Today was the first day of school.
(I'm not sure if I'll ever get used to starting school the first week of August but at least we get plenty of breaks during the school year.)
So far Lauren likes her teacher. Her teacher, who I play bunco with, had to miss part of the first day to settle her own daughter into a college dorm.
Lauren is excited and thinks she's going to learn a lot from her teacher. ...And I plan on throwing every Bunco game to her teacher to ensure some straight A's.
(just kidding, Lauren does not need my help academically)
Tyler got the same teacher that Lauren had for 2nd grade and I am thrilled. I was so impressed with Mrs. B that I wrote a letter to the principal after Lauren's 2nd grade year saying how thrilled I was. In the letter I added a sentence saying, "I know I'm not supposed to ask but if there's any way I would love for my son to have Mrs. B when he gets into second grade."
And looky loo he did!
He's going to have a great year.

While they were at school I went to the gym and then pretty much waited by the door until they got home. I missed my kiddos.
Finally, they made it back home.
discussing their day
They both had a great day.
Tyler was excited to do his homework (read his weekly story) and Lauren was excited that she didn't have any homework. They both said school was fun and actually went into detail telling me about it. (i.e. what playground they played on, how tasty lunch was, who were the good kids/trouble makers in their classes...etc. etc.)
After homework was done Tyler invited the neighbors to come over to play.
They caught me with the camera while playing on the trampoline.
For dinner I made Lauren's favorite meal.
Chicken Drumsticks, Asparagus, and Grapes.
Welcome Back to School 2013!
