August 17 was Ellie's first day of first grade. It was her first day at Falling Branch. And her first day of riding a school bus! Our things haven't arrived from Idaho so we are sleeping on borrowed air mattresses in an empty house. But we got up and got dressed from our suitcases for the first day of school. It went swimmingly. So grateful for such a sweet teacher in Mrs. Dunkleman to help Ells Bells transition to a new place.
