Raptor started 1st grade on Monday!
I can’t believe how big she’s gotten! She was so pumped about her first day. And she came hoe bubbling over with excitement and even ::gasp:: told me about her day! I realize it’s only the first week, but I can see how nice it is going to be to have her home at 3:15 ish instead of 5:30 or 6:00. She came home, had a snack, told me about her day, we read a chapter of the book we’re reading, (The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe) (I had to add a link so it would be underlined. Aren’t books supposed to be underlined?), leisurely packed her lunch together, and just had a generally relaxed evening. I realize that it will be more hectic once homework starts next week, but I think it’s going to be so much better than last year. I have to say that going back to work full time, having Kate start kindergarten, and being pregnant with multiples all within a 2 week span made for a pretty insane year. I’m so glad to be back at home this year. And today is early release day (her charter school has early out every Wednesday) so I get to have an extra 2 hours with her! Yay! Maybe I’ll try to set up a little activity for her to do while the babies have OT for 2 hours this afternoon… Hmm… I’ll ponder that.
And the boots. Y’all. How darn adorable are those boots. She got some boots right before she turned 3 and she wore them, literally, to pieces. So we got her some new ones for her birthday this summer and she was beyond thrilled. They have (adorable) uniforms, but she still likes to jazz them up a bit and the boots accomplish that.
