First Day of School

The day before school began we went over to the school to meet Dallin and Mandy’s teacher.

Mandy’s teacher is Ms. Ongley.  She seems like she is going to be so much fun. The very first day of class she presented them with a lab coat and Mandy has come home from school every day since then super happy and excited about school!


Dallin’s homeroom teacher is Ms. Cavins.  She teaches language arts and social studies.  Since he is starting 4th grade this year, he gets to switch classes for science and math with Ms. Breen.  I didn’t get a picture of her :(   Both of them seem so nice and so ready to push Dallin to work hard.  Which he really needs!  He told us on the second day of school that he didn’t really see the point of school anymore because he knew how to read so why did he need to learn anything else.  Gah.  We’ve got to come up with a way to inspire him to WANT to learn.  We just haven’t figured that one out yet.


They were very excited about their new outfits for the first day of school that they each got to pick out themselves.  Mandy looks beautiful in hers,


and of course Dallin had to pick out something goofy.  But at least it is a true statement – he does love bacon.  But who doesn’t?


Layton was very sad to see them go.  But he is super excited to get to start pre-k soon!

I'll ask Jon about the "inspire" thing. He was the exact same way ALL through school, and hence never excelled. And his poor mother was so diligent with him too. He finally figured it out in college (thank goodness), but let's hope you can get Dallin inspired before then!
