Let's get Excited!!

Last week, the air was charged with crisp new clothes, backpacks, and shoes.  The fragrence of freshly sharpened pencils, unused crayons and unwrinkled paper consumed us.  There was a hint of excitement, building up over Labor day weekend, and then finally, it came.

The first day of school!

A schedule and some consistency at last.

Gimme loves walking to and from school, she feels pretty grown up now.  Plus it's pretty exciting having the kids in her class live close by, so she can walk home with them.  Blanchard couldn't offer us that...

Birdie is doing a little pre-school with a couple of little girls in the neighborhood. Cutest things ever. (She may be able to write her name before Kindergarten after all.)

Mulligan is going to have to take a little more time to get used to the every day school thing.  He's not a fan of the crowds or anything that doesn't involve the Wii or Ipad.

On the second day of school, our after school conversation went like this:

Me (in an excited voice): Mulligan!  What did you love about school today?

Mulligan (in a more serious tone):  I'll tell you what I didn't love.

Me (a little concerned, but trying to stay fake overexcited): Okay, what didn't you love?

Mulligan (dead serious): When you left me there.

It's going to be a GREAT year!
(again, fake overexcited)
