Just an update on some of the fun milestones we are experiencing in the family.
Briggs found out he is going to be in a K-1 combo class this next year. He had his Kindergarden tea yesterday to get oriented to school and is very excited. I'm not sure how I feel about my 4 year old being with first graders, but I realize that at his reading level, this is the place he needs to be. There will only be 6 little kindergardners in the class, but he will get to do 1st grade work if he is able to and the teacher thinks it is best for him. I really think this is going to be great for him because he would be bored out of his mind if he had to sit and color an apple and learn the letter a.
Ashlynn found out yesterday who her teacher is and shed some tears because her best friend Maggie is not in her class. Maggie's mom and I took the girls out on a date last night to ease the sting a little bit and the girls were so silly and out of control I really think it is a good thing they are not in the same class. They might drive their teacher crazy otherwise!
I'm looking forward to school starting, but I will miss the carefree days of summer.

What a blessing for Briggs. I can't believe he is still only 4, I'm sure he is a 40 year old hiding in a 4 year old body. Sorry for Ash and Maggie, but you are right about driving the teacher nuts! This way she has a good chance to stay friends with Maggie a longer time.
