Oh gosh, Maddy's in her second week of high school
and I haven't even talked about her first day or first week yet!
So, sit back, get your coffee and here goes!
Oh my word -- they are just adorable.
School started an hour late on the first day - that was nice!
But, Maddy and I had to be there early to sell planners for
a cheer fundraiser. Great little planners -- I even bought myself one!
It was so fun to see the students all coming in for the first day
in their uniforms and Birks (Birkenstocks seem to be the
shoes for high school -- with socks, of course) and
giving friends big hugs and high fives!
Even though there is only 5 minutes between classes, Maddy was on time
to her classes and did not get lost!
One of her friends went into two wrong classes and
then was late to her real classes plus the poor girl couldn't get her locker open!
We went in a day early and walked her schedule so I'm sure that helped.
Maddy was so happy to see familiar faces from her grade school
and friends from the cheer squads -- just seeing friendly faces
helped with the nervousness that comes with a new experience.
Every day improved a bit!
The best thing about uniforms is
the only clothing decision to be made is what color polo and
what color shorts to wear!
Easy peasy -- love that!
Cheer practices continue and the big Fall Kickoff occurred last Friday!
Sadly, stormy weather meant it had to be at the inside gym instead of the
football field, so the big performance the cheerleaders had
planned and worked on ALL summer was cut back to a
short performance. Homecoming is coming up fast
and fingers crossed that the big performance will be then.
Now, if only her backpack wasn't quite so full or heavy
[not enough time to get to her locker between classes],
everything would be near-perfect.
Welcome to high school!
