We're all of 2 days into the twenty16/twenty17 school year.
So I thought I'd document it ...
We ( ... mostly rex & i) worked our butts off prepping for this year.
We're starting in a better place than last year ... all sorts of amens for that.
There's a sentimental-ness to this year .... like it might be Sailor's last year at home or it's the last year before Chad starts kindergarten.
Gosh, the years are truly long even though the days are short.
And then in the last 2 and a half days, I listened to this book on audio & I'm challenged to all depths over everything school related.
Seriously .... what is with them.
We had every internet crisis in the world yesterday & that grounded several subjects.
We fought over math.
We forgot times.
We used brand new crayons.
We started a new read aloud book.
We ate lunch together ... sort of.

(the girls weren't feeling the pictures like the boys. or really just Dolls .... who thought she'd be late for class)

Chad fell asleep on the way home today & never woke up.
The boys in earth shattering shock came home & on their own did homework.
Regan rode her bike for over an hour.
Molly started writing a book.
Sailor changed clothes & begged to go out with a friend.
Rex had an all night meeting.
We bought churros at Costco just 'cause.
And also ... a pumpkin pie ....
It's not even September.
I told the kids we couldn't buy one every time we went from now till holiday everything.
But you know .... our baby is ok with pie, so there's that :)
Yeah, it's just day 2 but gah ..... they are fabulous & I'm slayed over the privilege of being with them during their school days.
