First Day of School 2009

Ok, it’s that time for obligatory pictures of kids and teachers!  Much has changed since The First Day of School last year.  Here are side-by-side comparisons!

Presentations Galore

It’s that time of year again…when kids’ activities culminate in a show-off of what they have learned!  This is just the beginning for the Michael family…the end of our week included:

stay tuned for some gymnastics & cheerleading thrown in as well!

Another First

Liberty begins offering girls basketball at 3rd grade.  Mac decided to give it a try!  Here are a few pics from the first half of the season.

Scattered Update: Mommy

This week the Michael family is scattered in three places.  Jamie is at a conference in Florida.

The conference is very interesting.

All smiles now!

1st Grade Newbies

Suffering for the cause!


There is a comfort in having all your chicks in the nest.  This week feels scattered.

Mac is staying with a friend as they both take part in Kids Summer Praise, a week-long musical camp at First McKinney.  This is a first for her (more than 2 nights away from family!)

Jamie is out with her 1st grade team from Liberty.  They are traveling all the way to Pensacola, FL for a curriculum training conference.  Nothing like 2 days in the car to speed up getting to know each other!

Dad is at home with the other two for the week.

Be in prayer…for the dynamic that concerns you the most!

Working at school

So we’ve been working on my classroom and thought I’d stick a quick pic of the reading center we’ve created.  The kinder and 1st grade teachers are off to Florida in about a week for a conference…I have a feeling there’s not much play time going on after that!
