Back to School

The kids have been back in school for several months now!
Matter of fact the whole first semester is almost over!

Here are some of the things they've done in school this year...

Alex is in 2nd grade this year & guess what, he has the same teacher as last year! He was so excited when he found out he was going to have Mrs. Martin again. It made for such an easy transition back to school for him!

Addy is in 4th grade this year. 

And this is her teacher, Mrs. Strube.

Here's Addy on the first day of school.

And Alex!

Addy did this on the first day of school. I was cracking up reading it when she brought it home, especially the last answer!

These are from a day when I went to school & ate lunch with the kids.
The kids had Red Ribbon Week back in October. 
Some of the themes this year were...

Spot me being drug free or animal print day.
Addy was thrilled to wear her animal print.

Alex not so much!

Red, white & blue day
Character day

And it wasn't during Red Ribbon week but they also dressed up for 50s day on the 50th day of school!

On election day, the 2nd grade class preformed a musical called Vote. They sang several of the usual patriotic songs.

Plus this one... The Presidential Rap. It was Alex's favorite!

I was presently surprised that Alex actually participated! He was signing (or he said he was just lip singing, but at least his mouth was moving unlike during his Kindergarten graduation) and doing the movements.

Here's his class after the performance.

And some pictures with some of his friends.

On Friday, November 18th Alex had a craft day at school.
The kids rotated between the 2nd grade classroom making several Thanksgiving themed crafts.

Including writing picture stories on paper bags

And making beaded necklaces.

They also made felt bags, spice packs, woven placemats & melted crayons to make candles. 

And in addition to all this fun stuff, of course they've been going to school & learning everyday :)
