So, how did it all go? How did they do on their first day back at school?
We actually got up on time – 6:30 a.m. We moved up our wake up time so they could move more slowly in the morning.
Everyone was dressed and ready to go on time too – shocking for us! We did the first drop off for Rose and then went to Walsh’s new school about a mile away. He immediately started chatting with some little guys on the playground. (They drop off to the playground out here so they can play about 40 minutes before school starts depending on what time you get there. Gwinnett always had morning work. What do you like better? Getting some energy out or some extra math in?)
After chatting with some neighbors I headed back home to get Lilina to take her to her first day of 4-year-old preschool! She’s going three days a week for five hours. (It was sort of compromise to get her ready for long kindergarten days next year. I didn’t want her to go five days but three hours didn’t seem like quite enough.)
She walked right in and was ready to work. Picked a cubby, made a picture, wrote her name and then made gingerbread men out of cinnamon-scented play dough. That was all in the first 10 minutes. I only teared up a little bit when I left. She seemed in good hands.
I headed to the gym alone and then home to work alone!! Shocking development! I also made some Funfetti Lollipop cookies for after school that apparently every other mother also made today! (Lots of Facebook comments on it!)
Hope everything goes well, and everyone is happy! Submit your photos and also let us know how everything went!
