  •   erinmarieyourd So glad for your family!! 8h
  •   jannelle_althoff Thanks @erinmarieyourd ! I'm concerned I may come off as bragging, but we hardly have something go right in our life so having them both in this school really means so much to me!!! Thanks for sharing in that :) 6h
  •   erinmarieyourd No. Youre just a proud (and relieved!) mama!!! 3h

jannelle_althoff I was expecting her to be clingy, crying and scared but instead she walked into class, found her seat and then said, "you can say goodbye now". Now whose the one crying?! 2d

jannelle_althoff I can't express how joyful my heart feels right now. Just had Verona's and Leilana's teacher over for a home visit (is that normal?!) and I'm so relieved to know my two little treasures will be with such quality teachers. Watching them interact, the kids being able to ask questions, getting to spend one on one time... My mommas heart feels a lot more confident to be sending my two little girls to school all day. I think home visits should be a normal thing everywhere. 1w

  •   lilyandmitch We're having one before Joseph starts... not the norm here but I love that his school do it. 1w

  •   dianeschallert It's looking cute in there! We are moving this week too and after just have come back from traveling internationally I feel like we all need a technology break! Don't feel guilty- your girls spent their whole summer breathing fresh air! 1w
  •   jannelle_althoff Thanks @dianeschallert glad to know I'm not the only one :) all the best on your upcoming move! Praying for health and lots of grace! Btw, if you're ever back stateside, come visit us in CO!!!!! I need to see those munchkins! 1w

jannelle_althoff Unpacking boxes and boxes of books (most of my possessions seem to be books) and I found an old gem. I completely forgot about this book. I read it many many years ago when I lived in England. Anyone else give it a read? It was my favorite at the time but it's been so long now that I can't recall why. I'll have to read it again :) 1w

jannelle_althoff Found these teeny tiny sandals that were Verona's while unpacking. She was once this small?!!! And now she's off to full day kindergarten next week. It's mind blowing!!! Time does weird things when you have kids. 1w
  •   itsmika So cute! 1w
  •   katello Full day kindergarten... And how are you handling that? If you have any words of wisdom or comfort, I'd love to hear it... I'm a big ball of tears when I think of sending Isaac there in a week! 1w
  •   jannelle_althoff @katello to be honest, I don't really have words of wisdom. I'm a mess too! Letting go is hard. 1w

jannelle_althoff Hey friends, I made these last year for my kiddos and decided to share them on kidsgoRAWR.com a few months past. But now is the perfect time to grab them with the new school year upon us. They are free and easy to print! (Link in profile) 3w
