It’s the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!
Oh my word, it’s here.
Okay, this pic above was the first day of school LAST year, but you better believe, we’ll take our traditional front door pics this morning too (and I’ll post them later!).
Things are super weird today…as the first day of school will be at home virtually but at least that’s better than nothing. It’s going to be different, but we’re going to have good attitudes about everything (me included!). If you want to know what we’re eating today, I’m sharing it here…
…in my First Day of School Menu post!
From our traditional breakfast, to our after school snack, and then of course, our favorite first day dinner, you can see it all in THIS POST.
Yesterday morning, I was laughing out loud. I woke up all kinds of melancholy because even though our big summer vacation was cancelled, we didn’t have our annual road trip, camps cancelled, no volleyball games, no church activities, the house flooded…all things are WEIRD and WRONG, we had a really good summer, and I’m sad to see it go. I was telling Andrew this and then I said “my one regret is that I didn’t sleep in more” and he goes “my one regret is that I didn’t throw an extra tarp on the roof”. Guys, I couldn’t stop laughing. You know how sometimes you just get “tickled” by something and cannot stop laughing? That was me at 4:30 yesterday morning when my husband nonchalantly said he should have thrown an extra tarp on our roof. Here’s what I’ve learned this summer, no matter how crappy things can be, as long as I have my people, I have everything I need. Summer 2020 you were probably technically our worst…but I will take great memories of you with me too.
From here, I’m going to leave you guys until MONDAY. I feel like I need to make sure we get our feet under us this week with virtual learning for four kids, so I’m going to take a little blogging break and come back here Monday morning. In the meantime…
…look at this precious picture right here. Guys, these kiddos were all about to start kindergarten when we took this and now, they’re all heading to SIXTH GRADE! Where did the time go?! It goes by so quickly. All of you new mamas enjoy every minute.
Have the best back to school day! I’ll see you all on Monday! xo
