The first day of school. As you get dressed, eat breakfast, and pack your backpack, you feel the butterflies in your stomach begin to flutter. So many feelings and emotions going through your head as you count down the days, hours, minutes, even seconds. Standing with your backpack on, in the kitchen, smiling for Mom, who likes to keep up with traditions and take "first day of school" pictures. Arriving at *the* building! Seeing old friends, and making new ones. Looking for your classrooms and meeting your fellow classmates. This is going to be a great year at the JOY Christian Academy homeschool co-op!
