The Back to School Festivities began with a Back to School dinner party.
Everyone had a special note from mom on their plates. Then we dug into some delicious food. Everyone shared a little "speech" of their favorite memories/activities from summer. Oh how I will miss summer.
But oh how I welcome schedules and routine!! (even with my best efforts to have routine in the summertime.....just doesn't happen. I guess I'm the only one who thrives on schedules!)
Before the bus... Thankfully they are not very first on the route this year. I've been able to do Madelyn's hair in the bathroom instead of at the breakfast table while she is eating! Yay.
Hooray for School!!
Pose of choice....yep that is Madelyn picking her nose. I used to pose like that all the time in H.S......haha. Except not with a smiling face, more like a you caught me red-handed face.
Another pose of choice....
Waiting for that bus.
This is how Hannah waits for the bus.
This is how Lily and Dad wait for the bus.
This is how Lily wants to join them at the bus stop, but can't. Then proceeds to throw a full blown fit (20 minutes to be exact) when her Dad goes to work.
While we talk and catch up I am busy signing permission slips and glancing over classroom rules and expectations.
The first day went great and they are enjoying school so far!!
