Off They Go

first day 09.jpg

We made it through another first morning of the first day of school.
New clothes were laid out ready for this morning, hair brushed, hot breakfast, lunches made the night before, and somehow we were still late. I'm blaming it on the pouring rain and not my perpetual problem of tardiness. Jack did ask if they could NOT be the last kids to be picked up from the car pool this year. I told him I would do my best.

I'm pretty sure this will also be the longest week of my life as preschool does not start until next week. This fact is near impossible for Lucy to understand as she had her snack and tote bag ready by the door this morning. I've never seen her get ready so fast and be so cheery. I've explained, clarified and drawn charts but there is no convincing her. She's sure it is a conspiracy against her.

So here we are, hoping all is well. Holding hope and space even from the house, saying little prayers for lunchtime friends and kind teachers.

If your crew started school today, how was your morning?

Don't feel too bad; we missed the bus this morning. In my defense, the driver chose to reverse the route from what was on the printed schedules sent home (and from what the route has been for the past 5yrs!). But still. We missed the bus on the first day of school.

Aside from a groggy mommy, we had a great first day! My first-grader surprised me by being nothing but confident, no fears peeking through. The only hiccup in our morning was after the bus pulled away and the one-year-old cried "want ride too!" He missed his big bro all day and we had a joyful reunion in the afternoon.
