Back to School!
My boys just left for school. I tried to send a You Tube of the song Celebration with Kool and the Gang but it never showed up. So if it does and I say the same thing twice I apologize but play the video and do the happy dance with me anyway!! Some firsts: Fish drove them all to school. How weird is that after SO many years of taking kids to school to stand at the door and watch them drive away. I have 6 1/2 hours!!!!!!!!! Bear took a long time to get dressed because he didn't know what shirt to wear. I assumed everyone had gone through their new clothes and knew what they would wear. At 16 I was not going to question and make a big deal of it. He walked out this morning in an old shirt he dug from his hamper that was really wrinkled. I asked him if that is the first impression he really wanted to make. Eventually he changed. I had their new back packs with supplies in my room until this morning so that they would actually all still be in there for the first day. He wanted it early so he could see if I did it right and he wanted to add some things. I told him for today he would have to trust me and I'd give it to him on the way out the door. Then he can keep it in his room and add other things. I constantly have to check his back pack to see what is in there. Partly to see what he is taking from home. Partly because he is taking things from school that are not his. So...........they are gone. I'm going to go play. Have a healing day!
