First Day of School – 2014

Today is the first day of school for the kids. Sarah has been home-schooled up until 6th grade. This year she will be going to Merced Christian School….5-day a week. She’s actually excited to go, and has a few friends that she met last year when she went there to try out the school.

After one year at Keyes to Learning (KTL) in Keyes, CA, we decided to mover her back to Stone Ridge Christian High School in Merced. As usual, Hannah (11th grade) is not looking forward to it. Always 180-degree opposite.

I wanted to take the photos at the front door, but the morning sun was in everybody’s eyes. That’s why I wait until after school to take the pictures. I wanted to get it out of the way, so we moved into the backyard. Our shed doors make a nice background, but by the time Hannah showed up, the sun was hitting the backyard so I had to move more to the right. Oh well. Hannah wasn’t happy about getting her picture done, but I told her in 20 or 30 years, you’ll be happy I did this.
