First Day of School

Here they are - my school children..... They were part excited and part apprehensive on this first day at a new school.
The school bags were packed and I am suffering with RCI (Repetitive Contacting Injury) after covering 14 textbooks and 28 exercise/project/scrap books with contact. By the 20th book I was really getting the hang of it, managing to not get bubbles or to stick the contact to other surfaces....

Drop off went well this morning - we stayed until the end of assembly in the school yard has finished. The children all lined up with their classes. Little Possum gave us a kiss and cuddle before lining up and then a wave as she walked into her classroom with her friends.... Looking a little apprehensive, but not even a fake show of "let me go home again and stay with you"..... completely insensitive to her mother's feelings.... LOL.... is this the thanks I get?... I had a little tear in my eye as they walked in, feeling so proud of my beautiful children but also a little sad at the end of an era. So here I am, at home.... alone.... LP had suggested I could talk to the guinea pigs if I get lonely, and even if they don't speak human they can squeak back to me and keep me company.

  1. Now you've got no excuse but to finish all those UFOs and come round and visit me as much as possible :o)

    Ooh, we can do daytime packing of foil pouches... deep breath, let me compose myself (way too excited)lol

    p.s I think Lucy is going to LOVE school :o)

  2. How fun!! Can't wait until tomorrow - Madi starts then. She is dying to go back to school. Next week Cooper starts preschool. Then it is just Rylee and me two days a week - I might actually get some things accomplished.

  3. Oh, they look angelic in their school uniforms! I can't believe Lucy didn't even indulge you with one little grimace. Hope your RCI rememdies itself (I'm sure it will require MUCH REST and possibly a massage and manicure!).
