First Day of 7th Grade

Shayla could not have been happier about starting school yesterday. Long gone are the days of easy classes, taking flowers to teachers and of course to having the girls pose together for pictures. I sure do miss those glorious days!

She has a brutal schedule with no study halls, three honors classes and another one she's taking for high school credit, but I'm positive she will work hard and will do just fine.

We'd like to think she was anxious to get right to 7th grade for the learning, but we all laughed about that knowing she really just wanted to be with her friends after a long summer break.
Here's wishing everyone a safe, healthy and happy new school year!

My God, she is stunningly beautiful! I've never met your family, but I've followed your blog for years. It is lovely to read about your family adventures and to watch Shayla grow into such an amazing young woman.

Best of luck with 7th grade!

Wow, what a beautiful young lady she has grown into. They grow up so fast, but I'm sure her Mama and Daddy are just brimming with pride!!!

Cheers to a wonderful family and a great year :-)

What a beautiful young woman Shayla is developing into. When she stands next to mom she looks just like you, but then sitting with dad...looks like him as well. What a beautiful combination of you both! All the best. Thinking of you all and remebering Christi.
