First Day of School

The first day of school. So much fun today. Lots of driving. Middle School starts earlier than the Elementary School and this year Middle Schoolers where we live don’t get a bus. So I had to take Kennidy this morning. I wanted to meet her homeroom teacher, that was the only teacher we knew of, so far. Her first day of school assembly lasted 30 min longer than I had anticipated but she has a great teacher, Mr. Hunt. He is super nice and funny. And all the kids in the school cheered really loud when his name was called. That’s always a good sign. When I got home I still had one child to bathe and get to school. Oi! But we got to the elementary school and found out where their classrooms were and where they would line up for class.

*I have to say that I don’t like the lack of organization in these two schools. It may work for the staff but as a parent it’s an organizational nightmare. Whatever happened to going into the classroom and meeting the teacher first? First day of school is killing me!

I got the kids off and then Ford and I didn’t really know what to do with ourselves. So much freedom! So we went home. Clean the house. Take a shower. Presidency mtg. at 11. Lunch. Tennis at 1:00. Pick up Kennidy at 2. Adam and Makinley at 3:15. Piano lesson at 3:50. Share the days happenings. Dinner. Bedtime. The end of the day.

Back to school and schedules. I just love it all. But it does make me long for longer summer days.
