It's been a crazy week, but finally,

It's official!

We've moved!

We headed to Hattiesburg to pack up all our stuff last weekend and I'm so glad we had one last weekend in the barn. I really am sad it's over! Excited about the future but still sad - these mixed emotions are really draining...

We moved in on Wednesday which also happened to be my first day of school so my sweet parents drove all the way up here late on Tuesday to help James move us in. I walked in after school expecting to see piles of boxes but instead they had not only moved everything in but unpacked almost all the boxes! It was amazing!!

The first day of school is always so exciting. We plan and plan and have lists of things to do but never know quite what to expect. It's exciting and terrifying all at once.

piles of 'Caught Being Good' coins all ready to be handed out for any decent behavior

the classics, of course

even Frog and Toad and Mouse are ready

Oh how I love new, clean, school supplies. So bright and cheerful - is it weird I get giddy over a new box of crayons?

I guess it's official - my own stationary!

And what makes the craziest first day of school in an brand new city and moving day so much better?

Grace sent flowers to my school and they were delivered right when I was starting to wonder what was I going to do with these kids for the next 5 hours - they definitely make everything better

Yea, she's that kind of sister-in-law. Amazing

Besides one kid calling me out because I said the principal's name wrong and another one calling me out because I had 2 Diet Cokes before noon, things are going pretty great!
I think I'm going to love 2nd grade.

Since crayons are such a big part of your daily life, I thought you might like to know.....

1 acre of soybeans can produce 82,563 crayons!
