Tomorrow, the boys start school.
Ben will start all day Kindergarten.
Eight years ago this week, we started with our current sitter.
Today, was our last full-time day with her.
Next week will be the first time I've not had a day care bill in 13 years.
Next week, I start saving for parochial High School.
(Josh starts in 2 yrs.)
Bookbags are packed. Lunch money is in the school accounts (everyone's buying tomorrow), everyone knows their PIN numbers for lunch. Bus Passes are in everyone's bookbag, and the safety patrol hats are attached to Josh and Matt's bookbags (they are on patrol this week and next). Nick and Ben's snacks are packed, and water bottles are in the freezer.
Clothes are laid out, but still need to get new shoes laced.
The kids will have a hot first day - no air, and up in the mid nineties. They may end up ending school early tomorrow due to heat. Josh and Matt are upstairs in the school building, Ben and Nick are downstairs.
Have a great first day to everyone who starts soon, and I hope those who have started have had a great start!
In other news, we're not flooded, but there is loads of it happening within the state.
Work is busy, and I had to go stand up for myself (and the other 2 ladies in the group) today. Long story, and we'll see how it all pans out before anything else is said.
I'm not looking forward to the start of Homework. *sigh*
The boys all got fine teachers - Nicholas I was worried about - the one third grade teacher is a nightmare, and I was worried about him. But he got the other one, so we're good. I am hoping this is a good year.
Matt goes in two weeks for a consult for a secondary set of braces. There is talk that Nicholas needs to start his first set. Nicholas had to go today and have a tooth pulled. It was interferring with the permanent teeth, and starting to abscess. Lovely. The tooth fairy has to come tonight.
Thinking of getting a new laptop. Haven't decided yet, but the HD on this one is full, so I've got to move files and the like.
This is such a pointless post.
