Summer is Officially OVER!!!
His bags are all packed and he is now fast asleep. His clothes are all laid out and ready to go. Tomorrow my little boy starts 5th grade!!! I can't believe he is in the 5th grade already! What is even harder to wrap my brain around is that when Jackson starts Kindergarten, Austin will be going into High School!!!
We had our orientation last Thursday and Austin met his teacher. Since he attends a small private school he already knew who she was, but being able to hear her talk about what they are going to do this year put him at ease. I think he is looking forward to getting back to see his friends but he is also sad to leave Jackson.
We are looking forward to the year ahead. Cub Scouts will start up again in a few weeks and he is going to be awarded his Hiking Stick at their first meeting of the year. He has hiked over 50 miles to earn this achievement and is very excited. They began working on this when he was in the 3rd grade and he has gotten several medallions for his hiking stick from the many National Parks that we have visited recently and is looking forward to adding them on!
Well-- I better get to bed. That alarm is going to go off early in the morning!! But now maybe I can post all of those vacation photos on here and catch you up on everything we did this summer!!!
