As you can see, we're now wearing uniforms to school and we're learning all the other ins and outs of a new school. But Trent is great - he adjusts so easily and having to learn the ropes and make new friends does not phase him a bit. He's excited about having "real desks" - you know, the kind with space underneath to store your books - and, well, I think he's excited about everything actually!
Chase just finished his second week and he's doing great too - just like summer vacation never happened, he's right back in the swing of things.
To encourage good habits with the start of the school year, we had Trent write down his goals for the year - those things he wanted to do on a daily basis to be the best he could be. Unfortunately he wanted me to join in the exercise to show him some examples, so I got roped into doing my own goal list too! Here's what we came up with - you can tell Trent stole some of mine but that's ok.
Hopefully this will be a good example for Trent and teach him not just how to make goals and try to achieve them on a regular basis, but help him create good habits in his days. And to tell the truth, we all need that - even mom!
So here's to a great school year and lots of thanks to God for both getting the boys off on the right foot and giving them amazing classes and schools to be a part of!
