Makes My Monday: Looking for the Letter

Schools in Virginia start a bit later than most. Darren and Sarah aren't scheduled to resume elementary education until after Labor Day.

Even though a trip to the beach, a trip to Grandma's, Papa's 94th birthday and the twins' 9th birthday will all occur before our two cross the third grade threshold in a few weeks, scholarly anticipation is running high.

Who will their teachers be? Will each get who they "want"? Will one get their "hoped for" and not the other? Will they get each other's desired classroom? We're confident it will be a great year....regardless. Last year sure was.
So even though summer has far from given up her last humid gasp, the excitement for the academic---and social---year ahead Makes My Monday.

I'm a firm believer that school really should start after Labor Day. August should always be a vacation month. I'm sure your duo will have another wonderful school year!

It's Michigan law that public schools can't start until after Labor Day so we're in the same boat!

Olivia said...

We'll be starting school later too, but it's hard not to get that school fever when everyone else in the world is starting! I LOVE school supplies, and it's fun to prepare!

Wow, what a cute idea for a blog hop. I will have to come join soon--maybe next week. Yes, I can't believe the summer is ending. We have quite a few parties, etc. lined up before Labor Day too. Oh, these busy days are going by fast. It's nice to meet you!
