The First Day of School Favorite Things:
Cole: "Finding out we can earn points and get rewards, like a no-homework pass, or sitting at the teacher's desk all day!"
(Ah, 3rd grade... ah, my son... who thinks sitting with his teacher is a terrific reward for good behavior...)
Isabella: "Playing with hoops on the playground!"
Jadyn: "Riding on the bus!"
Phoenix: "Sitting on Mommy's lap all day! Undisturbed!"
It went off without a hitch, as they stepped onto the bus with big grins and eyes only for the day ahead. They left me smiling, and they returned home smiling & chattering and full of stories.
More later... good night.
