Back to School

This week was a big week in the Jackson household for all members. Isaac and Will both started school this week - hooray! After much stress and working with the principal, the superintendent, and more, Isaac is officially enrolled at Hershey Early Education Center (the school district's Kindergarten). His teacher is Miss Smith and he is LOVING it! Aside from having something to do each morning and getting out of the house, the highlight for him is getting to ride the bus to school. He always gets on the bus with the biggest grin.

Will's first day of school was Tuesday (he goes Tuesday and Thursday and wants to go every day...and ride the bus like Isaac). He goes to Hilltop Christian Nursery School and it's a really cute school. On his first day, he was up and ready with backpack, jacket, and shoes about 2 hours before he had to be there.

Kasia's life has changed as well - she now gets mommy all to herself a couple mornings a week. Not to mention free reign over all the toys without any big boys telling her what to do or attempting to wrestle with her.

Billy and I are thoroughly enjoying the peace and quite that comes with having the boys gone.


Isaac's first day of school.


Getting on the school bus. I wish you could see his face but I didn't want to be the annoying mom that's slowing down the bus so I could take pictures.


Will's first day of school. I know he looks grouchy but he wanted me to take pictures of his "mad face". He was actually really happy.

I love that Will wanted to show his tough guy side. What a cutie. I bet you are loving life right now. How is class going?

You need to post a picture of your new place so that we can see what it looks like! (otherwise I'll actually have to come up and visit)

Sarah, I don't know how you have time to do anything these days! We had a good laugh after hearing about Will's first morning at school ("only God makes friends"). Too cute. We miss you guys, love you all, Ann

Hope things are going well for you guys. We miss you guys tons. It is great to be able to keep in touch through the world wide web. Sounds like the boys are having fun. I love Kaisa's toes - I can barely wait to have my own little girl to dress up. I hope you are feeling well and that school is going well too. I wish I could go back to school, maybe I'll get a Masters someday. Best Wishes.
