1. Today is the first day of school. Madeline was up bright and early and the middle school bus whisked her away at 7:37AM. Then shortly afterwards it was time to take Ellie to the elementary school for her first day of first grade. It's so hard to believe that I have a fifth grader and a first grader. Here's hoping they have a great first day of school.
2. I got all the school supplies for Madeline and Ellie labeled with their names over the past few days. What sounds like a rather simple thing is really a bit of a pain in the rear process.
3. After much forgetfulness, I finally remembered to buy pocket folders for my religious ed students. I can't tell you how many times I looked at the pocket folders in Target over the past two months and wondered why I thought I needed them. Then it hit me on Monday night that I needed them for my class. Of course, by then it was a bit of a fiasco finding them since most of the school supply aisles in our local stores are bare.
So there you go, I spent the past week preparing for school to start and the kids are now officially in school.
