It is about 8am in the morning and I sit alone. My husband is off to work and my girls are still in bed. In two short weeks school will be back in session and two little girls I know are going to have one huge surprise. The summer has been very busy with camps and fun and even our first soccer scrimmage game last night. It has also seen many late nights and later and later mornings.
We have not yet received bus passes for the year. Being in such a large district we rotate every few years between “late” and “early” schools. The difference is only about 30-60 minutes in pick up and drop off. Last year the bus picked up at 8:30. From everything I have seen it will be the same this year. Before the bus we of course get dressed and ready, consume some breakfast and practice music. This week I have set a time for bed to start the process of getting them ready. I should go wake them up for the same reason but honestly I am enjoying the silence.
This is a big year! Both girls on the same bus heading to the same school. Madison is so excited to start first grade and Megan admitted the other day she is looking forward to the start of the year. I guess to make that first day as smooth as possible I should go wake them up.
This could get ugly :-).
