They had a great first day…I’m so glad about that. I love that Elle will tell me everything Max forgets.2012-08-08 new school year 593672012-08-08 new school year 59375

Luckily I have older children to remind me to run get my kindergartener off the bus:2012-08-08 new school year 59372

I had kind of held my breath about this girl…so worried about her and how she’ll adjust from a classroom of 15 with three teachers to a classroom of 25 with one.

So far so good.2012-08-08 new school year 59380

Memory game with all the neighbors (even though they’re not in this pic).  When you get a match you tell one thing that happened during the day.2012-08-08 new school year 59390

What did I do all day?  Went to get my gray hair covered up.  And answered 57 emails. 

And tried to breathe. 

I still don’t know how this happened so quick.

And I still don’t get why we have to start school when it is 114 outside.  Literally.

But I’m so glad they’re all so happy.  We are so lucky to have such great schools and such great teachers.

We did finally get to Target last night to get some school supplies and they lugged them off triumphantly for their second day today. 

Slowly but surely we’re pulling it together :)
