First day pics

It has been a while.  I've even got some pictures to post - but I had a hard time getting them to upload.
Sigh - technology.
We've weathered half of the first week of school.
This year I was ready for the kids to go back to school.  They needed to make some friends and I needed to stop running around jumping through hoops for the schools to get my kids registered.
Our youngest daughter said her first day was the best day of school she's ever had.  She got to ride the bus and has 2 friends from the neighborhood she just can't wait to see each morning and play with before the bus comes.

Our older daughter started middle school.
Despite her auspicious beginnings (no schedule, showing up early to figure out where to go and them sending me away leaving her at their mercy), her day didn't get too much better.
She knew one girl in her math class from church.
She had 2 friends from church that she sat with at lunch.
I think those were the highlights.

I got a phone call at 4:39 (the time her bus was supposed to be here).
A tearful child was on the line.  "Mom, I took the wrong bus - I have no idea where I am".
I sort of panicked.
She stayed on the bus, and rode it back to the school.  I picked her up there.
We joked that because I took her in the morning, she was trying to make up for it on the way home with the bus.
I think she's got the routine down now.
Anyways - here are the first day of school pics.

Wish those photos came out bigger! It will be weird not seeing the girls at my school.
Did you haul that old piano all the way to Florida or is that a different one?
Maybe now with them in school things will start to seem more "normal?"
