Well that was interesting. You'd think with all the years of having kids in school I'd be a little more prepared for the first day of school. And the funny thing, I don't even have to do anything anymore because my last is in grade 12, but somehow that didn't make for any less of a crazy, hectic morning. And I totally missed getting the first day of school picture . Now I'll have to cheat and do it when she gets home.
It always takes us awhile to get into some kind of workable routine where my family can get out the door all the while the dayhome kids are arriving. It's quite the craziness, as my family is trying to reach for shoes and coats while the dayhome parents are trying to get those items off their kids and hung up and invariable my family gets blocked in on the driveway and there's this big juggling act going on with kids and cars and parents. It's quite the circus in my tiny little entryway. And all the while I'm trying to smile and not stress that everyone gets where they need to get on time. Yikes.
But here's to a new year now underway.
