Today I sent my smalls off to school. I think I was more nervous than they were. I adore our new school. The drive to the school is a beautiful old road through the county, it’s apple picking season in the county, it reminds me of home. Our school is so small that every class is a split class, the teachers seem so nice. Lily has kindergarten cop teacher, I swear that’s the first thing I thought when I saw him. It’s probably because I forced the smalls to watch it just the other day. I felt like it was a classic they needed to have in their back pockets. ‘Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina.’ Vital movie knowledge, lol. Anyway they introduced him and Lily did the long, slow look from his toes all the way up to his face and burst into tears. She’s never had a ‘boy teacher’ before but as soon as he talked to her I could see he won her over. She already has a friend in her class so she was super happy within a minute. Yay!!!
The boys went bravely to their classes and that’s that! I think we may have had a successful start!
So there we have it guys. It’s back to you and me. What should we do? Right now, I’m taking in the lovely sunshine watching Henry watch turtles climbing onto our raft. I don’t mind the turtles in our back yard but the ducks have got to go. They are cute for 10 seconds when they’re yellow and fluffy and then nada! Get off my raft, beach, yard. And stop pooping everywhere!! I don’t like to wear shoes in the yard! This is very important to me.
I’m lining up all my unfinished projects and thinking about what to tackle first. I think I need a router. I’m not entirely sure what one does but I think I’m going to need one.
Coming up, I have tons of painting projects. Fingers crossed I’ll have trim up, shelves, a bench for the dining table, so no one has to sit on the kitchen stool during family dinners, and… windows! What a pain in the tush replacing windows is!! I’m hoping we can wrap that chapter up tomorrow.
For those with smalls how was your back to school? How is everyone taking the fall transition?
Have a lovely day.
