So it is that time of the year again and the boys are headed back to school. This year Owen enters Kindergarten and finally joins his brother, something he has been looking forward to for two years. But after a couple months of summer it was chaotic trying to leave the house on that first day – parents had homework eaten by the computer, lunches needed to be made, and once again we had to wake up to an alarm which ended up not working (or at least the waking us up didn’t work). But two boys, all excited about returning to school, were up with beds made eating breakfast by the time mom and dad arrived on the scene.
Saddened to leave the boys, Melissa didn’t leave the school grounds until the afternoon. Now, truth be told she as “volunteering” but I am sure that was only the excuse 🙂 We both joined the boys for their lunch break at which time I was finally able to remove the mother from school property and take her shopping – distractions work!
On the second day we got a call that Owen had gotten sick, running a fever of 101°. Which got him a day off from classes – and back home to comfort his mother.
For Joe, one that second day we woke up to him all dressed up – shirt & tie. Funny enough, he matched his dad which made drop off at the school fun 🙂 He so enjoyed looking his best and as you can see by the two RRR stickers awarded – he is doing his best as well.
Both boys are excited to be back at school, and now a few days in we are starting to find our groove. The boys have a morning checklist to things that need doing, mom and dad are having a 5-10 minute coffee on the lanai to start things going, and we are all working as a team to get out the door. Looking forward to this year!
