first day of school!!!!!!!

Today is the day that parents look forward all summer.... the first day of school!

The girls were all up and ready without any problems - the neighbors even razzed us for be at the bus stop early (mind you it's at the foot of our driveway, but we often have trouble making it out on time) actually, we were out 25 minutes early to take pictures and then the bus was late, so we spent quite a bit of time waiting today!  Hard to believe that big S is in 5th grade already - last night she said that she wanted to stay a little kid (welcome to the club honey) but this morning she was really psyched to be in the highest grade and already talking about going to middle school next year!  

Little S is in 3rd and little G is in 2nd, so they still have a few years left in elementary school!  
Our bus stop is huge - 9 kids this year and all the ones who aren't mine are boys - the girls find them to be SO ANNOYING!!!
What am I going to do with all this time on my hands?  Ha!  I had my 2nd cup of coffee, blogging (of course).  Then I have to deal with real life - groceries, cleaning, laundry....  I want to be a little kid again too!!
A coffee cup toast to all other moms who's kids are finally back to school - and a nod to those of you who still have a couple weeks left of summer vacation!!!

Sweet G! All the girls are so grown up, and aren't you amazed that our G & C are 2nd graders? N is starting Kinder next week. *sniff*
Happy first week back!
