First Day Jitters

The first day is in the books for Gracyn, our Freshman.

First Day of School

There were the usual jitters upon drop off, but she was all smiles at pick up. She kicked the year off with a bang by getting a 100 on her government quiz!

We are pretty sure that she will be just fine as the year goes on, even though it will require a lot of her academically speaking.

Socially, it is promising to be just as great.  She met a few new kids on the first day and had her first social this past weekend.  One of the kids hosted a s’mores bonfire for all the high school students at a get to know you gathering. The high school only has 100+ students so they will have a pretty intimate group with many chances to develop friendships.

These are exciting times!

Linking up with Randomosity, Black and White Wednesday, and Wednesdays Around the World.

  7. I’m so glad to hear that the transition has been a smooth one. It’s always something we parents are nervous about. She seems extremely happy in this picture and way to go with the A on the first test! 🙂

  8. Beautiful portrait and it is wonderful to see how happy she is.

  9. She’s such a lovely young lady. – Is she trying out regular High School this year? Hope she has a great school year. The bonfire social sounded fun. Makes me wish I were that age again (just for a minute or so).
