Actually everyone must have been looking forward to the first day because we were ALL up a good hour before normal.
It didn't take long, though, for the whining and bad attitudes to take over. By 9:30 am we were ALL praying and repenting together of our not-so-good morning behavior.
|Miles with his bad attitude, Colsen with his wet and spotted shirt, Rayna being a good sport, and Jinna completely thrilled|
We couldn't seem to find many of our Poplar Streams shirts, so only Jinna Rai and I were wearing them, but we did manage to do the rest of our regular traditions: the night-before Treasure Hunt, apple pie for breakfast, and starting the day with the pledge to the flag.
|Jinna was not a fan of the apple pie idea,|
so she stuck with eggs and rice cake
She did LOVE the Treasure Hunt the night before, though!
|We gathered by the actual Poplar trees near our "stream"|
By 10:00 am, Colsen was already complaining of a finger cramp, one backpack was discovered to be broken, and once pencil case missing.
Pretty sure it will be an interesting year! (And I'm looking forward to it!)
UPDATE: Strider's first day of his senior year!
