The big yellow bus came today and took my boys to school. My younger one for the first time. And I didn't cry. He was a bit apprehensive and needed a "Go ahead! You've got this." for encouragement. He was excited right up til that point. The big kid, well....he was anxious to start a new school but was taking solace in the fact that it's a new school for EVERY kid there because last year it was a middle school and not elementary.
Here they are, and yes, if Big Bro is wearing a Minecraft shirt then you can be sure the Little Bro is wearing one as well!
Right after the kids got on the bus and we walked home, Hubby grabbed his bags and headed for a work conference in Texas. There may have been a couple of tears. And they MAY have been that I don't have my own ticket on the plane, and am running the show this week. Nah....I'll miss him. That's the first reason. The second is jealousy of his nice hotel room all on his own. I had my turn in Vermont last May, though.
So it's "Friday Night Fun Club: The Extended Edition" until (you guessed it) Friday. There will be lots of pasta, school fundraiser, karate class, etc etc. Oh, and that pesky thing called Work.
