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 yet...it 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!
