Anthony doesn't seem too anxious about being in the middle school this year, which is a good thing because I've been stressing it! He had his orientation this past Monday evening and all went well....except he couldn't get his locker open! Haha, he'll figure it out. I'm really proud of him for taking all this newness in stride. Change can be scary, but he's holding his own!
Molly is her usual happy-go-lucky self, excited as always about school and being around her friends! She's really happy about her teacher and had a great open house last night. If you were to ask her what she's most excited about, she'd answer her matching scissors and pencil box. Hahaha!
We are a family of planners and a family that thrives on routine. Or at least I do! Backpacks and first day of school clothes have been ready for a week now!
As always, Papa made breakfast and I got to work packing lunches and making sure everyone was doing what they were suppose to be doing and on schedule. Being that the bus stop is 3 miles away and we have to drive there, there is little room for a time error when getting out the door!
It was still dark out when we took our back to school photos, ugh, but there was no way around that. Papa couldn't stay to see the kids on the bus this year, he had to get to work, so we had to hurry up and take the photos before he left. They're not my best or favorite back to school photos due to the lack of light and needed use of the flash, but oh well. I got a few of the shots I wanted anyway! Besides, we'll get more on Timothy's first day next Tuesday!
Happy first day of school, Cutie Pies! I can't wait to hear all about your day and what this new year has in store for you!
