I think New Year celebrations should be held when school starts. It always feels like the right time to set new goals and try a little harder and celebrate.
The girl got her backpack all ready and headed off to school with lunch in hand. Kinda weird sending her off for her first day of school...ever.
I am so glad jean jackets are in style. I have had this weird urge to buy her docs - not realizing they are apparently making a comeback as well. I think I just associate them with school!
We are getting an earlier start with the boys' school now that she has to be out the door rather early (it was dark until just before she left!). That's a good thing, really.
I was really happy to get a "Great so far!" text from her at lunch!
We watched this video (again) and man, I laugh every time. But the redhead LOVES it and sang it all day.
We have had some lovely weather lately: school outside as long as we can!
After school treat (dough balls are handy!).
I found time to make some salsa (gotta use those tomatoes!), but did NOT find time to mop. Tomorrow?
All told, a good day. Onward!
One of the cool things about her new school compared to my high school: no bells, and ten minutes between each class! !! I had four. Four minutes when you had to fight backpack traffic and somehow get from the german trailer out back to the driver's ed room on the other side of the school down in the basement. Ten minutes would have been heavenly. Maybe even time use the bathroom if it wasn't full of smokers! Ahh, high school.
