School Days

First Days, thru the Years.

So my friend emails me first thing this morning with POST THE PICTURES ALREADY as the topic.

My reply?

Stop pressuring me, I have all day ALONE. I'll get to it.

So yes, both my children are at school safe and sound. It took some work but we did it, we did it. What worked? Teamwork!*

Breanna made pancakes for breakfast while I packed lunches. Everyone got ready without arguing and posed for first day of school pictures. We were out the door right on schedule.

That's when all the planning in the world does not help, because frankly my dear the rest of the world doesn't give a damn about my plan. The essence of the problem? That freaking soon to be mud pit beside the school. Everyone is used to that being our overflow parking. Without it. Mass freaking chaos. Probably redundant to now say, drop off was HELL?

I ended up walking them in because of course we were running late-ish because of the ungodly traffic and Bre didn't want to be late. Brooke doesn't give a crap but Bre CAN NOT be late EVAH! Did I mention over 50 cars and at least one bus were well behind us? And tons of people were still walking? Whatever. I told Bre if there was a legal parking spot in the lot I'd park, otherwise it would be quicker for her to walk Brooke in herself. Of course someone pulled out right in front of us. So I walked Brooke in in order for Breanna to get to class ON TIME! Brooke was happy to find her teacher in the lunch room where all the kindergartners wait for the bell. She was however completely baffled by the unruly actions of some of her future classmates. You should've seen her looking at them like "Have you animals never been to school before?" Cracked me up! I can't wait for the stories this afternoon!

Now I'm off to eat bon bons and watch my stories.

*Snaps for naming the theme songs referenced.


Ah, and with a WONDER PETS quote, to boot!

Can I CRY now??? :'-( When did they all get so big???

They are both so cute. I love that school's already cancelled due to weather. That's not something we get here in August, usually more like February!

very cute. That stars and stripes dress looks familiar.....b/c it's in my closet now :).

For the mud pit..I feel your pain but at least they are finally starting the playground and perhaps daddy and I can stop taking Twinkle all the say to Delany Park....
