Wow, where has the time gone?! And the summer for that matter. It went by so quickly and here we are starting school.
August 4th, 2014
She was very excited and the morning went great! She was somewhat concerned about missing the bus, but we had plenty of time this morning.
Here we are, waiting for the bus. I was beginning to wonder if I was going to have to take her because the bus seemed to be running a little later than usual. Fortunately we have a neighbor a few houses over that is riding the bus too, and the bus driver is nice enough to come pick up the kids in the cul-de-sac. The 'stop' is supposed to be down at the corner. I allowed plenty of time to walk down there if we didn't see the neighbor out. But he was waiting in his driveway. So we walked over to hang out.
His mom said that the bus driver was nice and he would pick the kids up in the cul-de-sac, and she had talked to him at open house and said that was still the plan. But we kept waiting and we had already seen a bus come by and an appropriate time. I was really beginning to think I would have to take her! She really wanted to ride the bus and kept saying we could wait more, but I told her that school still starts at a certain time and she needed to be there. Fortunately it finally showed up!
She gave me a big hug and kiss and got on the bus without any hesitation!
I know she will have an awesome day and I can't wait to hear all about it!
It is already entirely too quiet. Even with Maggie here I feel a little lost. We are working into a completely different routine. It is going to take some getting used to, but I am sure I will be able to find a few projects to fill my time! ;)
