I have been a horrible blogger this summer! I thought I would do a catching up. I just posted several and there are tons more but I feel my Sunday nap coming on:)
Shane and I have both survived our first week of school! He has started football and has several HUGE kids playing this year so he hopes it will be a good season. The first day of school he came home and said no one was kicked out or put in ISS so it was already an improvement from last year:) He is feeling much better this year because he knows what to expect and what's to come. We were both sad to see summer come to an end but happy to have some structure again.
We started the comute and so far it hasn't been too bad. We have been riding together most days so thank goodness for the HOV lane! Traffic is just crazy in the morning. A 20-25 min. drive can turn into an hour quickly!
I have a really great class this year! It was sad to see all my kids from last year and have them walk past me in the hall! I tried to get several to come back to first grade and had several convinced! I'm sure I will have some stories this year! The second day of school I picked them up from lunch (I actually ate with them and only left to go to the bathroom for two min.) one my little boys was covered in ketchup! He is little bitty and VERY active (havn't been successful in having him sit in his chair yet) but so cute. I said what happend bud? He said he was just trying to take home his ketchup to not waste it but the more he pushed it in his pocket, the more it came out! He had stuffed opened ketchup, not the little ones either, the plastic dipping kind in his pocket. It was EVERYWHERE! Pants, shirt, socks, hands...what can you do?
