First Day of School!

It is so crazy that it is this time of year AGAIN! This year, at least, I was very pleased with the teachers when we met them last week (NOT the case last year!). Also, having them be in 2nd and 4th, I wasn't nearly as sad and nervous as when I had a younger one going. This is their third year in the same school and they are confident and ready. It made saying good bye so much easier....I'm not worrying if they'll know where to go, or know how to eat lunch...etc, etc. And...they have been so at each other's throats this summer...that I'm ready for them to have separate time. All in all, this is the first time I haven't felt extremely sad to see them go back. Here are some pictures from this morning:





LD---All alone and driving me crazy! :)

I wish I could take him off your hands for a while.

Fun. We started today also and it was time. I still miss them and the house seems extremely quiet without them. G is taking a nice nap.

They look excited to be off to school.

Good luck with LD!

LD has a very cute grin. Like he might be up to something.

I was just going through some old papers in the basement and found some correspondence from you from back in the day. It was even written on graph paper! That should bring back memories.

Yay, isn't the first day of school great? We're at the same school again, for once, so like you I'm glad it makes things easier for my kids to already know where they're going! You and LD will be buddies all day now! :)

Your kids are getting so big! Sounds like things are good. I know what you mean about having the hubby away. It's only been a few times for me, too - and I have to stay up watching movies until I crash.

Hope you are doing good...
