|Selfie on the way to Meet the Teacher night at school.|
The school is always abuzz with excitement at these types of events, and this night was no different. We saw parents and friends that we hadn't seen all summer, so everyone was happy and hugging to welcome one another back. Even Chuck E. Cheese was on hand for the fun.

Before we could make our way to the kids' classrooms, Kaitlynn had a very important first stop to make. She just HAD to hug the neck of her awesome kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Wright. Oh how we love this woman! There is just something special about kindergarten teachers that makes us never forget them!
|So happy to reunite with Mrs. Wright!|
Next stop was Connor's 4th grade classroom. Connor's classroom "looped" up with the same teaching team this year, which means that he would have the same two teachers from last year (one for math/science and the other for language arts/reading). But since his homeroom (math/science) teacher didn't return this year, Connor was anxious to meet his new homeroom teacher, Mrs. Vivier. We all loved her and could tell right away that it would be another great year. And Connor loves the fact that he'll probably be taller than her by the end of the school year, ha!

Connor was of course excited to have most of his friends from last year returning this year in 4th grade. Connor and his best friend, Jayden, have been in the same class for 3 years now. Happy boys!

After finishing up in Connor's classroom, it was time to head over to meet Kaitlynn's teacher. Kaitlynn was SO excited, although she had to overcome a little shyness at first. She was initially disappointed that none of her close friends from kindergarten would be in her 1st grade class, but she quickly got over that because she was so excited about her new teacher, Mrs. Hebert.

Kaitlynn quickly located her desk and was very excited to see who she would be sitting next to. She recognized a few students from her class last year, too. I think it started to sink in for her that she was now officially a 1st grader. So exciting!

|Welcome to 1st grade!|
We are so thankful for such a great elementary school with loving teachers for both of our kids. No doubt it will be another wonderful year at WoodCreek!
