School doesn’t start in Virginia until after Labor Day, so that next day, both Briana and Mikey started their first days of preschool! Briana is still attending Purcellville Baptist’s preschool, and Mikey is attending Kenneth Culbert Elementary School for their special education preschool. Both kids were really excited to get to school, but also sad that the summer was ending.

Miss Briana and her love of dresses and very practical shoes. I am loving her hair these days too–it’s gone from wild and curly to long and curly. In just the first few weeks of school, she has become a phonics master and loves to pick out words from our conversations and figure out the letters in the words!
Once the first week of school was done, the county finally got their butts in gear, and our bus service started (you’d think they’d have a whole summer to figure these things out!). Mikey loves to ride the bus (most days)! He has super sweet driver and aide that ride with him and a few other kids. In the morning, I can usually hear the bus rounding the corner from two stop signs away, so I’ll count to 10 and the bus then appears and I tell Mikey it’s magic! He loves it! The aide loves to ask Mikey every day if she can just squeeze him she thinks he’s so cute! He always answers her, “No tanks!”
So what does Miss Evie do while her siblings are at school at the same time on Tuesdays and Thursdays? She hangs out with mommy and has free reign of the toys! I think she likes it!
We are just so grateful for a great school system in our area, and tons of resources to help our kids learn so much so early!
