The 1st Day of School

Well Monday was the first day of school and immediately we had to get into the (EARLY)swing of things. School administrators decided to bump up the start time up for class by almost half an hour so it was a big shock from our summer schedule! But the boys were raring to go - my big 2nd grader and my almost-as-big kindergartener. We all drove in that morning, completely loaded down with the mandatory school supplies, and got them settled.I knew Ethan would be fine, he already knew 1/2 his class. I was a little worried about my Turner, but I shouldn't have been! He immediately spots a friend from preschool, Maddie, and was so excited. He settled right down into his seat and started coloring like the teacher had asked. It made it much easier to leave him that morning.

All in all it was a great day for them and they made it home safely to me! :) But with the horrid heat and lonnnnng day, were quite cranky the rest of the evening. It's getting better but I still think it'll be another week at least before we're fully in the swing.. It can't come soon enough! :)
