe then. Let me know so I can get with Tamy. Take Care

Oh my goodness, they are growing up SO fast! John is just now starting to teach the girls a little Spanish. Lauren will probably be the only one he really teaches...
Ashley has a new friend from El Salvador that speaks Spanish all the time....maybe she will pick some up from her....
I'm just jealous (but not enough to actually learn)...I wish I knew what my in-laws were saying....:)
