There is a lot of newness for Savannah this year. Her teacher is an artist and a phenomenal instructor, we are super excited about that. 3rd grade is more intensive and more is expected out of her in regard to independence and responsibility. Last year I volunteered 5 days a week in Savannah's classroom. This year I'm not sure her new teacher will look to parents to volunteer inside the class. I'm a bit torn up about it and she wishes I were there. Luckily her 2 closest friends are in her class and sitting very near her. I took this photo just before she told me she needed to leave the classroom. Once we reached the threshold she jumped into my arms and burst into tears.
She missed the second day of school due to a fever and stomach bug, I'm hoping she will feel well enough to return tomorrow and finish the week strong.
