Happy First Day of School, 2013!

So excited to go to school today! Well, mixture of excitement and anticipation... 2nd, 5th, and 7th grades.  Stephen did his first mustache shave this morning! He was pretty happy when he found out today that the principal hand-picked him to be her front office aid "because he was so friendly and would best greet everyone who came into Doerre" - cute!

Glad that Kenny was happy this morning; he sobbed himself to sleep last night after realizing that Geneve was taken from her mommy. "How could we do that to her? She doesn't have a mommy now mom! She must be so sad and lonely... why did she have to leave her mom?" It was so seemingly random, but after much discussion, it all came out that this stemmed from him not wanting to leave me for school for 8 hours, and on top of that, not ready to leave for 2 years for his mission. It was all quite traumatic... here they are finally asleep hand-in-hand. Not posed.
