Monday was Meet-the-Teacher, Supply-Drop-Off day. I managed to survive getting all three girls to their new classrooms and to visit last year's teachers, all with a wild toddler in tow.
Abbie and First Grade teacher, Mrs. D.
Rachel and Third Grade teacher, Mrs. L.
Hannah and Fifth Grade teacher, Mrs. S.
Two days later came the Big Day! As the girls put on their shoes and gathered their things to head out the door, David realized he needed his shoes and backpack, too!
Wishing he could go to school, too!
Waiting for the bus...
Each year, on the first day of school, I give each girl the option of either riding to school on the bus or driving them. Except for Kindergarten - I reserve the right to have Al and me drive the child to school and to have a good cry on the way home. This year, Hannah and Abbie rode the bus, and Rachel asked me to drive her to school.
