Brace face and new school

School started this week! Seventh grade Allison is at Lyons Middle/Senior High School. It's her first time EVER in a public school. It's also her first time EVER to not have to wear uniforms. (Guess which she's more excited about?)

We always expected to send the girls to neighborhood schools by the time they are in high school. Open enrollment will probably come to an end at Lyons as the school becomes more popular. So we took this opportunity to make the move this year. We are excited about the possibilities--for additional coursework, extracurricular options and the chance to play sports at her school. Lyons gets great marks, and we love the fact that it is a small school. It's the perfect transition from Rocky Mountain Christian, where she got such a fantastic start.

The first day of school. Our baby is practically a teen-ager!

What will Amelia do all day without big sisters?

In other news, everyone here between the ages of ten and twelve got braces last week.

Here's Allison's mouth.

(Abby's photos and update will make an appearance when her new backpack/lunchbox FINALLY arrive!....per her request.)
