A fast summer break, that is. The kids started school yesterday- 7th, 5th and 2nd grades. Ryan is off to Jr. High, and the girls are back to the usual- literally, since they have the same teachers we've had in the past. Meghan has Ryan's former 5th grade teacher, and Erin has the 2nd grade teacher both Ryan and Meghan had. I love it when that happens! They know us and we know them, so it makes for an easy transition.
Ryan is thrilled with his teachers. So thrilled, his worst part of the day was "getting on the bus to come home." Fabulous! Meghan is happy with her teacher and classmates and also had a great day. Erin however, thinks she isn't cut out to being a 2nd grader. Her response to my question of how her day went: "How many days till summer vacation?" Yikes. Her problem? "Mom. I really don't think I'm going to be able to unpack my backpack and be ready as fast as the teacher wants. This is going to be hard!" I tried not to smile, but the seriousness on her face was priceless. I reassured her that it probably took longer than necessary because of all the school supplies she had to unpack and that seemed to pacify her. It should be interesting to hear her next complaint. The kid is always full of surprises!
Welcome to our little piece of the web! If you're looking for literary genius or abundant wit, hit your back button, cause you're probably not going to find it here. Instead, you'll likely be overwhelmed with sickeningly sweet photos of a desert-dwelling family and somewhat average stories of our everyday life. So- if you haven't hit that back button yet, come on in! And don't forget to tell us how cute we are... ;)
