First day of school

Yesterday was the first day of school for the boys. Where has the summer gone? I really hate to have to get back into school mode. Homework, early mornings, early bedtimes, packing lunches etc. Christian was the first to rise and shine. He told me when he woke up that he was afraid he would miss the bus and he felt nervous. Ahhh I was nervous with him being gone all day but I tried not to let those emotions show. He has been a little extra clingy in the couple weeks leading up to school. I reassured him throughout the morning and by the time the bus came he was ready to go. I made chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast which they love but tends to be very rare around this house because I am not big on chocolate for breakfast no matter what form it comes in. I am sure their teachers will appreciate this rule!

So how was the first day of school? Well Christian did forget where his classroom was but one of the teachers helped him find it. He also only ate half a bag of Cheetos and fruit snacks for lunch. He came home with his entire sandwich, a friend's gogurt, his grapes, and half of his juice box. They all came home saying they made new friends, they liked their teachers, and there was no homework! I think it was a great start to what I hope is a great school year!

Yesterday was also my birthday so Dan and I went out to breakfast and lunch. We did a little shopping in between and had a great day together!
