And just like that, another fun filled (moving filled) summer ends & a brand new school year begins. This year is going to be an adventure for my kids because we're in a new country with new schools. Luckily, there are schools on base here & the DODEA are supposed to have fabulous teachers so we're really excited.
After our whirlwind in Paris, we went to meet all their new teachers & poor Canyon fell asleep as his teacher was introducing herself. Silly boy.
They were all SO excited to jump on the bus the morning of the first day. Canyon is a 1st grader this year & is at a school all by himself again. He's a pro at it now.
Craiger is in 3rd grade this year & will be going to the same school as Bladen.
Bladen is in his very last year of elementary school this year as a 5th grader. He goes to the same school as Craiger.
Miss Taya starts her adventure in middle school this year as a 6th grader. She's been a little nervous about middle school, having multiple teachers/classes, & then being all by herself in a big school. She's SO brave, she's going to do great.
This year is Lorien's first year of High School. She's a freshman this year, starts Seminary before school with Cadence, & is tackling some HARD classes. She is excited to finally be in a school that has a string orchestra for her to play cello in & she's starting her first AP class this year as well. She's going to be amazing.
And Cadence is a Junior this year. She reminded me on the first day of school that I only have one more year of "1st day of school pictures" with her. Way to make me cry baby girl!!!! I can't believe she's a JUNIOR. She is excited to have Lorien in her early morning seminary classes, loves playing oboe in advanced band, has 2 HARD AP classes this year, & is in the SAME German class with her sister. I think it's hilarious that they have the same class, same teacher, same period. At least they can do homework together.
We have the cutest little bus stop in our village. The kids love riding the bus together (all ages ride the same bus). Canyon loves having a little extra time with his big sisters each day.
It's going to be a great school year. I just know the Potter kids are going to do GREAT THINGS.
