We managed to stay pretty busy, and have a lot of fun this summer, but always in the back of my mind was how amazing this fall was going to be. Now that it's here, (don't quote me on this) I'm not sure I'm ready. We've been the five of us going everywhere and do everything together for so long, I'm not sure I know how to go anywhere alone anymore. I may start talking to myself or something...
Back to today though, Amos and Maggie are old pros. They know the drill and they were ready for all of it.
Kindergartners and preschoolers get to wear their jammies for one more day...
This kid is the pickiest ever about what he wears...I won him over with the softest hoody ever. And an elastic waistband on those pants.
This girl has turned her back on skirts and dresses. Leggings and t-shirts or nothing for her. Today she finally got to wear her new school shoes, and they're her first pair of lace-ups. I fully expected to be tying them all year. Last night, just as I was putting her to bed, she asked if I could teach her to tie them. I thought we'd try for a couple minutes and call it good, but she had it in an instant. Turns out I don't have to tie them all year.
They're the most amazing friends ever.
I don't know why, but I found Audrey to be a riot all morning. She was totally chill with it not being her day. Ward was a raving lunatic, but Audrey, she's good. Albeit, a little deranged looking.
When the bus rolled up the kids grabbed their backpacks and were off. They didn't look back or even say goodbye! Their bus driver, told them she missed them this summer and Amos looked at her and said, "Is that true???" She thought that was pretty funny.
And with that they were off!
Just kidding, we followed the bus to school to watch them line up.
They were already with their classes in their lines ready to go by the time we parked the car. A couple minutes of being lined up, the bell rang and then they were really off! They both came home happy as clams, school owned.
