|middle sons packed bags full of back to school supplies-|
he says it is the heaviest bag he has ever had(!)
|Signing his bus contract this morning; it says he will obey the bus driver, sit in his seat nicely only talking to his neighbor and keeping all of his body parts to himself. I think he will do fine.|
|Signing his bus contract, it says the same thing as our middle sons with the exception of High Schoolers are allowed to use electronics on the bus with only one ear bud in at all times-|
I pull away from the bus stop with a lump in my throat. No tears come and I think they are going to have a great year! I come home from the bus stop to a quiet house as the littlest 2 sleep for another hour. I start a load of laundry and fold a load. I really need to do the 4 mile run today I skipped yesterday but I have to wait until the exterminator comes and leaves before I can get that in.
This back to school wasn't as hard as I thought it might be.
I really believe we were ready for the change from Home School to Traditional Private Schooling.
Wednesday is our daughters first day.
To say she is excited is an understatement.
Her bags are packed and her outfit is picked.
I get to meet her Teacher and all the other mom's (or dad's) tomorrow morning.
I haven't picked my back to school outfit yet. I better do that right after I get my run in.
Have a good Monday!
edited to add: I've picked up our middle one from school. (it was a 1/2 day) Upon entering the car our daughter was the first one to speak... "was it boring, really boring?" Our middle son looks at me and says, "yeah, [my sister] isn't going to survive that!" (in reference to the bus ride!)
And I've yet to do the run. I might skip another day. The hours go completely faster when it is a half day.
I'm tired too.
