First Day Of School

Chase started the sixth grade today! He had a good day and was happy to see all of his friends. He got two wonderful teachers so I'm sure he will have a great year. I can't believe he is almost in Jr. High! Wow! Time is just flying by...


Have a great Tuesday!

He's getting so big, Kristen...and he is as handsome as ever! My little grandson (although I can't call him little any more) started 5th this year and I went over to see him get on the bus. One day he will be driving to school and thinking I'm silly to come over to see him pull out of the driveway! lol Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

We start next Monday, Kristen will be in 5th grade, can't believe she's starting middle school next year! We find out who her teacher is on Thursday night.
I hope all the kids have a great year.

Sixth grade is such a great time! And a great time to feel. No worries about the worries or a few years later and all. He is such a handsome young man! Gee he will knock all the girls socks off! (he prolly already is!) xx

Oh, Kristen, Chase is grown! He's so cute and it's really hard to think school is already starting! I do remember my kids first days of school - they were just so excited!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kristen, he's growing into such a young man. My grandson starts the 6th grade next week as well. Where does the time go to?
hugs ~lynne~

WOW, Chase is so tall...boy did he shoot up this summer! He is so handsome. My girl's think he is CUTE!! ;) We don't go back till Sept. 7th. I hope he has a great year! =) XO ~LIZ

Seems like the summer went by so fast. I think each year it gets faster and faster! =o)
How cute is he! Is 6th grade not part of jr high in your area? Here grades 6th-8th is considered middle or jr high school.
I hope he has a wonderful year!
