I know it's only August 12th, and I'm way behind in telling about our summer, but today was the first day of school for the girls. Last night for FHE we went over some rules and packed the girls' backpacks. Mat was a little nervous and Mickey gave her a blessing. I was worried they wouldn't want to get up this morning because they had just started sleeping in the last few weeks. Kade was the first one up at 6:30. Since he came in to sleep with me and didn't go back to sleep neither did I. I got up and Meg was right behind me. Mat didn't have a problem either. That's a bit of a shock since she's NOT a morning person. They got dressed and ate breakfast and then they were ready to go. It was only about ten after seven and the bus wasn't coming for another 30 minutes. I had some time to take some photos of the girls. They both got a professional haircut yesterday. (It looks much better than what I do.) They look so cute.
Kade enjoyed his time today without getting picked on or having to whine about what movie he wanted to watch. Here he is playing legos. He did this most of the day, sometimes with a movie on.
I got to enjoy a quiet day. I exercised and was in the shower by 9! I also got a lot of work done around the house. That will be a post for tomorrow.
The girls made it through the first day just fine. They both like their teachers, neither one got the one they wanted but both teachers have pets in their classrooms so that's a bonus. Thursday we get to meet the teachers and see the classrooms. That will be fun. Here's to a good school year.
