Here's what we got of the first day back on Wednesday.
Junior High kids:
Elle trying to show off her shoes:
Max trying to mock Elle's pose:
(that was my fav. picture)
Elementary school kids:
Waiting for the bus (that never actually came that day):
Shots from when my friend and I snuck in to spy on our kids:
(Claire was a little nervous in that last one since she was just realizing she was the only one in class who's mother forgot to fill her backpack to the brim with all kinds of school supplies. Don't worry, she lugged them all to school the next day.)
After school "cookie chats:"
I think it's safe to say everyone's pleased as punch with their new teachers and classes and friends and school supplies (Claire has declared me to be the best mom in the world like five times because I gave in and got her a 3-ring binder with those kittens on the front).
Yep, even that Elle has found friends in every class.
Things are good in the desert.
