2011-2012 School Year Starts NOW

DID NOT WANT TO SEND MY GIRLS BACK!  Never do!  But I did, and to say they love it would be an understatement.  We always do our research and request the best teachers…..  Me being SO very involved in the schools (Much to the schools disapproval) I always manage to get the teacher I requested!


So these were the girls last year!  I thought they looked grown up then…. 

(These dang years are passing too quickly)


And this is the girls this year!  Uggggg.  Why are they so pretty…..


Aubrey started first grade as one of the 3 best readers from the previous school year and Autumn started school ready to catch up from a checked out teacher from her last semester…..

Autumn is in 4th grade and has 2 teachers that she swaps with at mid-day.  She loves that. 


Annsley starts school about 2 weeks after the girls and was excited to get Ms. Lori after Aubrey had her.  This is her last year in preschool and she’s really looking forward to “Real” school next year!

Annsley’s a ham…  She will stand there and let me take pictures and I love it.


And then she will be finished and get this look on her face like maybe she’s questioning my sanity…


So far this year has been the best ever!  It just keeps getting better and better for the girls. 

Autumn has exceeded every goal she set for herself and has really amazed us.  She has done fantastic this year!  Most importantly, she’s not struggling to understand her school work this year.  (Owe that to great teachers) She is over the bullying that went on and on last year and now onto wondering why kids try so hard to be popular.  She see’s this everyday and feels it is a lesson on why it’s important to impress only God and not fit in because God created her to stand out!   She impresses me everyday with her wisdom and maturity on this!  (And crazy enough, she’s popular because of this!)

Aubrey continues to be a top student and reader in her class.  It’s unusual for her to come home with a paper that has anything less that a 100 grade and a chapter book from the library.  She’s loving reading, GT and P.E.  She has the best principal I have ever known of and the most creative P.E teacher.  Her classroom teacher is shy and quite but is amazing and really expects and demands a lot of Aubrey!  (That’s a good thing!)


Annsley also got some smarts.  Her teacher tells me quite a bit how advanced Annsley is vs. the other kids.  (I blame this on Autumn for playing school with her everyday!) Annsley can write her entire name, add, subtract and can divide just about anything in her head.  Apparently she is the best with scissors and the most creative!  Annsley still gets caught up in wanting to do just like her best friend Olivia but I think that’s ok for now.  They will be in different classes next year and I’m looking forward to seeing Annsley have to make decisions on her own and not just do what Olivia does.
