Back to School!

8/10-8/21/18- And just like that, we’re off for another year of school! Baylor was so excited and not even one ounce nervous to get back to school. We met his teacher, Ms. Rodriguez, on Friday before his first official day on Wednesday. I knew as soon as we met her that she was going to be a fantastic teacher for Baylor, and I can say with confidence now that we’ve been in school a few days that he is in for a great year. She really understands him and meets him where he is. I can’t wait to see what he learns and how he grows this year! This was a special First Day of School because Daddy got to take him! Daddy said he ran into the classroom and never looked back to say bye. He loves his school so much and was so happy to be back! He tells us all the time I just love my school!” and we couldn’t be happier that he does.

On a meta note, welcome to our official Burk Family Blog website! We’ve kept up the Tumblr for almost 4 years now so we decided it was time to make it official and get all this backed up so we don’t lose everything we’ve gotten so far. Transferring everything takes time so older videos aren’t all here yet. The Tumblr is still live, but we won’t be updating it anymore- all new content will be here where it’s a bit safer and easier to access. Posts will probably be a little further apart because it’s a little more cumbersome to post here, but the assurance that this will be here 20 years from now and the ability to search by date make the switch worth it.

So excited to start school that he could hardly stand still for pictures.

The last days before a baby sister is born are looooong so we fill our time with lots of board games.
