The First day of School

Luke's starting 5th grade today and Sammy is in Pre-K and Tessie has a few years before she begins (thank goodness! Don't grow up so fast!)

Smiling while working on Math- How long will that last??

Sammy seems happy to join big brother with his own workbooks.

Okay, I totally posed this picture. Luke really wanted to have a lightsaber fight with Sam, but I needed to showcase the learning room. Paul worked really hard on this room for us. We have a little Star Wars fan and hence, the Star Wars poster behind Luke. It has to do with learning so I gave Paul the green light to hang it in the learning room.
Sammy and Tess joined in the posed picture. Tess is playing with a puzzle.

Sam stands in front of my glorious wall-to-wall bookshelves!

We worked on getting Luke's desk all ready for a new adventure in learning!
By the way, in case you're interested, this is what the poster says:
All I Need to Know About Life I Learned From Star Wars
Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no Try.
Anger, fear and aggression lead to the dark side.
In seeking your destiny, patience is your ally.
Always let the Wookie win!
When judging people, size matters not.
Traveling through hyperspace isn't like dusting crops.
There is no such thing as luck.
Don't underestimate the Force.
You must follow your own path; no one can choose it for you.
Keep your promises, even if they take you far, far away.
Pass on what you have learned.
If it smells bad on the outside, it's worse on the inside.
The possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.
Wars do not make one great.
Faith in your friends is a strength, not a weakness.
In your pursuit of peace and justice, remember, the Force will be with you...always!
