First Day of School.

The first day of school is one of my favorite days!

And not because I want to ship the kids out to school. It's because I loved school as a kid and love seeing them get so excited and ready for a new year.

I love getting everything ready set. New outfits, school supplies, backpacks. Having a special supper the night before. Early morning cinnamon rolls and seeing everyone waiting at the bus stop.

Here's a glimpse of our day....

6:45am The first one off.

Our traditional first day of school pose.

7:02am On the dot.


Third grade, here she comes!
7:35am

8:10am His bus was late today. We weren't sure if he'd want us to accompany him to the bus stop but he did.
Fifth grade (and Middle School) here he comes!
12:00pm It was a really, really long wait!
12:10pm Riding in Mama's "bus".
12:30pm At last!
Watch out preschool world, here he comes!
12:31pm That was about as long as he let me stick around.
12:40pm Some one on one Mama and E time.

Can't remember the last time I got to rock and sing with her before nap without interruptions.

With three kids in three different schools, the afternoon went a little something like this:

M's bus arrived at 2:35pm. Woke E up at 2:45pm. Picked up H at 3.

And then we waited at T's bus stop at 3:30pm.
(If you think that's a lot, T and M figured out last week that in 2013 we will have four kids in four schools.)

I'm pretty sure that this little family of ours had the best first day of school around.
And so did I.

Too funny. Last year our provider had 4 in 4 different schools in our district. I can't even imagine!

Tomorrow is day number one for our family. j is beyond excited, and while I am excited for him, I'm also very sad! I can't believe how quickly it goes!

They all look like they were read to go back and excited. I love H's smile...it's so big you can tell that he possibly couldn't wait until he was able to go to school!

I still get really excited about the first day of school. I loved the anticipation of it all... chosing the perfect school supplies, learning who my teachers would be, finding friends in each class. I have to admit, it's still fun as a teacher! :)
