B-A-C-K TO SCHOOL ... (Happy Voice!)

Eric's first day as a bald Freshman!! Tualatin High School now has TWO Giorvas kids! I'm happy that they get a year together. Both Jenae and Eric came home today saying how cool it is to see each other all during the day. Jenae and the other seniors (yes, indeed, senior) don't start until tomorrow but she's a Packleader (freshman babysitter) so she went today too. She is doing lots of leadership things - she spoke today at the opening rally and she's in charge of the rally on Friday too. No pictures of her today but I'll get some of her tomorrow morning on her way to Senior Sunrise (watch the sun rise together on the first day, watch the sun set on the last! Cute, eh?)
Eric and Shanna getting ready to head off to 9th and 5th grades...
Shanna's in a class with two good friends, Sam-left and Maddie-right. She likes her teacher so far, but this judgment may be revised at any time..
Fun organizing all the classroom goodies!!!
I had a fabulous day of working and enjoying the solitude! Beautiful weather and sunshine and children happily nestled away at school. Priceless.

Hi you asked me about Oregon websites. I have 3 I visit regularily. You can go to my website and find them. They are on the right hand side under the three kids" piture and the heading is WESITES
These are three neat gals raising children. They have interesting lives and post some wonderful thoughts often.

I too am enjoying my hours of solitude while the kids are at school. It's amazing how much we can accomplish when we are given the luxury of completing a thought without interruption. Ahhhh. . . bliss. Enjoy your time. :)
