The First Day of School
Yesterday was the first day of school. Matt and Grace had a good day and were full of all kinds of stories. Gracie informed us that her teacher was very nice until she ran out of coffee! Well, I believe her teacher was just teasing them about what happens when she doesn't have her morning joe. Matt was already teasing his teacher, which hopefully will not happen again. I think both of them were glad to have school start.
Aaron, as you can see, was ready for school as well, but preschool does not start until after Labor Day. Instead he hung out with Mom. We explored our friends property and the house they are gutting, we had a close encounter with a bat, and we ran lots of errands. What a day! We also walked the mile to pick his siblings up at the bus stop. When we just about reached the park Aaron informed me he was out of gas and could not go any farther! He did, however, have enough energy to play at the park while waiting for the bus. Before heading home he stopped and jumped up and down several times before taking off at a dead run. We decided he had to "jumpstart" himself to make it home. Life is never dull!!
All in all, it was a great day! They were even in bed by 8:15, which was a feat in and of itself!
