First day of classes at MCS: Success!

5 09 2011

I know you’ve all been anxiously awaiting word on our first day of school today. So here it is! Most of this post will be pictures, but let me just say that our first day went better than anyone could have expected. Our students were excited about being here, they participated in class, and they adjusted well to all the changes we threw at them. Thanks so all of you who have been thinking about us and praying for us over the past days and months. God definitely blessed our first day here, and we’re all excited to see what this year has in store. Without further adieu, here are some pics from today.

Excited about the first day of school!
