Here is the Reynolds Nation, on their first day of school yesterday. Esther and Caleb are entering second grade, Bryn is in eighth grade and William started Kindergarten! They were all ready to start school...lots of eager faces and happy smiles. This is our ninth year homeschooling...which is such a blessing and an honor. There is nothing like teaching your kids at home...to see their discoveries and exploration. Judah, couldn't be left out. He thought that he was starting school yesterday, too. So, he sat right along with us with his crayon box and pencils. Now, if I only get him to leave the scissors alone. He took a clipping of his own hair yesterday and some from our pug too! William was so cute when he got up yesterday and said, "finally school is here."
Here is William at the end of his first day. Here is his "first day" project. We read the kissing hand book, took his hand print with a special poem and then made "kissing hand" cookies. He was so sweet.

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
