It's school time again!! Grady is an old pro, going into 2nd grade. Needless to say, this summer time boy was not excited for school to start. Myles was excited but hid it very well because his big bro kept saying that he didn't want to go back. Grady got a wonderful teacher this year. He won teacher of the year for the county. I think its great for Grady to have a male teacher and one that makes learning fun.
Myles has a cute, sweet kindergarten teacher. I'm sure they will both have good experiences this year.

Walking to school
Myles and Anika were lucky enough to get into Evergreen Charter School. It is by far, the best school in the county. There were over 200 applicants for Kindergarten and they only had 13 spots. It is done on a lottery system and both of our kids got in. It was totally amazing.
Evergreen is a school based on Expeditionary Learning with a heavy emphasis on environmental education and consciousness. To this environmental educator mama, this means everything to me. Kids need to be outside, experimenting and exploring. All subjects can be taught this way....and should.
Myles sat down and went to work right away. He didn't even want to say goodbye. Look how serious he is. He was ready for Kindergarten.
