Well. What a week it has been over here in Terrell world. A few weeks ago I shared with you Lennox’s first day of the last few months of Montessori. We had decided to let Lennox stay at her Montessori school while we sold our house, found a new house and got settled. Our original hope was that she would get into a Charter school in the area, but the two weeks came and went and we didn’t get in. So that idea went out the window – some crushed hopes but it was reality and we moved on.
Lennox started school, her old teacher was back – everything was going along smoothly. Tuesday comes along and ring ring ring goes my phone. It was our top choice school calling telling us they had someone not show up for the school year and Lennox’s name was next on the list! We couldn’t say yes fast enough! Honestly, a week into it – I still can’t believe she got in.
So we hustled around to notify her current school, find aftercare, buy supplies (which by the way is super hard 2-3 weeks into school), buy uniforms and get ready! Then came Monday night and the night before Kindergarten!
I don’t think any of us could believe it was time for Lennox to head to her new school and Kindergarten! Wasn’t she just born a few days ago?
We redid her first day of school photos – because you know – I have to! She was just a tad excited!
Of course she wanted a picture with Daddy…
Before we headed out the door and to her new school. She walked in like the biggest girl around, met her new teacher, saw her new room and then said a quick goodbye and never looked back! It’s about the cutest thing when I see her trot down the sidewalk in the morning and into the school – all on her own. She is growing up so quickly!!
Here’s to a great year and hopefully a great 12 years at her new school!
Yesterday should have been Lennox’s first day at public kindergarten but we are in the (crazy) process of getting our house on the market and eventually moving. Since we’ll be moving to a different town we decided to leave Lennox in her Montessori school for a few more months. She spends so much time there and her little world is going to change so much, that keeping something constantly the same (school), was a good idea that my dad came up with. Thanks Dad!
So yesterday, even though she goes to Montessori year round, was an exciting day for Lennox. Her teacher from last year (who has been on Maternity leave since February), was back and Lennox could not wait to get to school and see her! This year she is the big kid in class, and gets to be a class leader to help out the littles.
We saved the traditional back to school photos for when she starts public kindergarten later this year, but I just had to snap a few pictures before she headed out the door – as she looked extra cute and excited!
Here’s to a great few last months of Montessori where she can “stretch her mind” (as her teacher says), and learn so much! Soak in the goodness Lennox, we sure will miss Montessori once we leave!
Back to School season is creeping up quickly on all of us. Some parents are probably counting down to the days, while others are hoping that summer slows down so they can do everything on their summer bucket list. Us? We are just waiting and waiting to see what exactly is going to be happening this fall with Lennox. Her schooling is still up in the air (more on that later).
In the meantime, here are some of my Ultimate Back to School Printables to get you ready for the First Day of School!
