first day of school

You may need to pause the music at the bottom of the blog to hear the video music.

We got through the day with minimal tears, which was a blessing. The kids arrived home safely via the school bus, despite all the evil out there. And now we are just winding down tonight getting ready to do it all over again tomorrow. And I’m going to be completely honest, first and third grade is going to destroy my beauty sleep. For most of the summer the kids and I would lay in bed until 8:30 a.m. which is an hour I only dreamed of for the last 8 years of my life. For the first summer in 8 years I did not have a newborn or 1 year old. I finally had my kids well tuned and trained in the art of a leisurely morning only to see it destroyed by the educational system. Oh joy.

Quote of the day....from this morning.

Jack: "You know why I love that I go to school today? Because now I don't have to empty the dishwasher."

Isabella: "You know Jack, Mama CAN save it for you."
