** school already **

yep.. the time has come.. first week of school is underway..
all my 6th grader wanted was to finally sit in the backseat on the bus ..
& it happened!!

wooooo hoooooo!!
remember those little things..
the backseat on the bus .. a ding dong in your lunch...
sitting by the boy you are crushing on
and the awkward moments..
getting called on in class no matter how hard you looked the other way praying
"no no no not me "
having to walk to front of the class & having a wedgie...
having a tickle in your throat & nothing to drink while the teacher talks
on & on & on
while tears start streaming down your face from the stupid tickle...
you zipper is down
locker rooms
first bra
need i say more??

i don't miss school...
i was the wiggly girl ..
had ants in my pants...
chatty chatty
i'm front row 3rd from left

... too much huh?
i managed a straight A kid that the school counselor encourages
wiggly kids like his mom to hang out with!!

hope your first days went wonderfully

The bus has driven by our house 2 mornings in a row. First day, he kept on going. I made a phone call...
Today, altho he passed, he stopped. It will be nice to have a week behind us! Finding our way thru this new routine is WORK! lol

Tristan started her senior year. She's complaining a lot - about the bus, blah, blah. We just keep saying "It's the last year you'll have to deal with it." :)
