We finally arrived at the first day of school. The boys left this morning before it was even light out.
They have about an eighth of a mile walk to the bus stop, and unfortunately it was raining buckets when they left. The worse thing is that the movers lost all of our really nice, large umbrellas, although the boys assure me they wouldn't be caught dead with an umbrella.
Emma left at a more reasonable hour, and the rain had stopped by then.
Emma shares a bus stop at the end of our driveway with a neighbor girl who is just one grade above her.
About 40 minutes later it was finally Sophie's turn. She didn't seem to be shy or nervous at all about hopping on the bus. Maybe it helps that our neighbor on the west side is also starting kindergarten.
Now it's just Henry and I. On nice days we will take a walk around the neighborhood, but it was starting to rain again so we came in to have a snack and do some work.
I can't wait to hear how everyone's day went. Hopefully a warm cookie and tall glass of milk will get them sitting in the kitchen long enough for a rundown.
