First Day of School at La Paz

Elliot's first day of preschool! Brody heading to Mr. Dodges 4th grade class and Brooklyn heading into 2nd with Geneva and Sara team teaching. First day they focused on Peace Practices, get to know you, and schedules.

Elliot was so nervous when we walked in and some of the preschoolers were crying. She was like, " what is this place where all the kids are crying?". She wanted to be with the big kids who seemed much happier to be there! As soon as she found Ayla she was fine. They held hands and looked on like dear in headlights, it was quite the sight!
Brooklyn was greeted by her close friends and felt really happy. She said the best part so far was the dry wick athletic uniforms were so comfortable!
Brody was excited to start class with mr. Dodge, supposedly the world's best teacher. He has to make all new friends, but the task doesn't seem to phase him.
When we came home Elliot passed out in dead man's pose on her bed. She never naps , but it was quite a day!

7th House the Charm!

" I felt like this day would never come," and "it doesn't feel real!" are just a couple of phrases I heard in my house this week. We moved into a neighborhood we have wanted to be in for a year or two now. Surrounded by friends, great location to beach/La Paz Community School/ stores, paved road for bike riding, and really safe. This morning when I walked my dogs I even saw dogs on leashes!!! Our pool is huge, and the very best part; I get to put an indoor gym into the remodeled garage! Lots of excitement around these parts. The move came just in time for the start of the new school year. Surrounded by our friends, the school, the beach, feeling like the 7th might be a charm.
