School started about today for my girls. They were super excited (and nervous) to get back to school. On Monday we had back to school night were they were able to go meet their teacher and see where their classroom was. It was all good except the part with Samantha and Amber fighting and crying in the middle of me trying to talk to the teachers. Emily even lost her tooth during it, when she ate a salt water taffy piece.
Here is Lindsey and Lauren and one of the neighbor girls they are good friends with. It was so cute, we heard this little knock on the door and there was Taylor asking to see if the girls wanted to walk to the bus stop with her. I was just getting pictures, so we added her into them too.
Emily woke up this morning, came in my room in a rage saying, "Why didn't you wake me up?" She was all mad. When I questioned her about it, she sheepishly smiled and said, "oh it is only 6:50, I had a dream I missed school." Apparently she had a dream she missed school, and then when she woke up she thought she was still late and noticed her alarm hadn't gone off yet (because it wasn't time yet) and then thought it was all real. It was pretty funny. She was in a good mood ever since then.
My complaint with back to school, is that they couldn't get Emily on the same schedule as Lindsey and Lauren. The family I was going to carpool are on the 8am track and we are still on the 9:15am track for Emily. Lindsey and Lauren take the bus and they are on the early schedule. I now have another year of having kids go to school at different times and get out of school at different times. UGH! The good thing is... there is a girl that needed a ride to Emily's school (she is in the 6th grade A.L.L. program) and wasn't able to find a ride or carpool. We are now taking her to school and it is on our way to school too. I was happy that at least with this problem of mine, it helps out someone else and feels better I guess you could say.
Now what to do with my older kids in school?
