So we are back at making lunches, getting up early, getting dressed, and we are out the door by 8:00 o'clock. I take Ellie and Nina to school, and Andy takes Nichole.
I tried to have all three girls pose for a picture, but Nichole would have none of it. So I got the first graders together at least. They are only 8 months apart but the difference in height and development is quite...different!
So I quickly snapped a picture of Nichole with her daddy to remember the day.
Then Andy put her down really quick for a photo but she was not going to stop for me and let me take a picture, so this is as good as it gets.
Once at school, the big first graders were ready to begin the day.
A new year presents new challenges. New teachers, new interactions, new friends. But this is my overall feeling about the first day of school...
As I got back in the van and sat there all alone, I smiled. I forgot what it felt like to have time for myself, and it felt so good!
