It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...part 2
Yes, today was the day moms wait for all over the valley. The kids were up and ready to go bright and early. Unfortunately for the little ones, they're school day doesn't start until 9:15 and they're not supposed to be there any earlier than 9 (unless they go for breakfast and then they can be there at 8:45), so to keep them from climbing the walls, we decided to go run some errands. I was in the office by 9:15 and was able to work until 12:45 uninterruped by any phone calls of, "Mom, Griffin just spilled his bowl of cereal on your bed," "Mom, there's a spider downstairs," "Mom, can all my friends come over to play while you're gone," etc. Everyone noticed the spring in my step and the song in my voice. The house was still clean when I got home and there were NO dishes in the sink. Ian got home at 1:30 (Monday is early-out day in the school district) and yelled, "I'm going to love this year!" Maggie was thrilled with friends that were in her classes, although she has already declared that one of her teachers is certifiable. Griffin and Ellie also had a great first day which is always good news. I do have to say that Ellie has probably the best teacher in the school, so this year should be spectacular. Griffin's resource teacher, Miss Becera, already has him scheduled in, so no repeat of last year when we had to repeat the testing so he could qualify for assistance. But he said he has some of his best friends in his class and that Miss Shumway was so awesome.
