Dude. It's finally here.
I can honestly say, I have mixed emotions about today. On one hand, I am so exhausted from a whole summer of kids in my face, kids in my bed, kids screaming at each other, kids complaining, kids whining. The other hand is sad. I miss those boogers. It's quiet here, and I had to wake up early.
Don't worry, my sadness will only last for about a day.
The kids were excited to head off to school. They were happy to see their friends, excited to make new ones. Buddy told me he was most looking forward to getting to know his teacher (tee hee, cutie pie). Rea felt moderately indifferent about the whole thing. Now that she's in 3rd grade, she's too cool for this stuff.
Luckily they both were game to pose for the front door photos. It's the small victories that make me happy. Now, it's time for Mommy to get serious.
Rea is 9 and Buddy is 7. Everyday is an adventure with these two! I love them so much.
