First Day of School

This morning the girls got up and around in record time.  In fact, I have to say that preparing for their first day of school went very smoothly.

It was extremely quiet around here!  I don't think that the fact that both girls will be away much of every day has really hit home still feels like one of their day camp days from the summer.  I thought about L a lot, hoping that she wasn't feeling anxious, sad or overwhelmed.

The bus was almost 20 minutes late arriving this afternoon.  L stepped off with a huge smile on her face, and J followed a few seconds later.

L showed me the projects they worked on today - most of which seemed geared towards decreasing anxiety and getting to know their classmates (perfect.)

J announced "Mr. B is AWESOME!  He threw Tootsie Rolls at everyone!"  Apparently, Mr. B is not a proponent of lots of homework either.

We are off to a good start up here on Poplar Ridge.  Here's to another great 179 days of school!
