First day of School

This only happens on the first day of school, but the kids were ready and waiting for the bus 20 minutes early.  The rest of the school year is spent by us "grups" constantly haranguing the kids to hurry up and do something (putting on your undies, finding your shoes, going to the bathroom, eating breakfast...).
Lila had her clothes all laid out the night before and there were no moments of angst this morning about her choices.  She did get up at 5:30 this morning because she heard me get up and let one of the dogs out.  I heard a commotion in the room above ours and headed up to find her light on and her half dressed...she wasn't happy that I made her get back in bed but she really needed the extra hour of sleep!
I think they stood at the end of the driveway for ten minutes waiting after slowly walking up the drive.
And the bus did eventually show up.


  1. Cute first day of school pic. Can you take a pic and post this same view when there is 3 feet of snow on the ground? LOL I think its great that your school doesn't start until after Labor Day. You might not agree hehe. But the kids here go back in mid August. Way too early and when they should still be enjoying being kids in the summer.

  2. I wish, I wish, I wish they were in my class!!
    with love,
    Aunt Mary

  3. Could I get a full (large format) version of the Lila photo. It is so lovely.
