Since getting ready for back to school has been such a hectic time, I haven't had a spare second to do a summer recap. We had such a wonderful summer, so hopefully I'll get a chance to go through our hundreds of pictures soon. Instead I'm going to just get right back on the blogging bandwagon and start with back to school. After all, my year starts in August, not January anyway!
I am more than ready for a new school year to begin. It seems unreal to me that I have a third grader and a first grader. They were so excited and a little nervous about the first day of school today. I felt the exact same way. Luckily, it all came back to me when my little first graders walked in the door. Also, the exhaustion came back to me--not sitting down all day, repeating myself 445 times, eating lunch in five minutes flat, and retraining myself to only go to the bathroom during my lunch and planning time. Fun, fun times! Also, I am sooo glad I planned our meals and did all of our grocery shopping for the next two weeks. It's going to make my life so much easier with back to school, karate, soccer(just for Max this year), ballet(soon for Emma), faith formation, homework, and Max's birthday next week.
Damian went to work at his usual 4:30 a.m. but wanted to come back home to send us all off to school. The kids were happy we were both there!
Emma is thrilled with her teacher, classroom, and the fact that some of her very best friends are in her class.
Max was also a happy camper today. He told me I was right and first grade is awesome.
Here's to a fabulous 2013-2014 school year!
