back to school...

i'm so thankful that the girls didn't have to go back to school until after labor day... it was nice to enjoy the long holiday weekend with them... dinners together, a movie night, and a little last minute school shopping at grove city on monday to round out our weekend...
 
 
maizie started 7th grade and marina started 3rd...
 
big years for both of them...
 
middle school begins in 5th grade and ends in 8th where we live... when i went to school elementary school was through 6th... junior high was 7th and 8th... high school was 9th through 12th...
 
in my mind, 7th grade is where things started to get tricky... feelings easily hurt, clicks formed, drama... we've all been there...
 
my wish for maizie this year...  stay true to yourself... do your best as a student...  be a good listener... and a good friend...  use your best judgement with situations that may come your way...
she had to choose quotes that she felt were a good representation of herself last night for one of her first assignments... she really liked this one by maya angelou...
 
“i've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
 
i couldn't agree more...

my wish for marina... 3rd grade is a time for learning harder things... reading to comprehend... and switching classes... but I don't want you to get so bogged down by those things that you forget to enjoy your day... try to let worry roll off of you... be kind... use manners... and have fun...
gosh... the years go by so fast... especially once they begin school... i love these girls more than anything in the world and i hope and pray that they have a fun year... even when things seem harder than what they're used to... that they stay positive and make lots of happy memories...
