The first day of school! Can you believe it? My 1st grader keeps saying "I can't believe I am in first grade" - over and over again. And my daughter started pre-school today as well. It was a very big day in our house. I think first grade is really the first true independent memories that I have. I remember we put on a play where I was The Candy Man. My grandmother sewed candy all over my clothes. I was very popular that day. I remember being swarmed by the kids as soon as the play was over.
I am really hoping for a great year. Day one is down and so far so good. No Take A Breaks. And that is a success.
My daughter on the other hand started pre school and did have a great day but also had some issues with group time. I was told she was strong willed. My response- YUP! That is why she is there. Hopefully in a few weeks she will adjust and learn the rules. But other than that she had a good day.
Leading up to this week I spent a lot of time with H. I like to have the summer go out with a bang. So I took last Wednesday - Friday off and was at the mercy of the whims of my 6 year old. We played a lot of Mimi golf. And I mean A LOT! Every day in fact. We also went on rides and got new shoes and ate where he wanted to eat. I even threw him a play date party. (which I will post about tomorrow).
Tonight was also soccer. This is just the start of the season of activities. Soccer, swim and Sunday school. But I love it. Even though I may complain dome times. It was so cold out tonight. I was absolutely NOT prepared. I had no coat and was wearing flip flops. So not flip flop weather. I even kind of gawffed at one mom wearing UGGS. By the end I was totally jealous of these UGGs. The blue team played awesome and I am very impressed with this league.
My evenings will now include showering before bed instead of the morning and getting lunch ready for C - all to make the mornings go smoothly. Goodbye to my summer hours of sleeping in and bellow to only one hit of the snooze button.
