School... Again?

Here are my younger boys getting ready to head off for school.  

Calvin is a 4th grader this year and is such a good student.  He already received his first progress report and he had mostly 100%'s.  I think his lowest grade was a 98%.  His teacher called and said that he finishes his work twice as fast as the other kids and then helps her tutor the kids who are struggling.  She wants him to get tested into the GT Program (gifted and talented).  He is nervous.  

Ashton is a 2nd grader and is very kind to everyone.  His teacher has told me over and over again about how respectful and polite he is.  I think that his favorite part of school is walking to and from school with his brothers and cousins: Chase and Colton.  Ashton and Chase love to make up little songs and dances.  They are hilarious to watch!

Devin started Kindergarten this year.  He is in full day (that's all they have here) and he was way beyond ready!  He has a great teacher and loves to show me his sticker for the day.  He is in the same class as his cousin Colton.  He gets his homework for the week done in about 5 minutes!  He's a quick learner and has started piano lessons.  He is following in all of his older brother's footsteps.

 The first week of school, I would get up Lacey and tell her it is time to take the boys to school and she would just reply, "Again?"  We have all adjusted to having school and scouts and everything else.  We are all super busy!

Middle School Days

Caleb and Carson started Middle School this past year.  They actually were in Middle School in Arizona, but this ain't Arizona!  It must be nice to have a best friend where ever you go!  

These boys are good kids and really loving school.  They are both 1st chair in their Orchestra, which is huge!  There are just under 300 kids in the orchestra at their Middle School!  Amazing!  So everyday they take their instruments to and from school.

They are also in the same school as their cousin Alli.  They are  all in 6th Grade and get along great!  How lucky to have family!

These boys love rockin!

Calvin's Latest Project

All the boys have been acting out their own "Indiana Jones" adventures.  Calvin, being so creative, decided to make a satchel for all the treasures they find.  He did a great job designing and putting it all together.  I just sewed what he told me to sew.  The full description and more pictures are located here.
